Nice place to work, Start-up Feel, Not crazy about the Off the Shelf Softwares

Pros

Wonderful place to work. Everyone is friendly and nice. You're expected to work hard and sometimes your hard work is appreciated and rewarded (atleast in NY it was). You'll have some really challenging tasks but it feels like a family with everyone working together. Absolutely wonderful group of people (again atleast in NY)

Cons

You're expected to work with CQ and SDL Tridion. They have their pluses and minuses but you're really working on these off the shelf packages, and you can't really work outside of them.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Have a proper research and development branch or allocate time for employees to do R&D. The folks really want to do something great but when you're focussed on clients all the time, you can't really think outside of the box.

    Pros

    People that I dealt with were mostly laid back with good senses of humor and genuinely interested in working. Everyone seemed to have a positive attitude and no one lost their temper. Compensation was also very decent.

    Cons

    The project I worked on was new and the team assembled to service the account was also entirely new. This created a disconnect in communication and expectations. I never saw a requirements doc and the project manager really didn't manage the team. We lacked deadlines, objectives and everything else necessary to come together for the client. The client sensed that and was aggressively rude because of it and went so far as to question the expertise of team members directly. They also went over all billed hours with a fine tooth comb. The company did not actively stand its ground or manage this client. Additionally, client facing documents were edited and sent by people who are not content experts. Although contractor pay was decent, payroll was not managed well. Failed to send W-2s/1099s out on time and even then did not have original W-9s. No HR to speak of. No direct deposit for contractors. The bottom line is that they made a lot of pie-in-the-sky promises, both to the client and employees that they can't possibly keep, given the level of disorganization.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You should assemble a team for for a new office BEFORE executing a new client contract and you should definitely have a PM in place before starting work for that client. Also, I don't know what is going on at HQ but you should never misplace tax documents and rely on the good will of current and former employees to then procure those documents!

    Pros

    You will get exposure to all of the CMSes out there - Tridion, CQ, Sitecore, and it is a paying job.

    Cons

    Very Low morale. Recently attended a management training in which they talked about the fact that turnover was 28% - that's like what you expect of bartenders, not IT staff! Why is it so low? Because people don't listen to you, it is exceedingly political, and good work is not rewarded. And, they are cheap, cheap, cheap. C-Level staff in particular is bullheaded and not nearly as smart as they think they are. Insane hours are the norm.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    As others have said, your upper management is highly cliquish. It doesn't matter what you know, only who you know. Listen to people who aren't the "Yes Men"
