I worked at Cedar Document Technologies full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

My salary was good. The company seems to be well managed and profitable. They pay 100% of the employee's medical insurance.

Cons

The software development group is not well managed. I received virtually no direction or feedback from my manager. The team is not very friendly either - I was never introduced to the other developers. Very little communication or collaboration.

The legacy applications are quite dated; 1 is still using Java 1.4. There is a fair amount of cruft in the code. There is also a lot of coupling. Most of the Java code I saw could not be unit tested. But then no one there claimed to be Agile.

I asked several times for documentation or preferable a wiki, but they don't exist. The attitude seems to be read the code to figure things out.

If you are a lone wolf, Cedar might be the right place for you.

As a bonus, the traffic can be a nightmare. Being across the street from Perimeter Mall might sound attractive, but dealing with it is not. (They do offer flex time).

Advice to Management

You are not a start up any more. Development does not need to run like one.

    Pros

    Very helpful and friendly work environment. They encouraged learning on my part and rewarded initiative. They were very welcoming and I felt like family right away. The work load they assigned me was reasonable and when I had questions they always were more the willing to help me out.

    Cons

    As an intern, there were times when I wasn't kept very busy all the time. Other than that, I had a very positive experience at CEDAR.
