    I have been working at Dare full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Managers are friendly and the pay is good. I felt like I was listened to, but this didn't always translate into action.

    Cons

    I worked with an embedded team based at a clients offices, and the lack of support or interest was palpable. We were very much a team off on our own, and didn't really get help from head office.

    It didn't help that some of the team that was drafted in had obviously "overstated" their abilities and didn't have the skills they professed to have, and this hadn't been picked up at interview. They were found out eventually, but this made things extra difficult as we had to work around people.

    Some managers had more technical skill, but more often they were sales people with a bit of technical knowledge. This was OK in the main, but their focus was making sure we were getting enough money from the customer, rather than making sure the project was a success.

    Advice to Management
