    I have been working at Mxi Technologies full-time

    Pros

    Appears moving toward growth mode and addition of new hire provide fresh and new views. Continue working toward to support remote working. It is a positive environment for junior to gain experience.

    Cons

    Certain departments have not yet changed and remains behavior same way before. Fundamental problem, slow to change still exists. Agile approach is development practice and does not correct management practice.

    Advice to Management

    Leverage recent acquisition to make significant senior management changes. Market is changing much faster pace than the organization is able to change or adjust.

    Pros

    They have beer in house to wash away the pain.
    Try to have events that help boost morale every month.
    Given some freedom to research ideas.

    Cons

    poor management skills as they are just promoted developers.
    lack of direction for the company.
    understaffed resulting in developers being over worked without stopping.
    knowledge loss is an issue and results in wasted time and functions not working as intended. In addition, if key players leave the product would suffer.

    I worked at Mxi Technologies full-time

    Pros

    R&D Department was a friendly and cooperative environment.
    Great place to try out different roles, and you can take on as much responsibility as you desire

    Cons

    Change is slow-going (ideas take about 4 years to percolate into the organization)
    Feedback cycles with customers is also in the "years" range, rather than "days" or "months" desired for producing useful software / happy customers.

    Pros

    Every good work environment, good work-life balance. There are many social events and some little bonus like free food and fruits.

    I worked at Mxi Technologies full-time

    Pros

    This industry and company is rich in resources, offers a lot of travelling and good training resources to get started.

    Cons

    Abrasive upper management, if you're on a different shift than your supervisor, it may be months before you reconnect.
    shifts are based on seniority and you will have to take a bad shift for months at a time.
    employees in some departments LOVE to gossip (above average from my experience)

    Advice to Management

    listen to your employees, they are your biggest asset.

    Pros

    A great, true Agile development environment. No matter your role, you're integral to the success, or failure, of your squad.

    The salary offered was better than I expected.

    People & Culture (HR) programs are good.

    Cons

    Agile environment can be taxing (no down time after a release).

    The company's benefits plan is pretty standard. An increase to the RRSP matching amount would help to attract more talent.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up.

    Technology stack is getting dated and very tight to Oracle.
