    Former Employee - Software Developer
    Former Employee - Software Developer

    I worked at Camilion

    Pros

    Good salary compensation. Respectful atmosphere. Younger crowd is vibrant. Professional environment.

    Cons

    Lack of direction in senior management. Too focused on satisfying every client's demands and not solving the real problem they have. Poor emphasis on quality, high emphasis on speed without design work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Solve real problems and issues. Clients do not know what they want. Tell them what the solution is, not make what they tell you to.

    I have been working at Camilion

    Pros

    Camilion is all about the people. Friendly (for the most part;)), intelligent and hard working. The benefits are amazing and salary is competitive.

    Cons

    Camilion, can sometimes be it's own enemy. As in any place, politics can get in the way.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees. Let go a little. Give ownership to those you've hired and trust in them. The senior team needs to entrust and take a chance or two.
