Reviews

Company Culture

Small team culture is good, but as the grouping gets bigger, the culture gets worse.

Support from management

Inconsistent application of policies hampers this.

Teamwork

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.

Internal Communication

The rumour mill is much better for information.

Gender Equality

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 Development

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.

Work-Life Balance

Time off is generous, but it's hard to use that time due to staffing issues.

Job Security

I feel that it is stable for the next few years until the next phase of consolidation happens.

Challenging Work

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.
