    I worked at CNL Software full-time

    Pros

    Pay rate is above average, and if you're local the commute is ok. The business is in a very limited market, so its job security is assured if you can 'Hack it' to quote our CEO.

    Cons

    Stress is off the charts as unreasonable demands flow through this business. I don't entirely know how we stay in business, as the stack of unfinished work increases, and resources are stretched thinner and thinner.

    The offices are awful, and benefits are non existent.

    No one at the company knows how the whole product works entirely, and in engineering our key knowledge holders have all moved on, so we're often stuck trying to find a needle in a haystack when a problem arises.

    Advice to Management

    Give people the space to do what you ask, stop asking for every hour to be 200% effective. We cant bend time and space, and apparently neither can you.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at CNL Software.

    Interview

    It was advertised as the two step process listed here, which is obviously a false listing from the company itself. The reality was it was a stress test, a sales pitch for the company, and how willing are you to over-commit for an above average salary in the area.

    They didn't care about experience or technical knowledge, I surmise because I wasnt asked any relevant questions in this area, before after a full overview of the product, I was marched in front of the CEO who was pre-occupied with what I thought of the product and his 'vision' for attacking the competition, and asking how i could contribute to this.
