    Pros

    ironically, right before AMCAD went down in jun 2014, the board hired good executives. Around apr, may of 2014 employee confidence in the new CEO and CTO had started to get better.

    Cons

    no work life balance, unrealistic deadlines and over promised deliverables sapped employee morale.

    Advice to Management

    care about employees

    Pros

    Good technology stack, great people, cutting edge products

    Cons

    Corporate politics, too much work load

    Advice to Management

    I don't think the company is still running. The owner sold it and there was a massive lay off.

    I worked at AMCAD full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good teamwork allowed you to work well with others and pick up tools of the trade. Solid benefits package.

    Cons

    Company overbooked on sales and did not provide enough resources to follow through on contracts which caused business to implode.

    Advice to Management

    Don't sign contracts you can't follow through on. Assign more leadership to department heads to get work done
