    Pros

    McFadyen is a very employee friendly company which has been in the eCommerce arena for over 20 years. One of the best things about this company is that all the people around you are seasoned A+ professionals which you'd love working with. The management is easily accessible and supportive. This is very flexible company and doesn't impose any rules/restrictions upon you and you feel very comfortable working here.

    Cons

    None that I can think of.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work and thanks for hiring me.

    I worked at McFadyen Solutions full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Open office at headquarters keeps local teams working together. Smart, experienced team leads and analysts. Most employees very skilled.

    Cons

    Poor communication with management and employees. Too many people working on multiple projects, not always where most needed.

    Advice to Management

    Keep communication open with all your employees and don't always rely on your leftenants to get the story right.

    I have been working at McFadyen Solutions full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    McFadyen works very hard to provide an awesome work environment for its people. They also strive to be a reliable employer. They put their employees first. When other employers lay off in droves, McFadyen hangs on, relying on cash they have consistently put away for the inevitable economic recession. The culture is very easygoing. The people and management are excellent. It's technically challenging but company hires only the smartest in the industry who loves these challenges so the job satisfaction rate is very high. Some companies say they encourage work-life balance, but McFadyen Solutions lives it. Of course there are long working hours during the crunch time but that's everywhere isn't it? Mcfadyen Solutions has built an incredibly special culture that is down to earth, collegial, supportive, intellectually stimulating, and just out right fun. I absolutely love coming to work here and truly miss the office and our people when I'm away. That's a rarity and something I cherish each day

    Cons

    Yes, you'll have to average more than 50 hours a week. It varies from Project to Project, across managers and stage the projects are in. But most managers will try to be as accommodating as possible for personal commitments, vacation days, making sure you have a life outside of work and that you don't burn out.

    Advice to Management

    Overall extremely happy, senior leadership is truly phenomenal at this company. The way management encourages employees for training and certifications with predetermined bonuses and raises, is commendable. However, management should increase the bench strength and reduce the hiring cycle.

    Small company with exciting small contracts that will never enter the big league

    Pros

    If you want to learn ATG (thats the technology they focus on). If you want to fight fires and learn a lot in the process.

    Cons

    The company never grows. Its been stuck at the same size for the last 10 years. Other companies in the same category have gone through booms, gained massive contracts, increased head count, etc. However McFadyen has been stuck at the same size for the last 10 years.

    Advice to Management

    Try to have a longer term vision, and if its there then its a really bad one. The company is completely stagnant. Focus on quality and project management rather than being a code shop. I'm sure the management already knows this (its been 10 years of the same old same old after all) however they lack the capabilities to grow.
