I worked at Blue River Information Technology full-time (More than a year)
The only pro to working here would be if it was the only job option you had.
* Family owned business, built on family drama * The remaining owner is a textbook megalomaniac that instead of thanking his team, or calling anybody individually at any point, would have 1-2 company wide calls a year, and it was to tell everybody "I pay for your time, so dont complain about what we assign you or how much you work." - that was verbatim what he said * no cohesiveness. no collective knowledge. no central repository of anything. they'd tried 3 different systems of this while i was there and nothing was stuck with * no management/leadership presence at all, unless its to berate you on a company wide phone call that should have been a one on one if somebody had a problem * company sells vaporware. equivalence of throwing things into a visio and saying "we have customers who love this!" when in reality the company had never once done it and we just hope we can pull it off in the event somebody actually does want it * schedules are a nightmare. dont do this if you have kids, a wife, or hope to have your own life. because remember, HE PAYS FOR YOUR TIME! * sales people salaries were cut 100% and forced to operate off of commission alone - which would be fine except for.. * the company owes so much money to so many people, that there's no way to get anything done. demo hardware? yea right. better hope you sell the customer so hard that they just cut a PO. * the number of lawsuits to employees was almost 1:1. google this company name and "lawsuit" or "filed" and see for yourself * shady business dealings, basically kicking the debt can down the road. company relies on the next unsold deal to help pay for the last 3 sale people's commissions or engineer's payrolls. * no such thing as training. no time for it, anyway! * any partnerships this company still has are highlighted and red boxes drawn around them. on everybody's radar for not being a safe/trustworthy partner, which is 100% the result of the ownership. his employees had never done anything to wrong the company. * CEO's temper can turn on a dime into him immaturely screaming/insulting his employees. its the most insane thing ive ever seen. there's not enough room to fill in all of the negatives of this company. the pay is well below market average, the hours are WAY above market average, and the CEO apparently has no idea what he's doing but he'll be quick to take that out on everybody around him.
Advice to Management
sell the company to somebody while it's still worth anything. this ship is on fire, taking fire, and sinking fast.
