    Pros

    The team I am on has provided me a lot of opportunities to learn and grow. There is free* lunch served every day. (* you get taxed for it, and currently there is not much choice. This is planned to change in the next year.)

    Cons

    Little to no schedule or work from home flexibility. Developers are not consulted before decisions are made, but always held responsible for the consequences. Would rather pay millions of dollars per year in licensing fees to replace the current system with a system that is not equivalent instead of investing a fraction of it to make the current system better. Poor communication between groups, from top to bottom and side to side. No development methodology. No change management control. No planning, only reacting. Free for all, chaotic, everything is broken panic mode mentality.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You hire software engineers for lots of money a year. If they are really worth the money you are paying them, listen to them when they warn you about things. Engineers know more about how the company is operating than anyone higher up since they are the ones that are writing and maintaining the code that does it. Don't make assumptions. Do your homework when making big changes to the company. Consult technical people before mandating technical changes. Don't listen to salespeople for CRM companies promising you the moon, then force ridiculous and unrealistic commitments on the engineers you ignored. Remember that your engineers are real people with real feelings and real lives. Don't treat them like cattle, shuffling them as you wish. Don't treat them like machines, that just churn out stuff. Developers can make or break your entire organization. Remember that.
