Rapidly fading

Senior Software Engineer (Current Employee)
San Mateo, CA

I have been working at SeaChange full-time for more than 3 years

ProsGet to work with and even implement some cool technology. There are some very good, bright people working at SeaChange.

ConsExtremely poor communication across the corporation.
Severe lack of accountability, especially among salesmen.
Very broken culture.
No sense of strategic direction.
Management that views employees as interchangeable parts to be used and discarded.
No recognition or reward for hard work.

Advice to Senior ManagementPick a direction for the company. Decide if the company is simply going to work project by project, or try to make more of a shrink wrap product. Even if the direction turns out not to be the best direction, it will be better than waffling and spinning around as the company is doing now. Require Engineering and Finance approval of all contracts before signing. Communicate at least monthly with the rank and file.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
