    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Fanatics

    Pros

    Opportunity to work with latest technology! Sports company!

    Cons

    Too much CIO turnover - caused alot of other technology turnover. Constantly hiring on top of the folks that have built the company.

    Advice to Management

    They finally hired a great CTO and put him in charge. Keep MM running the technology department.

    I have been working at Fanatics full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Very casual, friendly environment. CEO Doug Mack seems pretty good at his job. Nice to be working in sports. Plenty of gallows humor and camaraderie among the condemned!

    Cons

    Ruthless director who lacks interpersonal skills. No career path. Role not clearly defined and constantly changing. Overworked. Underpaid. No sense of being valued as a person. Very obvious that our director views entire team as pawns in his dog-eat-dog game with his peers. Minimal benefits. In terms of the code base, its a complete free for all. Very little documentation. Lots of poorly written, poorly maintained software....

    Advice to Management

    Read a book about how to be a manager because you haven't got a clue. You could also use a course on interpersonal skills and how to motivate your team.
