    Pros

    It's not terribly taxing to work for a company that seems to have no expectation of ever finding its market, much less developing or delivering functioning software to serve a market if they found one.

    Cons

    Owners and management seem to have no idea that business in the US operates according to different principles than the various African nations from which they originate. Outsourced development team in Czech Republic is led by friends of CEO, and cannot deliver functioning software at all, much less on time and with any sort of documentation. CEO is completely unwilling to ditch these people. Company has repeatedly failed to pay employees. Employees are offered lip-service about how things are going to pick up and get better, while at the same time executives constantly fly to various African nations to supposedly convince investors to put more money in. The few functioning parts of the product are best suited to be marketed/sold to Jr. High/High School markets, yet management and sales continually insist on trying to direct-sell bulk licensing to Higher-Ed institutions. Employees are hired first, then asked on their first day of employment if they happen to have a computer they could bring in to perform their work. In some cases, employees worked for the company for well over a year without company-provided equipment. Several members of management were openly hostile toward employees who pointed out the obvious deficiencies in the business plan and operations.

    Advice to Management

    If you're honestly trying to develop and release software, start acting like it. Also, pay your former employees before trying to hire new ones.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at OSDC in June 2016.

    Interview

    Couple phone interviews. The first one was just asking my background. The second one is more related to algorithms. However, I dont think the seconed interviewer understand his question, it juz like someone searched for a tech question online randomly and then ask you the answer. In addition, most of the questions were not relate to positon requirements.
