    not a great experience

    I have been working at Avue Technologies

    Pros

    Good benefits - fully paid insurance for employee and family with a good insurance company and plan. Decent salary - good considering the job market in this industry.

    Cons

    Lack of job security, no regard for personal time when the company is on a deadline. Last year we missed the memorial day holiday because of a mandatory company deadline - with NO notice and regard to family time. When you turn in notice to leave the company you will be promptly escorted to the door. Not a secure environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat you employees better, PLAN projects and estimates before committing to a client, do not waste time on demos that go nowhere.

    I worked at Avue Technologies full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Tacoma is a beautiful city, great to have a work place downtown

    Cons

    Leadership was the worst, fostered poor work enviorment with very little speaking with co workers. Weird place is al I have to say.

    I worked at Avue Technologies full-time

    Pros

    It's very close to Galanga Thai Cuisine. Health insurance (including dental and vision) was fully paid for and surprisingly decent. People who experience trauma together can become best friends.

    Cons

    Absolute micromanagement hell. Priorities change as the wind blows. Megalomaniacal management (and they're proud of that). Technologically clueless. You will not see your family or friends. You will have scheduled time off and holidays cancelled at the last minute. You will not get reimbursed for travel and hotel stay. You will get reamed if dare take or make a personal call after you've walked in the door. You may wonder what it'd be like to jump off the roof.

    I worked at Avue Technologies full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Pays well for a first job, get to work with lots of talented developers, a good sense of camaraderie between the devs, very convenient if you live in the Tacoma area.

    Cons

    Very chaotic and ultra fast paced. No real training on the company product. No development methodology in place.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Implement/adopt a software development methodology so your talented developers have an opportunity to write solid code.

    Ramp up new developers and provide training on the product they are supposed to be working on.

    Hire a project manager and plan projects (provide development specifications/documentation).

    Use Jira.

    Don't expend valuable development resources and brain power on a feature that you think the customer might like to see in a demo (i.e. no gold-plating).

    Don't release functionality for public consumption until it's at least somewhat finished/working/stable.

    Have developers work in teams.

    Poor management and no respect for their employees

    I worked at Avue Technologies

    Pros

    Avue has good benefits for their employees (health care). Good location (downtown Tacoma). That's really all there is positive to say about the company...

    Cons

    Low pay, long hours, no room for advancement. Management sells their products before they actually exist or based on screenshots so developers are forced to work unpaid overtime to add the functionality. There is no consistency in the code base (see spaghetti code). The worst part about the company is they have no respect for their employees and treat them like expendable work horses.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A little respect goes a long way. Hire good developers, pay them well, don't overwork them and give them the opportunity to write good code.

    Poor management, reimbursements do not get paid for months.
    Work here if you don't want to ever see your family.

    I worked at Avue Technologies

    Pros

    Medical Coverage, Two Weeks Vacation, Free Booze (with management team!)

    Cons

    Often owed money to employees for travel, medical coverage cancelled for non-payment, upper management clique-ish, long hours, excessive travel time

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay for your employees back for travel, people should not work to pay for work expenses.
    Start respecting your staff!
