Web Developer/QA Analyst, Chicago, IL - December 21, 2015
Commonly given incomplete specs on projects with tight turnarounds below competitive pay not much actual programming experience Cloak and Dagger company No outlined training program or progression within the company I feel the biggest problem at eShots is the management. Managers bully employees and can impose rules that aren't typical in a development environment. Managers seem more interested in covering their butts and making themselves look good for clients, and blaming employees when things go bad. They also have a tendency to use band aids to fix their products, and their innovation lacks at present. The worst problem is the pay, every employee there could be paid a little more for their highly cumbersome workload, and the fact that they ask you to do "client support" is the icing on the cake. Client support is when they throw you an iphone and you field calls from the products in the field. Good luck with that. I once religiously hovered over the phone for one weekend and a mistake was made. It felt as though the entire company came down on me and I was about to lose my job. My biggest problem was, I signed on to be a developer, not client support help desk.
