Pros

It is an exciting place to work with all of the acquisitions that the company is making.

Cons

There is little standardization of processes across the company. Everyone talks of "legacy" company origins and the way this are done for that legacy part of the company. There should be one way to do the same thing within the company.

    Cons

    Management does not always act like they care about the employees. Also the revenue numbers out weigh the customer care.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If our customers are taken care of our revenue numbers will be met. To many times we put the revenue numbers ahead of doing what is right for the client.

    Pros

    Wonderful people.
    OK pay.
    OK benefits.
    Great parties and stuff for the kids too.

    Cons

    Time Driven.
    Schedule (ask weekly overtime at beginning of schedule sometimes),.
    Worst quality software of my entire career.
    Women generally don't advance. No raises or extra money for taking on promotion (even after years).
    High stress.
     Fire people a lot.
    Top management have history of lying about layoffs.
    Low morale.
    Don't bother learning better ways to do things because you won't be able to use it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop firing people, and take some time to improve your quality. I think that CCHIT should make a requirement that before an release can be certified, it must supply metrics on their release (percentage of test coverage, unit test coverage, perfomance test coverage, code analysis metrics(averages by function) such as cyclomatic complexity, depth of inheritance, class coupling, lines of code). Then they should start defining minimum averages required and slowly start increasing the minimum quality required.
