    I have been working at Ascend Analytics full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good stable company, focused and friendly work environment. Within software development, there tends to be a definite emphasis on product features and analytics rather than on keeping up-to-date on technology, but that aspect has been improving lately. All the new software development is basically happening in Python and the legacy software is starting to be converted over. Company management tends to be highly top-down around assignments and schedules, but mostly takes a hands off attitude towards developers' own designs and implementation.

    Cons

    Windows-heavy shop, still lots of outdated tools and technology, and cumbersome IT/security environments.

    Advice to Management

    Allow more time for creative R&D, and streamline IT policies.

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Ascend Analytics (Boulder, CO) in September 2016.

    Interview

    I went in for an interview but the employee who interviewed me was very rude and sexist. He continually questioned my education and at one point said "I have a gender gap in this office and you're a woman...". He told me I would be making $15/hour but the office manager (the only woman in the office) told me before the interview that I would be making $25/hour. I highly recommend not working at this company.
