Pros

CARFAX operates with an Agile software process. Small software teams work through weekly iterations utilizing a git and CI oriented workflow. Testing and Pair programming are the foundation for good design decisions, minimizing technical debt and creating a sustainable pace of development.

Cons

With all the perks and optimizations for developer happiness, it is easy to regret jobs held prior to this one. About 90% of the companies developers are based out of Columbia, MO so if you wanted to remote in or move about the country, this isn't the company for you.

    Pros

    there is free lunch on Fridays

    Cons

    Management and HR are absolutely terrible and incompetent.

    Advice to Management

    Take a long hard look at your senior management team. Senior management seems to be filled with a bunch of yes men.

    Pros

    Met some great people..co-workers. Benefits were ok, salary lower than average.

    Cons

    Nepotism is ridiculous..there's a reason why it's usually frowned upon to have so many family members working at one organization. Too many managers have slipped through the cracks because they toe the line & drink the kool aid.

    Advice to Management

    So many good people have been let go or left on their own just because they didnt have a certain last name or weren't part of the derrière kissing club.
