Small team culture is good, but as the grouping gets bigger, the culture gets worse.
Support from management
Inconsistent application of policies hampers this.
Again, this is very dependent on team.
Freedom to work independently
This depends on the team leader. Some try to micro-manage, others encourage independence.
The rumour mill is much better for information.
This depends on when you were originally hired. More recent hires are paid much more than existing employees.
Attitude towards older colleagues
Ageism doesn't seem to be a problem here.
Career paths are not clear. Professional development is best done on your own.
Overall compensation for your work
My compensation is substantially below that of many of my other teammates even though I have comparable experience.
Office / Work Environment
Temperature control is almost always a problem.
Time off is generous, but it's hard to use that time due to staffing issues.
I feel that it is stable for the next few years until the next phase of consolidation happens.
Programming can be quite challenging at times, but sometimes, the solutions are very simple.
Inclusive / Diverse
My team is quite diverse in many ways.
Suggestions for improvement
- All teams should have the same general operating procedures in effect. Communication should be more frequent and more substantive. People should be evaluated based on their contribution, not on whether they are well liked by the people in charge.
What I like about the company
I have learned a lot and grown as a developer. The team you work with can be the best thing or the worst thing about working here.
What I dislike about the company
Communication needs improvement. I understand when the answers are not known, but to not tell everyone that only increases anxiety. Involving more people in the decision making process would help with morale.
