    Former Employee - Senior Quality Assurance Software Engineer in Denver, CO

    I worked at Rocket Software full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Worked with a tight-knit group of QA Engineers and Software Developers, performing U2 database builds daily on Unix/Linux for the QA team to test. The engineers are very skilled at maintaining the U2 Databases and associated Client Tools, and are constantly working on adding new tools and features to enhance future releases. Several people in the the company have been there over 2 decades, so their working-knowledge is very deep.

    Cons

    Overly-aggressive growth goals caused recent financial difficulties for the company as a whole, resulting in unprecedented company-wide lay-offs of many good, dedicated, long-time employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Steadily build on the strengths and stability of the individual business units within Rocket, without trying to grow and change too quickly.
