How are career development opportunities at WideOrbit?

Pros

- Absolutely loved working with the people on my team - Competitive salary - Can work remotely

Cons

- If you tell managers about your problems, nothing will be done about them - Zero training for managers... if you promote a developer to a managerial position with no training, how can you expect them to perform well? They're totally different fields of study. - There's what appears to be a form of nepotism occurring within one of the orgs... friends promoted to positions where they're not actually performing those titles - No career growth due to nepotism issue - VP of certain org has no accountability and would rather blame issues on technology used and previous VP than blame himself - CEO has some sort of god complex... claimed all employees that weren't RIFed as the "chosen ones"

Advice to Management

Get a grip.

No career growth due to nepotism issue

What kind of career opportunities exist at WideOrbit?

Pros

It's a mid-sized company that doesn't have it all figured out so there are opportunities for individuals to grow. IF you are confident, leadership is accessible and willing to hear ideas/opinions and execute on them. You have to take charge of your destiny here - you can't wait around for it to land on your lap. These are PROs for people who don't need a lot of structure.

Cons

Company runs lean -especially non-revenue generating groups. Expect to show a decent business case for any expenditure in this environment. No performance bonus.

Advice to Management

Focus on understanding your key assets- your employees . Assess their performance and reward them more fairly across teams/org.
