Pros

Developers will work like dogs for you

Cons

Upper management has absolutely no technical competence whatsoever. They are absolutely paranoid, schizophrenic and bipolar. They constantly complain about how miserable their lives are and take it out on their employees.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Treat your CEO with more respect.

    Pros

    Some very smart people, quiet office usually, very friendly employees. Office with windows and large desks. Located near a mall with plenty of restaurants and shopping while on lunch break.

    Cons

    Owner frequently sends emails degrading employees. Asked to work on the weekends frequently around 4:30 on Friday afternoons. In fact a lot of people put in 10 to 12 hour days regularly. Code reviews are a joke, someone stands over your shoulder to review the code before you check it in. Very little transparency about what is going on with the company. Expected to take laptop home every night and on the weekends.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to have a smoother process to reach out to people, name tags on desks wouldnt hurt. Asking someone to work on the weekends without advance notice, because a project manager wants a feature is not fair, hire more developers if you have that much work. Morale is at an all time low, the CEO doesn't even send an email wishing everyone a merry Christmas, he just complains he doesn't get enough time off. He thinks every one slacking off except for himself.
