P M (Current Employee) – Atlanta, GA – November 25, 2016
New to the company. Overall ok but not employee friendly. A lot of travel with long hours; when not on the road in the office performing random duties based on need. Learn about the system some team members are willing to help more than others. Some managers are micromanagers; they tend to pick their favorite over qualified individuals; tend not to be fair across the board giving special benefits to some and not others. Hardest part of job is pleasing many personalities. Most enjoyable is I just like what I do, no matter the company.
not employee friendly; no remote options; no flextime;
Programmer (Former Employee) – Dunwoody GA – September 3, 2014
SEDC is showing growing pains while migrating off COBOL. The 65 million lines of COBOL code consists of COBOL 1 structured logic with no published standards. No real team environment exists as all programmers work individually on work orders without the benefit of a project plan or a true understanding of the scope of the change. The general attitude is to get it done any way you can as quickly as you can without consideration of sound programming practices or balance of life/work. Take this job at your own peril.
Design (Former Employee) – Tucker – March 25, 2013
I am not a disgruntled employee. The fact is, SEDC was good to me, but that is not necessarily the typical experience. If you really want to know more about a company (any company) find someone through Linkedin or Facebook and engage them. At SEDC, the employees are the best resource and the 401K contributions are exceptional. The physical office is great and while traffic is always an issue in Atlanta, SEDC is located in a particularly congested area. If your unemployed, SEDC may be a option to consider. If you are currently employed, do your homework before you give notice.
Hire-A-Youth Intern (Former Employee) – San Diego, CA – November 16, 2011
This internship was mainly about learning what the company had to offer its community. SEDC stands for Southeastern Economic Development Corporation. I learned about the development of the Market Creek Plaza; and got involved in feeding the homeless with a company called Embrace.
informative, good learning experience.
internship was only for a month, no budget to hire interns.
