Pros

Pay well, nice location, talented employees, good IT systems and web access, goal driven, bonus plan, good benefits, travel compensation

Fragmented communication, poorly managed, require expense reimbursement and are very particular on requirements and timing to be reimbursed, long and grueling work hours with limited time off

Get managers that understand the business and treat their employee right with timely performance feedback and coaching. Reduce management span so that managers can spend more time with employees.

    Pros

    The pay is somewhat competitive. The building is located in a nice area of Camarillo. The lower management are very helpful and passionate about their jobs. The benefits are good.

    Cons

    Management looks the other way when the client or subcontractor bullies employees. Complaints are rarely reviewed and action doesn't really get taken. The client has full control over all direction, resources, processes, and participants. Developers work on multiple projects but rarely together. Communication is poor. Very little time is spent developing applications. Most time is spent towards participating in meetings, sometimes about other meetings. People are put into positions they are not qualified for. There is favoritism with specific employees. There are multiple unreasonable constraints on development, such as performing development against databases that are behind numerous firewalls, causing development to take at least 10 times the norm. The tools are poor. Technology is about 5 years behind the curve.

    Advice to Management

    Seek other clients. Drop the subcontractor. Start taking a more aggressive stance on producing applications instead of producing documents about documents about the product. Invest in better tools. Seek technical advice from professionals instead of trying to solve issues outside of your domain of expertise.
