    Pros

    The company works around the Java language. The company embraces open source technologies. Fun is part of company policy that seeks to balance work/life.

    Being agile - means no repeatable processes in place which causes employees to improvise based on what they learned from school and other companies.

    Advice to Management

    Improve software delivery practices so that it is repeatable that can be cascaded to new incoming members. Having consistency of guidelines and policy gives awareness among the team on how to do their job.
