A very confused company with poor management

Front-End Developer (Former Employee)
Seattle, WA

I worked at Corbis as a contractor for less than a year

ProsNice downtown office.
Majority of people are friendly.

ConsVery disorganized technology stack and procedures.
Marketing management have very little technical knowledge, yet they still insist on making ill-informed decisions regarding web development.
Long hours, they recently downsized from 6 devs to 2, yet expect the same amount of productivity.

Advice to Senior ManagementListen to your devs, and don't overwork them. This is a town where it's very easy to move on to another job.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
