Pros

Latest technologies are implemented at Digital River, which lends the opportunity for an engineer to remain current in their skills and expand their knowledge with the products they work with.

Cons

Although the vision of the business is exciting, management doesn't have a plan to get there and they will typically make hasty decisions based on input from those that have no experience with the products and technologies they plan to implement. This leads to more administrative overhead and implementing bad practices.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Listen to subject matter experts, and take their advice about best practices - this is the reason they were hired. Micro-managing your staff is a bad idea, especially those with special talents in a niche product that brings your business to the next level. Remember, your business is nothing without the people that support the technology.

    I worked at Digital River as a contractor for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Lots of exposure to technology and problem solving right away. Work is respected. Typical tech company perks.

    Cons

    Management changes direction often. Need to have a long term plan and explain it to the rank and file employees. Not sure what the next innovation is for this company. May just be looking to do more of the same with he clients. Not much career growth opportunity.

    Reward you "Difference Makers" instead of rewarding based off length of employment or the account set you own. Focus on core commerce more.
