This was a while ago; company was all right

Software Developer (Former Employee) Waterloo, ON (Canada)

Pros* Laid back environment
* Good camaderie amongst team-members and within offices
* Incredibly smart people on every team

Cons* Source control was a mess; feature code was stuck in untestable feature branches while QA spent months on a frozen head; trainwrecks would occur every time we merged development work back into head, we'd need months to sort that out, then everything would repeat.
* Mentalities were in flux: some teams had decided that their old processes weren't working, and the transitions weren't seamless. There were people who very much held to the status quo, sometimes being positive skeptics, sometimes being obstacles.
* Waterloo office was in the middle of nowhere, very little connection to local tech scene, no attempt to make presence and take advantage of Waterloo's reputation as a tech hub.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
