good benefits, competitive salary, able to move up if you work hard

Assign projects wisely (no more than 3 at one time), recommend no more than 3 on sites visits per week

    Pros

    The technical team is awesome. Several business folk were really good to work with too.

    Cons

    This is a technical company that has no idea how to run a technical project. They don't want to hear any feedback regarding technical dependencies of the various pieces of the project, or really any feedback at all for that matter. The business makes decisions without any communication with the technical teams, but still expects the technical team to implement whimsical changes on the fly (in production no less). The project managers are the worst I have ever worked with and are leading the projects into disaster. There is no way this place will ever produce viable software. They are an analytics company, their business revolves around data and reporting of data, but the business stakeholders have no respect at all for the importance of their database architecture and the technical complexity of the things they are asking for. The technical team is awesome. Several business folk were really good to work with too but the people running the projects make it impossible to work here since you know the projects are bound to fail.

    Advice to Management

    Open communication channels with the technical side. They want to architect solid solutions, you have to give them the tools to do so.
