    Positive Outlook

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

    Pros

    A lot of smart people work there, the company is growing (then and now in 2016). The leadership knows how to survive an economic downturn with minimal casualties.

    Cons

    The leadership has forgotten why they started the company, what they wanted for the company culture and traded it in for the lust of money. What once acted and felt like a family business outgrew itself and now functions like a heartless corporation.

    Advice to Management

    Remember your roots and what you wanted to build when you started this business. Are you doing really cool work? Is it a fun place to be? How do this year's priorities compare to those of when you first began? Do you like what you see?

    I worked at Magenic Technologies full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Strong emphasis on training graduates, introducing them to professional software development and best practices. Great network of mentors and an excellent environment to learn, if you're driven and curious

    Cons

    Low mobility. Also, it's a consulting gig, so the projects you end up on might not all be smooth sailing. Some are better managed than others, some have better architecture than others. The upshot of that is that you should only be on each project for a relatively short time (though not always as short as you'd like)

    Advice to Management

    Rotate people through problematic projects and reward diligence, commitment, and excellence appropriately. The time-based lottery system for advancement just doesn't make sense

    Pros

    Right place for high energy driven consultants. Very technical QA group. Ahead in technology than any of the QA competitors

    Cons

    It's consulting, you have to keep studying. Your skill sets have to be current to be part of the QA group. It is hardwork.

    I worked at Magenic Technologies full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Very smart people, very technical in their specialties. Generally very supportive and friendly. High professional standards. Salaries are competitive and attention was given to career path and advancement. Some opportunity for training. Regional model means no full time travel although perhaps long commutes in certain areas

    Cons

    Management can be blaming, especially at PM levels and up. Will shrink workforce if numbers aren't good enough. Regional Managers can be constrained by upper management

    Advice to Management

    More competitive salaries for top 10 people. More latitude to regional managers. More dedication to employees even if short term numbers aren't ideal.
