Former Employee - Software Test Engineer I  in  Eagan, MN
Former Employee - Software Test Engineer I in Eagan, MN

I worked at Thomson West

Pros

Excellent benefits package, talented developers, professional environment, attempting to go agile on many of the technology projects (aka more natural work approach)

Cons

Stressful experience working with incompetent testing manager who did not have any respect whatsoever from the development manager or project champion....none of the above had a grasp on the true scope of a data migration project, and therefore were not able to effectively communicate to their direct reports manageable expectations.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Time management of direct reports got out of hand....tracking people's time down to the 2 hr level of granularity backfired on project progress.
