Approves of CEO

I have been working at Navis LLC full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Welcoming, friendly environment, developers are helping each other, a difficult domain to learn, takes a long time, but in return it is a big advantage to the people, more than technology your domain experience counts here, of course you should have sound Java background,
company reimburses outside training and education as long as it is business related,

Cons

Again domain is big and complex with different use cases, long time to learn, you need to be proactive,

Advice to Management

focus on "on the job training" more, working for container terminals, but never been to any, yet

    I worked at Navis LLC full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Very dominant in its industry (marine container terminal). Some super talented programmers (although many of them have left, the built a fantastic software foundation). Nice location in downtown Oakland

    Cons

    Company has been bought and sold several times, not sure it still has much direction to it

    Advice to Management

    Do you want to build a company or just make a quick buck?

    "Very frustrating with a lot of double standards shown towards employees."

    Pros

    Flexible work from home policy, great location to work, right on the Bart line. Challenging domain with some people with great experience and work ethic. High quality code.

    Cons

    There is a lot of friction and personality clash within the organization. Development is viewed as a cut throat business rather than as teamwork. Employees are expected to perform miracles with the old hardware they have to work with. Only five sick days a year.

    Advice to Management

    Treat all employees as having the potential to do the work, do not show favoritism to the "old timers". Foster an atmosphere of mutual respect and clamp down on the people creating an environment of hostility. This is very much demotivating everyone.
