Java and .NET Application Developer (Former Employee), Vermillion, SD – September 9, 2014
I moved out to South Dakota to begin my career in application development. While working at Eagle Creek, I learned a lot more then I did in College. Then they laid 10 people off at the same time. I enjoyed working there though. If I had to, I would do it again in a heartbeat.
Technical Recruiter (Current Employee), Eden Prairie, MN – September 9, 2014
This is a great company to work for and I like that they are keeping technical jobs in the US and bringing those jobs to North and South Dakota. I had an opportunity to learn a lot about technical recruiting from a great mentor.
Application Development Consultant (Current Employee), South Dakota – January 31, 2014
Pros: paid training, benefits, career advancement
Cons: project centers are in small towns
I've been with this company for close to 3 years working in one of the project centers in SD. I will have to say that this is one of the best companies I have ever worked for. Not only do they offer you extensive training on object oriented programming but they pay you for it! Then your career just falls into place. There is never a dull day and always – more... new projects to work on. Especially this past year with all of the company's growth. They are really involved in the communities in which they are located and are sure to have events planned to build team bonds. They have a set career path and from what i have experienced, do everything within their power to ensure your success. I started right out of college with a degree in Computer Science and was having difficulty finding a job with my limited experience. I am very grateful I found Eagle Creek. If you dont mind living in a small town, and want to get your career started in IT, I would highly recommend checking out Eagle Creek. – less
Java Application Development Consultant (Former Employee), Pierre, SD – March 26, 2013
Pros: extensive training for new people
Cons: low pay, poor management
Management often has unrealistic ideas about how the development cycle behaves, and will take contracts based on technology that no one there knows. This can often lead to bottle necking on projects, creating a large unused bench of developers. With this lay offs are common and happen once contact work gets slow. However EC does train its new people – more... in classes of 20 to 30 people which helps build friendships and team dynamics quickly. – less
Software Consultant (Former Employee), Valley City, ND – October 15, 2012
Pros: benefits, great co-workers
Cons: inconsistent management
I enjoyed working with my co-workers. They're helpful if it's anything you may have a question about if they have any knowledge concerning it. If they don't, they're always willing point you in the right direction to someone who can help. They had a change in management philosophy and the lack of communication between anyone above just your normal co-worker – more... was very, very limited. Your opinion isn't appreciated at all. – less
