A good place for junior developers to gain experience

Developer (Current Employee)
Des Plaines, IL

I have been working at Founders Insurance

ProsIf you are just starting out as a developer this is a good place to gain experience. You will learn N-Tier architecture

ConsAn experienced developer will not find much to keep him/her here. They are still using 2.0 framework and you will get permanently attached to a project. The pay rate is about 20% below market rate.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep the programming tools up to date and try harder to keep senior devs engaged.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
