Pros

There is a casual work environment, some really good people, a variety of interesting technical areas, and opportunity to travel. It is an opportunity to learn the distribution industry from the inside. The development teams are really invested in their work and have a strong sense of camaraderie.

Cons

There is little opportunity for advancement. The internal culture is often chaotic and includes minimal commitment to innovation and long-term technical planning. The wide variety of client-project obligations is hectic and stressful, sometimes overwhelming. Turnover among application developers and their direct leadership has been high, while turnover in senior management is virtually non-existent.

Advice to Management

Be more constructively involved in day-to-day operations and technical goals.
