    I worked at PNI Digital Media full-time

    Pros

    friendly people. nice office. working with big clients.

    Cons

    the domain is boring - printing. yeah...printing. how interesting can that be??
    management is horrible. long hours because the code is a mess.
    Code is a mess. no conventions. there are couple of experts that knows it all - good example what happens when the code is horrible, you need "experts" (people who wrote the mess) to figure it out.
    They post job posting with the latest and greatest - TDD, Domain driven design, IOC and even ORM but it's a lie. you are never going to use those 'sexy' technologies. nobody knows what is ORM over there.

    Advice to Management

    get rid of all those 'experts' that for job security made a mess in the code so only they can understand it.

    Pros

    - Lots of hard working and inspiring employees at PNI
    - Trying to improve
    - Agile and Leadership Training

    Cons

    - Management is a mess with direct problems to employees
    - Monolithic fragile code base with many resources on maintaining and repairing
    - Arrogance in management and various problems

    Advice to Management

    I think Management has come a long way since 2013. Continue to build/improve trust for employees and remove the culture gap between employees and management.
