Pros

decent benefits, good for a starter job, or for a short period of time

Cons

you need to give 24 hours notice to use a wellness day, if not you get an occurance. They have given me less than 20 minutes notice for overtime. Managers choose favorites, too much mandatory overtime, repetitive movements causing strain on back, havent seen a raise in 3+ years, underpayed for the duties

Advice to Management

Treat employees like a person, not a robot. Instead of criticizing, talk to us in a manner that will motivate us, not anger us.

    Pros

    Somewhat flexible hours. General freedom in how to approach issues. No micromanagement. Very nice and knowledgeable team lead and senior developer.

    Cons

    Average wages. Little to no advancement (perhaps mostly economic). Hectic work environment. No cross-department oversight of project development. Little communication between departments that are dependent on each other.

    Advice to Management

    Treat this position (product data programmer) as a skilled position to foster specialization and productivity, instead of a test bed for fledgling programmers looking to quickly move on (higher pay, attention of upper management). This is being done somewhat now, but the past effects of this attitude have lead to many current difficulties. Also, projects need greater attention to base design before work is started, forward-looking goals instead of emergency-based responses.
