Current Employee - Software Development Manager

I have been working at Madden Communications

Pros

Management is willing to listen and change. IT department infrastructure and software is top-notch. Management communicates well and company direction/thinking is transparent for the most part. Business and IT work well and agile development practices in place.

Cons

Career growth seems limited. Lots of legacy systems in place that need to be upgraded in the coming years to keep current (this could be a good thing for IT)

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Try to keep innovating and sign up new clients to increase revenues and streamline processes. Try to keep your best people by showing them a career path.

    I have been working at Madden Communications full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    The people make the difference! Other than that, great benefits, continuing education, fun activities, bagel Fridays, and efforts made towards improving the culture from listening to employee feedback.

    Cons

    No profit sharing match, not a good work/life balance due to lack of flexibility, ran too much like a plant.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Different departments (prepress, creative, press, warehouse, account service) should be able to have their own culture and policies for a better working environment. Flexibility with start and stop time would be extremely beneficial, especially for employees with long commutes.
