    Pros

    You don't have to do much here to get promotions and raises. Many of the software developers here lack motivation, so it's easy to stand out. Stick around for about 3 years, don't create too many defects, and you'll be looking at a Dev Lead position, since there's so much attrition.

    Cons

    Many of the people here have a lack of motivation, either because they were born as clock-punchers, or because they tried to change things and got discouraged. The QA group generally does not read documentation, so they end up writing a lot of emails for clarification. The BAs also tend to clarify a lot of things via email, without documenting them (causing a downward spiral since the docs are not up to date). If you're a motivated person, who wants to change things, this probably isn't the place for you, since there is a lot of resistance to change.

    Advice to Management

    Ditch ADS. You don't need to stick to archaic technologies just because they have a "track record of success".

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Argo Data (Richardson, TX).

    Interview

    I applied to a job posting on Indeed.com. About a week later, I received a call from HR and a telephone interview was scheduled for the next day. A week after that, an onsite interview was scheduled with the hiring manager. I returned the following week for two additional interviews: one with an executive and one with the peer group. Later that same week, I received an offer of employment.
