Worst company I've worked for in my 15 year career

Software Development Manager (Current Employee)

ProsGood benefits, very financially stable, great teammates

ConsTo start with, this is not a technology company - this is a marketing company where technology is treated as overhead resource. Everything is driven through (unrealistic) deadlines where software gets shoved out of the door at all costs (both human and enormous technical debt). Enormous amount of bureaucracy where it takes weeks of "following the process" to make a two line code change. Outdated technologies and tools (or more often no tools at all) - complete lack of automation with trivial tasks. VP's have no authority to make no-brainer decisions. Everything has to be approved by CTO who lacks technical understanding yet constantly gets involved in the "weeds". You'll be losing your skills (and brain cells) here very quickly.

Advice to Senior ManagementEmpower mid-level management to make no brainer decisions (and hold them accountable for the results). Change the culture of "all the responsibility with none of the authority". The company can't scale where one man makes every decision.

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