Current Employee - Senior Developer III in Portland, OR
Current Employee - Senior Developer III in Portland, OR

I have been working at Cambia Health Solutions full-time (less than an year)

Pros

It's a nice walk from the Max Red/Blue line. Some of the people there are really good devs.

Cons

Where to start.
1. They have far too many managers. That spend far too many (expensive) hours in pointless meetings.
2. You can't get anything done there, without consulting a bunch of 'managers' and filling out request form after request form ..and waiting 2 weeks for it to be approved.
3. Dilbert lives here! And Ratbert is on the 14th floor.
4. They 'say' they are Agile ... but they wouldn't know a successful sprint if it bit them.
5. The code is 10 years old, written by various contractors over that time (they only recently started hiring FTE) and not documented. If you want to live in javascript hell and support an app from 2001 ... good luck to you.
6. The managers are idiots and couldn't code their way out of a paper bag! They also make Top-Down decisions so watch out for the politics!

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get out of the way!

    Pros

    Nice bonuses, friendly in halls, office is in walkable area downtown, culture respectful towards bike commuters, there's a nice private health club for employees that costs very little to join

    Cons

    Not a mentoring culture, very political environment undermines risk taking, they lay off lots of people every October in a sneaky way without talking about it from the top, good people in manager and director roles quit a lot and leaders don't address it at all/say there may be something wrong with how they manage

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remove leaders if people keep quitting on the same one
