Can't believe I stayed 5 years

Software Engineer (Former Employee)
Durham, NC

I worked at EBSCO Publishing

ProsSome people within and the majority of people outside of Technology Department are hardworking individuals. I'm thankful for having worked with them. They are the reason I managed to stay with the company for five plus years.

ConsI can't speak about the group in Ipswich. I did not work there. Interactions with them were pleasant. Middle and upper management in other locations are dishonest and care less about their subordinates. They only care about what airplanes and motor bikes they ride. In fact, most conversations are dominated by talks about airplanes and bikes. Never once I was asked how I'm doing personally. They are very egotistical. The people they pick to be in their den are of the same mindset. If you come at them from a different point of view, they will crush you. They are the ones who are hurting this company. I do not recommend working in IT.

Advice to Senior ManagementMy advice is to never ask people working for you to not complain about you to other managers because it will get back to you. This is just stupid. Work on creating more pleasant work environment. Don't create divisions in the ranks. It's counter productive. Also, get rid of your Project Development Lead and the Software Architect. They are incapable of getting along with anyone within the department or across departments. They are cancer and cancer should be treated.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
