Roller coaster in the dark without seat belts

Senior Software Engineer (Current Employee) Oakville, ON (Canada)

ProsCool technology, most of technical people are very competent; non technical people are very nice too, as long as they aren't managers.

ConsLack of direction, lack of clear communication between management and lower level employees. Managers don't seem to know what they're doing. You can feel a strong sense of distrust between the new "architects" and the solutions development teams. Apparently, it doesn't matter how good you are, the new architect will tell you what to do and how to do it. Micromanagement everywhere.

Advice to Senior ManagementVery difficult. Most of old "managers" were fired. The new CTO should open his mind and leave all the prejudices aside; please, try to understand the business and the technology behind before proposing new solutions.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
