    Current Employee - Oracle Database Administrator in Merrimack, NH
    Current Employee - Oracle Database Administrator in Merrimack, NH

    I have been working at CAMP Systems full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    People here don't know anything about technology so you can fool around without working and work in technology even you don't know anything on technology.

    Cons

    Work culture
    No professional work environment
    Very less salary for the number of hours you spend at work
    Management demands to work 24/7
    Employee treatment
    Management attitude toward the employees

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When I joined I was told the previous database administrator worked like a slave and he was humiliated and fired for the hard work and it didn't made sense at that time and cannot imagine any company can do like that and now after few months with this company I realize it could be true. Hard working people are humiliated and ill treated in this company and one who survive is the one who knows how to flatter the management in an obsequious manner and support all their ridiculous ideas. Less salary per hour compared to the number of hours you put in. I am running away from this company.

    I worked at CAMP Systems full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Coffee machine.. Ehhh it's drinkable. Bagel Friday's. Nice vending food. Flexible hours. Company socials seem good (at least food wise). Workers work because it's a "job."

    Cons

    There is no level of respect. They make it seem like there is, but there isn't in the Tech Dept. I have never been treated so unfairly, and so disregarded as an employee ever in my life. Most of the time I would work on a project three weeks on and three weeks off. So that meant that for 3 weeks I'd be twiddling my thumbs not working, yet collecting a pay check. And when I'd request work, it'd be something silly like placing an icon somewhere. Mainly, my manager didn't know how to handle my kind of work. My work wasn't important enough for the customer it seemed. The director didn't know how to manage me. He just didn't value my employment.
    The programming is all choppy and messy because non-Americans are working on them. The Indian level of computer education doesn't match that of an American worker. CAMP's programs = cheap labor. And it shows.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take some time and hire some professionals to teach the managers HOW TO BE good managers. Because you have people who are managers who SHOULDN'T BE managers.
    Also stop being greedy, managers are getting 120k bonus where "grunts" are getting 1% to 2% bonus. It's disgusting.
    The employees aren't the problem, it's bad management. We just want to work in a place, be happy and earn to live. It's already tough as it is living on Long Island, stop making it worse by depressing your workers.

    Pros

    Management does seem to be starting to think along the lines of what might be needed for growth. There is some potential there. The flexible hours are nice. The people I work with, including my direct managers are nice.

    Cons

    The pay is lower than it should be. And the amount of time I see people spending here is pretty crazy. So it seems like people are just clinging to their jobs here for fear of the job market. Also the product design is pretty awful. The code is a mess and very hard to learn because there's no documentation, and no instructive comments in the code. And the design is very poorly done so it becomes very difficult to follow a code path to the code you need in order to make a change or a fix. It's pretty brutal.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I don't know how much upper management is paid, but if the gap between upper management and the grunts is large... fix that. Stop being greedy and pay the employees more. There are a lot of hard working people here who deserve to be paid very well. Also, a ground up re-design without the tens of thousands of lines of JavaScript might be good.

    Pros

    Decent health benefits. Decent PTO if you don't have to use it if there is a blizzard or a natural disaster- this place never closes even when major roadways are closed or a hurricane knocks out the power for a week.

    Cons

    Unending work and meager salary raises, very unprofessional environment, building is falling apart, lack of structure in terms of advancement. Most people would bolt at the chance to go somewhere else. High turnover and no interest to find out why.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Encourage and reward excellence. Find out where the fat lies and cut it out, it's killing the company. Offer a competitive salary and empower employees by allowing them to work remotely.

    Pros

    Not many.. Bagels on Friday, if that is the sort of thing you are going for. Medical benefits are decent.

    Cons

    Overworked and under (read "not") appreciated. CEO is too far removed and has no clue about what's going on at the grassroots level. COO has no strategy in place and makes people jump through hoops. The company is ticking away waiting for an implosion.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Employees at all levels including middle management are extremely dissatisfied. They will bolt at the first opportunity. Don't micromanage, empower people.

    Pros

    Health Benefits, Reasonable PTO time if not used for snow days

    Cons

    Very unorganized management(lack of structure), low pay for the amount of work and type of work performed, lack of training, HR dept helpful only on certain things which are of little significance. No opportunity for input or to grow, Suggestions from lower ranking staff taking with a grain of salt. Company will not make it once senior staff leaves high turnover rate.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Develop a better management structure and proper chain of command. Improve turnover rate, Stop only relying on senior staff that will retire in 5 years time and focus on the future of the company.
