Pros

Because they are so unstructured one has the ability to influence change

Cons

under staffed
over worked
technical staff not treated fairly
PM's have no authority

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Management, manager the customer and stop over allocating resources. Over allocation of the resources is causing the best of our talent to leave the company, leaving us further short handed. Additionally, it's our best talent that's leaving, leaving us understaffed with those who are less talented to get the job done.

    In my opinion, for a Software Engineer Apollo used to be a good place to work, but not anymore.

    Pros

    Benefits are good and pay rate is OK.
    Apollo always throws a good Holiday party.

    Cons

    In my opinion, favoritism in advancement decisions is rampant with the unspoken endorsement of upper management.
    In my opinion, there is no respect for software engineers and they are treated like lower tier employees.
    In my opinion, Engineering has a layer of so call ‘architects’ that are the most egocentric and arrogant people I have worked with.
    In my opinion, the current working environment if very poor in the new office space but management refuses to acknowledge the dissatisfaction after receiving feedback from many employees. In my opinion, there is no intention of investing in real workspace improvements.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you are doing if you want to lose your best engineers but keep a layer of ‘architects’ that in my opinion cannot (or refuse to) do engineering work.

    Pros

    Pay is decent, and some cases the managers are very good.

    Cons

    The main problem here is that upper managment does not appear to be cohesive with an ability to focus on a long range IT plan and stick with it. Communication and goal setting appear to be a foreign concept here.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Figure out a high level plan of direction for the IT group and provide definitive leadership and stop making so many changes with staff.
