    Pros

    The developers are great Mature processes Lots of time allocated to Engineering tasks (like refactor, features to help us, testing, etc).

    Cons

    -No retention program -Executive Orders with impossible deadlines for no good reason other that management whim (no customer driving said endeavor). -Roll back good practices to standardize with head office (why not improve their processes instead?) -Extremely difficult to hire good candidates with a very aggressive recruitment checklist

    Pros

    - So many talented people in the office. You can always get technical help from the others. If you a junior, this is a place that you can get knowledge from. - The physical environment is good: great office location; great open-office; great daily benefit (massage, kitchen etc.) - Flexible at work. Work from home is acceptable. - Sales and product delivery know what they are doing.

    Cons

    - Management is a joke. The company was growing fine in 2016 after the acquisition: people were passionate about what they do and opened to change; however, the management decided to micro-manage the office for some unknown reasons. There was some major loss in the engineering department and the management doesn't seem to care. After many attempts of changing the processes, they still don't understand that they are the problem. - The upper level of the company still thinks that the core business is just selling labours when it is already directly competing in the software industry. Meanwhile, they keep cutting the operation cost in the engineering department. - CEO has ZERO insights on software and has no idea how to manage the company besides saying good words in meetings. - A software company that is totally product driven: product team decides everything regardless of the technology. They do not understand the concept of technical debt, the idea of agile, and the value of software infrastructure. They just want the product works. - The above cons are causing a discouragement on engineering department and a potential long-term damage to the business.

    I worked at Radialpoint full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Prior to Appdirect acquiring them, it was rather disorganized and had an uncertain future with software that was becoming more and more antiquated. In the last two years they have become much more focused on making useful modern software. It's very nice to see. Great employee culture, nice place to work, not much stress.

    Cons

    On the engineering side, possibly over-encumbered by agile process adherence. Hard to move fast on easy projects.
