Pros

Decently interesting problems with a lot of data. Good culture of test driven development, frequent deployment. Some smart coworkers.

Cons

The only real way to get a raise is to leave. Some teams have problematic management and silo information. Office location is terrible being way out by the airport with very few food options.

Advice to Management

Pay a competitive salary and look into remote working since the office location is so bad.

    Pros

    The co-workers are great and for the most part all the developers are friendly and hang out outside of work. Unless you are grossly incompetent or don't show up to work, you have great job security. For the most part you work a 40 hour week.

    Cons

    The pay is on the low end of the spectrum.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your developers more!

    Pros

    The developer community at Rentrak is great. Everyone is good at what they do, almost everyone is great at it. The problems tend to be interesting and dealing with massive amounts of data forces everyone to think about performance and code quality all the time. For most teams 40 hour work weeks is the standard with very little deviation except in emergency situations.

    Cons

    The internal source code control and site deployment strategies are not at all what they should be. Sometimes upper management can start to micromanage things a bit too much. The coffee is terrible. The building is far away from everything interesting in Portland and the only food around is a lunch truck with a habit of being poisonous or expensive fast food.

    Advice to Management

    They need to figure out what their priorities are and stick by them. Being beholden to clients' whims can be profitable but is not good for developer morale.
