I have been working at Image Technical Services full-time (Less than a year)
As one of the software developers and being here for about a year, I can say that everyone on this team is really a joy to work with, including the manager of the development department. The lead web developer and department manager both really know their stuff so there's never a feeling of frustration with technical decisions as can happen in some work places.
I have yet to see any evidence of in-office politics which is very refreshing. There aren't any prima donna types here so the team "gel's" pretty nicely.
The products and services that are built use the latest in the .NET (ASP.NET) technologies which makes it very fun to work with since we're not working with any out-dated technologies. The ALM approach is of an "Agile" type but it's not in the dogmatic or marketing way. It's what works for us which speaks to the practicality of the manager (in my opinion).
The job does demand performance since this is a small company with some of the limits that small companies face, which include efficiency of time and money.
Overall, a positive experience and a place I would recommend.
If I were to pick out a con, for me it would be lack of an option to work remotely. While I definitely can appreciate the benefits of working in-person with the team, I still prefer working remotely with an occasional in-office visit or team outing. I've seen that happen successfully but it takes a commitment from the company to allow for that type of culture.
Advice to Management
This piece of advice is probably going to reveal who left this review, but what the heck...
We need to switch our ORM to Entity-Framework. 1998 called and they want their hand-crafted SQL back (I'm totally kidding here). :-)
In all seriousness, I have no advice to give.
I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Image Technical Services (Winter Garden, FL) in March 2010.
Very professional. They had questions prepared in advance. Very personable and positive. After the first interview I was asked to come in for an addtional interview with the owner. They didn't waist time. I was called later that day and emailed an offer letter with all the information I needed to make my decision. I started two days later.
