    Former Contractor, less than 1 year

    One bad apple (NSG group) should not spoil the whole bunch (Intel)

    Dec 7, 2015 - Web Developer (PHP/MySQL) in Folsom, CA

    CEO Approval

    Pros

    Large corporation with lots of growth opportunities for FTEs. Contractors will not benefit from any of the Intel perks. Flexible hours. The newer, remodeled areas offer a modern and comfortable work environment.

    Cons

    Contractors are not treated very well. Perhaps this is where the bad apple got tossed in: NSG Group (Non-Volatile Solutions Group). A very impersonal environment. I was never introduced to the team, even after several months of being there. Extremely standoffish. Tech believe it or not is very poor and outdated. Think printf('This is my code %s', $var); PHP code from 1998. Additionally staff didn't even know what a VIEW was for MySQL. The Scrum/Agile process was also not correct. Never have I ever groomed a backlog in the Daily Stand Up meeting. The DSU mtg also did not follow the traditional What did you do yesterday, what did you today and do you have any blockers? Every DSU included going over every task you were assigned in Jira. Spikes were added daily and .... well you get the idea.

    Pros

    The onboarding and training was incredibly thoughtful and detailed. Each step was communicated to me and I felt involved in how I was trained.

    Cons

    Something they already know, the consistent use of acronyms, but they are more than willing to give the detailed information when asked.
