Used to be fun, but with long hours and average pay. Change in management and a reorg made the environment dry.

Senior Software Engineer (Former Employee)
Chicago, IL

ProsHeavy LAMP (linux, apache, mysql, python). Smart coworkers you can learn from. Interesting projects against cutting edge technologies and methodologies.

ConsYou were expected to put in pretty long hours because the timelines were so tight. There were a few performance bonuses, but for the most part compensation was average at best. Change in leadership left us unsure of the direction of the company and cause many people to leave.

Advice to Senior ManagementAs a technology company, software developers should be valued. Hold on to those that keep the train on the rails. Raise compensation levels.

    Good place to learn if you a willing to put up with under compensation and are very self-guided.
