I worked at iMakeNews full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

A great company with lots of great people. The amount you can learn from others here is quite amazing.

Cons

Old software that constantly is held together by the people behind the scenes. It is unreal how many 'hacks' have to be done to sometimes make things work that should be able to be done with the software.

Advice to Management

Spend some time seeing what's involved on the back end. There is alot of work from both the client services team and dev/ops to keep the system running smoothly from the client's perspective. What the system lacks from a software perspective due to it's age forces CS, DEV and OPS to all have to work together to make up for it in manpower. Whether it's a hack in some template, a quick dev fix or Ops babysitting the system to make sure emails go out unblocked, and as fast as possible. There are a small group of people that do alot of heavy lifting to keeps things going and as seemless as possible to the client, that group of people is burning out fast.
