Suggestions for improvement
- Don't let the good people leave.Make sure engineering has a road map, but don't try to set firm deadlines months ahead of time - estimating development time becomes less accurate the further into the future one attempts to predict.Make use of all that agile training we had (and stop letting people over-commit on "sprints"). This would go a long way towards getting accurate time estimates, too.Listen to your employees.Have true HR people
What I like about the company
Good experience in the backup/recovery portion of the IT field. Good work environment. If you’re a self-starter, quick, analytical thinker, you’ll succeed in support. There are some great people in support management that make you want to be better at your job, in the best way.
What I dislike about the company
Some days take their toll. (Stress!) Generally, if something needs done within the company, the senior support team gets it. This can lead to engineers being spread thin at times. The pay for the "little workers" is very unfair especially for the work they do. Hardly talk about compensation. Too many changes often, they have let go a bunch of good engineers due to business downsizing a.k.a sales numbers not being met.
