Advice to Management

With a product that is so promising, meaningful, useful, and most of all complex, having long term employees is crucial. Ever since the economy started to improve, too many good employees are leaving Axeda for higher paying and better opportunities. Find a way to fix this.

    You will be scrumed to death and steped over and replaced with offshore as soon as your soul is consumed.

    Pros

    11 hours is a normal, very agile work day there, btw include weekends too.
    Great company, but you won't make it past 6 month, so long term plans shouldn't concern you.

    Cons

    Over commitment is wide spread, people are digging their own graves there, while management quietly exploits that phenomenon at the expense of unsuspecting peasants, who on purpose are made to be slightly late and feeling guilty. They figured a great way of running it isn't it?
    Up to 1 hour of STAND UP Scrum every day at 9am sharp and don't be late as most people live within 15 mile radius and it's not a problem for them. Others simply do not survive past 6 month.
    You will be baby sat to death. Frequent scrum inspection is really frequent and beyond annoying, you will need to tell how many hours you will need to do something you have no idea what it will really take, then your fair estimate will be slashed by 40-50% and that's what you commit to whether you want it or not.
    Hello 12+ hour days, enjoy it, however consider UPS instead, with overtime you may end up about even. Add to that two DAYS of non stop scrum planning and review twice a month.
    Also, you will be called anytime late evening or weekend and rushed to do some nonsense made- it-look-like can't-wait-till-the-next-day imaginary critical issue..

    Pros

    Product is interesting and has good potential. Very good techies who you can learn from.

    Cons

    Going through a transition period right now, maybe better times ahead. Kind of stuck on older technology.

    Advice to Management

    Talk to employees more and keep them informed of what is happening...too much room for rumors and gossip when information if not available officially.
