    I worked at Early Warning Services as a contractor (Less than a year)


    Very beautiful facility with great accommodations for their employees. Everyday a different food truck stops on site to give people lunch options. There is also a concierge on site to take care of miscellaneous needs (dry cleaning, food ordering, etc). Marketing does a great job with the signage around the building highlighting the companies principles. It gives a sense that there is a focus on culture from upper management. The attire ranges from business casual to pretty casual. Security is taken very seriously and that helps make it people feel safeguarded.


    After 2 and 1/2 weeks with the company, Early Warning decided to end my contract because they received feedback that I disinterested in the job. There's two sides to every story --- Here's Mine! Originally when I applied through a recruiter, the Agile Lead role was positioned as a full-time job. This was important to me because I just moved out from the East Coast after working at a former employer for 8 years. After the interview was completed and I was called back for the job, I was told by the agency that they wanted to hire me but on a contract-to-hire basis. I took the job under the premise that I would be able to prove my worth. However, based on how things went in those 2 weeks, I feel that there was a distrust in me from the beginning there was no intention to ever bring me on full-time. On my first day, my manager (who I interviewed with) informed me that she was going on vacation for two weeks and that I was being assigned to 2 teams to shadow their Project Managers/Business Analyst. I also found out that the Agile Lead Role that I was hired for hadn't fully been defined yet and there wasn't an alignment in the business to slide me into a team to perform the duties. Therefore in my first week I spent time with both of the "guides". I discussed my background and how I was hired (confusion behind contract/full-time) thinking that I was building rapport with my new co-workers. However, I made it clear that I was interested in soaking up the culture and learning the terminologies in order to excel in my new career. Since contractors do not receive orientation or introduction into the business, I asked the guides if I could obtain any documentation would help me get a greater knowledge of the business. It was suggested that I get an understanding of the company through the Early Warning Website. I found it strange that an IT department had no Visio diagrams or flow chart documents that would help me get this better understanding so I could be immediately effective. I attended daily status update meetings and the best way I can describe the discussions among the co-workers are with the following adjectives: passive-aggressive, snide, and snippy. It seems like there was a great divide between departments who depended on each other to complete work. The Project Managers looked very stressed while facilitating their meeting. The excuse I was given was that the company was full of people with "strong personalities". I found it ironic that a company known for Security was full of insecure people. A week in, I was told that there was a change in the budget and I was no longer going to be receiving a team. Instead I was going to take on a existing team and continue shadowing the current Business Analyst of that team. I was also told that I no longer has to attend the meetings of the Project Manager that I was shadowing. I also observed that although I was hired into an Agile title, there seemed to be a disconnect between management and departments about the adoption of Agile ideology into teams that were used to waterfall methodology. This caused great confusion for me because it seemed to put me in an awkward position with my counterparts who were against what I was hired to do. Instead of seeing my ideas as suggestions for continuous delivery, it may have been taken as me coming in being "too vocal". When my manager came back from vacation, she sat in one daily meeting I attended and our next meeting together was when she informed me that my contract was terminated. So all in all I had two meetings with her, a tour of the building and an eventual escorting out of the building. I have not experience anything like this in my professional career. The culture of this company is absolutely terrible. I had a feeling in my gut for the past 2 weeks that this wasn't the best fit and I even found myself going to Glassdoor to compare my experience to other writers. What has been written about this company has been deadly accurate and I should have went with my intuition from the moment they showed me they didn't trust bringing me in as a full-timer.

    Advice to Management

    If you truly believe in your values, its imperative that you find the people in your organization who are sabotaging your culture. Because of poor management and communication, you have put your faith in people who want to continue to do things the way they always have been done and are threatened by change. You have a toxic environment that is full of people who don't respect each other, are passive aggressive, and would rather smile in your face and talk behind your back as opposed to giving open and honest feedback so that improvements can be made. When you have teams who don't believe in demoing there work or having retrospectives to inspect and adapt themselves, you are going to create a lot of technical debt and a poor IT culture.
