    I worked at Mark Group

    Pros

    Worked with some great people who were really keen to take the business forward and deliver good customer service to internal and external customers.

    Cons

    The business was wrestling with the weight of some serious technical debt in both legacy architecture and database platforms. (Firebird DB!) which posed some interesting challenges for the BI Department

    Advice to Management

    SQL Server or Oracle, even MySQL, would be more supportable and extensible. It wouldn't be wise to have a single developer running a core system single-handedly from a freeware database platform.
