Suggestions for improvement
- I think the company would do well to hire a diverse crew that includes not just older and younger men, but also female developers. Had there been female developers, I think the male chauvinism would have been less apparent and probably a better culture for creativity would have been established.
I like about the employer
The work was new to me at the time, which was about it as I soon discovered.
I dislike about the employer
The architecture was too tightly coupled to Ruby and completely managed by one person, a single point of failure. As a senior developer keen on doing a good job, I never received an overview of the architecture despite requesting it. The peer review process was not stringent enough. Personally, I felt like a temporary asset in the company, which, as it turns out, was the case when I was let go after building the requested interfaces in 7 months. Additionally, it appeared as though one senior member drove a lot of the design decisions without any collective input.
