Satisfied

Senior Software Development Engineer (Current Employee)

ProsGood work environment. Fair amount of freedom makes for a comfortable work environment.
Number of interesting projects to work on with new technical hurdles to overcome all the time.

ConsLack of vision from management, though this has been slowly improving recently.
Too much focus on following methodologies without enough critical thinking.

Advice to Senior ManagementFocus on more concise and constrained targets. We should focus on creating features in products that will help to satisfy the 80% of our customers instead of adding complexity through esoteric features that few will ever use.

Working towards small focused and well defined goals will help increase moral and focus and quality of work. Too often are we chasing the big goal which may be years away which leads to loss of drive and passion for achieving the goal over time.

Having entry level positions in the engineering department required to be hired on as hourly and forcing them to punch a clock is not going to help draw in new talent.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
