Career Development

Career development is slow.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Management needs to inject outside, objective knowledge of technical excellence, best coding practices/techniques/patterns, etc. Internal code reviews/awards do improve code quality, but they are inherently incestuous.

What I like about the company

Good work/life balance.

What I dislike about the company

There is a lack of focus on technical excellence. People care about looking good to management, but not about improving their coding skills.
