Make it better for temps and low level employees they are the ones who run your business and do the grunt work

    Pros

    Training program for out-of-college new hires is very thorough. Knowledge learned in the initial year is very useful. It is substantial in both quantity and quality.

    Cons

    Company is very fast paced, so there's no time to think through the design. It is more important at the company to get the results out rather than have a solid design - ie. create a hack, a short-term band-aid solution that will fix the issue at hand and get the product out the door, even if the hack will create huge amount of problems down the road. Also junior programmer's bonus is not decided based on the person's performance, but rather divided from the left overs in the bonus pool after the management and the senior developers gets their share. (Each department get a dedicated bonus pool)

    Advice to Management

    Please treat your junior programmers the same way as you would with senior ones in terms of opinion, design decisions and bonus. Do not treat us like another piece of resources.

    Pros

    Great benefits, free snack bar, nice view in the city from 29th fl.

    Cons

    The employees are loyal to the company but not to each other; they will through you under the bus in a New York minute! Hard work is not acknowledged.

    Advice to Management

    Show some respect for the people who work so hard for you.
