Outdated Technology Stack, Methodologies and Processes

Senior Software Engineer (Current Employee) Sunnyvale, CA

Pros- colleagues are generally nice and competent people
- new campus with lots of parking and free drinks
- weekly informal get-together

Cons- product is married to a proprietary technology stack that is hard to learn, poorly documented, and has a limited feature set
- aversion to open source, with a strong not-invented-here mentality (Ariba Web does not count)
- open hostility towards engineering practices like test automation, code coverage, etc. that do not directly correlate to new or better features
- outdated engineering processes

Advice to Senior ManagementFrom an engineering perspective, spend some time to clean up your technical debt and embrace modern engineering processes

From a management perspective, please don't drive your engineers to work nights and weekends.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
