Do yourself a favor and look elsewhere, high turnover, poor treatment of employees & constant stress over job security.

Pros

In No Particular Order: 1) Access to real world technology 2) Very intelligent and helpful and friendly colleagues. 3) Cutting edge technology where budget allows 4) Amongst colleagues open technical discussions and open discussions for improvements.

Cons

This List Is In No Particular Order: 1) High employee Turnover, willing and unwilling. 2) Lack of process, procedures, documentation. 3) Sink or Swim mentality and no available training or docs for training 4) Unknown/Vague Expectations with no guidelines to measure personal performance 5) Internal Political Tension 6) Due to # 1-thru-5 above causes constant stress over job security. Pass on employment here if you can! I am one of many who have been extended this critical and very true advice! Ethics goes right out the window here, whether you are planning a long term commitment or a shorter one, you will be treated as if you have one foot out the door. Probably for a good reason, they have left that foot out there for you! If you must take the job and I hope you do not, you should absolutely continue your job search as they have no loyalty to you and seem to be OK with this modus operandi. If you are a rock-star you threaten someone working there; if you are not, then you are an unnecessary burden (on the budget or someones' time). In what I have witnessed there seems to be a no win situation except whatever serves their need at the time. There is no feeling of job security, this is NOT a grudge but the simple truth.

Advice to Management

1) Implement a structured training program for employees, for new and veteran employees. 2) Create documentation that is up-to-date and thus relevant. 3) Create a system for employee recognition and accomplishments. 4) Start a company wide meeting where #3 above can be presented and company road map discussed. 5) Implement an employee suggestion box that can be anonymous, if so desired, for improving the workplace atmosphere. 6) Add criteria and expectations as a guide for personal performance.

    Pros

    Great people overall. Senior management has made very positive changes with limited resources.

    Cons

    ...but, vacant and unsupportive owners do not support the company.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the changes and hope for new ownership some day!

    Pros

    There are a few good people here that if they were elsewhere could excel.

    Cons

    The root of most of the issues is senior management and the complete inability to have any kind of plan or understanding of how to run a technical organization. I believe the biggest issue is the COO which does not belong in that position and has no business running the company. Unfortunately when you have problems at that level , there is no chance of success since the problem never goes away. I don't understand why the owners have not gotten rid of the COO and several others by now.

    Advice to Management

    Replace the dead weight and you could have potential success. The only way any success is possible is to bring in new upper management and start from the top. Otherwise, this company will eventually will cost to much to continue down this path.
