    I worked at Descartes Systems

    Pros

    You get a pay check.
    Free coffee
    If you are lucky, it will be a short commute
    any port in a storm (it's better than not job at all)

    Cons

    Company policy is at least 4 years between pay increases of near nothing.
    Some managers will treat you with respect others lie to your face to manipulate you to work more.
    Company stated policy is to squeeze "resources" you like a lemons

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    At least try to show some appreciation for the people making the company run. AND actually know what your managers are doing, some manage people like personal servants but not in front of you.

    I worked at Descartes Systems full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Get to take on a lot of responsibility over a diverse set of systems. It is a great learning opportunity.

    Cons

    A lot of fire fighting. Lots of short term thinking from above. Resistance to invest in labor saving tools. Callous treatment of employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn to give ALL your employees recognition for their efforts. Recognize high turnover as a cost.
