Great people and environment, work not exciting

Software Developer (Former Employee)
Boston, MA

Pros* Good pay and benefits
* Perks: billiard table, beer fridge, doughnut Friday
* Fun culture, easy-going people that generally work hard
* Smart developers, if a bit distracted sometimes

Cons* Full stack work is mostly scripting
* Technical debt rarely addressed
* Codebase needs a lot of work: not DRY, few standard objects or interfaces, much spaghetti

Advice to Senior ManagementFocus on the code. Start using Design Patterns and enforce standards. New features/promises to big contract clients have ravaged the codebase.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
