    I have been working at IQNavigator

    Pros

    Flexibility, telecommuting, great employees, casual dress code

    Cons

    Quite a few of the Senior Management have recently jumped ship, so all new managers are attempting to change the existing culture of the company for the worse. No tuition reimbursement or company matched 401k.

    I worked at IQNavigator as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    people are friendly and nice, mostly

    Cons

    Their sales reps determine the level of effort for development tasks although they claim to use Agile Methodology. Their development environment is unstable resulting in daily crises. Don't be surprised if you spend as much time fixing your environment as coding. E.g., every time you upgrade to a new branch it takes 1-3 days to fix all of the problems that have been introduced. The code is a total hack job because there are so many serious design flaws. I've never seen anything like this place in terms of generating frustration.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Your company is trying to move from a start up to a more stable company. That's a common problem and the solutions are well known. The most important thing to realize is that trying to chop down the tree when your ax is dull is counter-productive. Being a start up means you have accrued technical debt. Until you inventory your technical debt, prioritize it, and periodically have sprints where you deal with it, your velocity is going to suck. If you don't learn this lesson, you're going to start losing market share. If that doesn't wake you up, you're going to go down.

    The second thing you need to realize is that you need to stop rewarding the "heroes" who are responsible for creating these crises so they can be the hero who saves the day. They were the reason why you got your demos done by skipping "doing it right" in favor of "getting it done". But now they are the biggest inhibitors of your transition to stability.
