    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Decent benefits package with 22 days vacation to start. Casual dress

    Cons

    You'll never get to take your 22 days vacation because the incompetent management and extremely poor, seat of the pants project planning will doom you to working 60+ hour weeks and deathmarch projects. Incredibly out of date technology and non-technical management afraid of making decisions of any kind. Pay average at best with miniscule bonuses if any. A few favored technical architects with zero skills and no social skills get to set direction. Employees treated like replaceable cogs. Only people I would recommend working there are contractors since they get paid well, don't have to be on call, and get to work on better stuff than the permenent employees.

    Advice to Management

    You were the problem and from what I here are still there. Move on and let someone who knows what they are doing run things.


  2. Unprofessional management, poor project planning, no room for growth, lots of scrambling and finger pointing.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Casual work environment (jeans). Lots of hard-working, friendly staff in analyst/developer positions. Good amount of vacation time. High-level intent of company growth.

    Cons

    Some of the most unprofessional management I've seen in my career. Not a place for those seeking work/life balance or genuine interest in career development. Archaic, out-dated software. Continuous cycle of management over-promising in unattainable time frames. Due to poor planning, management consistently scrambles, pushes long hours, and points fingers. May be good for short term, no longer than 6 months. Noncompetitive pay.

    Advice to Management

    Rethink the strategy used when promising work to clients. Use stricter process with clients when they request changes after sign-off. Mid and low-level management would benefit from training on effective management styles, interpersonal skills, and should refocus on employees in a genuine manner.
