    Former Employee - Senior Software Engineer in Greenwood Village, CO

    I worked at Trustwave full-time (more than an year)


    Good work/life balance. Good, intelligent people...for the most part. Plenty of development work. Challenged on a daily basis. Not bored. I had input into the direction of the product and it mattered.


    About 6 months before I left they brought in a new Manager for our team. The old manager was a great guy. Smart. Good developer/architect. This new guy was terrible. Poor management skills. Poor development skills. Poor people skills. Big mistake hiring this guy. Not sure how he managed to weasel his way into the company. He was incredibly confrontational and the team-oriented atmosphere suffered and of course morale declined. Two other guys ended up leaving because of this guy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of this guy. He doesn't benefit the team. Poor management skills. Poor development skills. Poor people skills. If it hadn't been for this guy, I'd still be there. Aside from this guy, I liked my teammates, management and the company.
