Pros

They renovated the toilets this year, the coffee is free. Despite the crappy company there are some nice people there.

Cons

- culture of blame rather than encourage
- MICROMANAGEMENT
- follows the corporate line of a parent company that made layoffs "due to the economy" at a time when the parent company made a profit of hundreds of millions of dollars
- the total absense of mutual respect between employees
- split departments--part in the US, part in Canada--means things are misunderstood and mishandled all the time
- managers who have never even met their employees
- regular reorganizations
- too many directors and VPs most of whom are too self-centred and high on their own selves to even notice others are in the room--say hello to your people if you want them to think you are human!
- factionalization of the company into competing units means there is never a sense of common accomplishment
- use of shareware tools

Advice to Management

Respect your employees and maybe they will start respecting each other as well. The culture of fear you cultivate is one that makes people hate the company.
Stop reorganizing the company every six months and actually try to make something work rather than giving up before it has had a chance.

    Pros

    The customer base who are mainly in the defense industry who help design training systems for our troops, ultimately saving lives.

    Cons

    Unrealistic and unfair goals and quotas based mainly on the personal relationship between management and employees. Upper management is inexperienced and is not qualified to make decisions which affect the direction of the company. Making promises to customers which have not been kept for several years.

    Advice to Management

    Concentrate on executing on roadmaps. Instead of finding escape goats each quarter, look at your own performance. Are you really qualified for your job?

    Pros

    Great teams. Interesting work/products. Since teams are small, opportunity to work on the full stack.

    Cons

    Technology lags behind. Vast legacy support that eats up large portion of development time. Very low compensation.
