worst place ive ever worked
Senior software engineer (Former Employee) – cranberry – February 2, 2014
worked in IT department with title software engineer for over 2 years. management is terrible. from executive management down to direct team managers. ive witnessed software engineers get insulted, humiliated, screamed at in front of the entire floor, and on personal cell phones that specific managers would utilize to berate their engineers.
with CTO's and VP's turning a blind eye because their only interest was to try and deliver something promised that shouldnt have been promised to begin with inside of a deadline that is completely impossible to adhere to. And watched developers get terminated as a result because upper management ended up looking bad if the result wasnt as desired. which was never possible to begin with. but promises were made, so..
Engineers are siloed into projects and are instructed not to particpate in assisting other team members even in critical emergency situations to the point of completely cutting off team members from colaborating with one another to acheive goals of success for the entire company.
Mentality is not to help team members succeed but to bleed developers of everything for the success of management.
Terrible place for anyone's IT career. unless of course you're willing to sacrifice weekends and family to produce, and you are accepted into the right development clique.
aside from that, the developers that you worked with, if you were able to communicate with them, were great individuals.
