    You have to drink the Kool Aid if you want to thrive here.

    I worked at Macktez full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Cool progressive environment where work life balance is strongly encouraged and policies are in place to allow for it. Very cool co workers.

    Cons

    You'll spend more time documenting every breath you take than actually working. Or at least that's what they want you to do. Documentation is important but this place takes it unnecessarily far - and the clients get billed handsomely for it too. In any case, their Way of Doing Things is really a huge oversell and I'm surprised that they get away with it. Benefits are somewhat arbitrary - with some new hires getting more and some less - of the fundamental stuff like health insurance. Turnover is more than most places and pay is less than industry standard.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    This company and those that run it are just a bit too pleased with themselves and it shows. A little humility would be nice though they don't seem to be for lack of clients.

    Management is narcissistic and duplicitous.

    I worked at Macktez as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    They give you a computer and swiss army knife when you work there. You might get to meet some interesting clients, although this perk is fading fast. They usually have food in the office.

    Cons

    Truly ridiculous culture insisted upon by management but not followed by management. Unscrupulous billing practices. Lack of quality control and no safety concerns for employees. Compensation is laughable, raises even more so. Beware of promises unkept.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Practice what you preach even 5% of the time. Also, running pornography sites using employees creates a very strange atmosphere, considering it's a tech shop.

    Doesn't Recommend
