Blue Acorn has changed a lot since I came on board three years ago. Too many short sighted decisions from upper management, ill - managed rapid growth motivated by greed (followed by big layoff by the way), and basically hiring people off the street. There is a *severe* lack of talent and everybody is frustrated by it, but no one is paying enough to attract more talent. Way too many people get by by just showing up at their desk 9-5, not doing anything, and logging 40 hours to general overhead. (Our company is based around billable hours and nobody likes it.) For the record, I think our CEO is great, but he is surrounded by incompetence and doesn't know it.
The project managers are hired by what seems like a process of picking names out of a hat. They have no expertise, they don't know what development is, and they certainly can't manage a client relationship. Well, at least the vast majority of them fit into this category. Now we are in the phase of coming up with new titles for these people to see if that makes them better at client relationships.
If you are a developer, run away. If you lack any experience or skills but want to cut a decent paycheck, and don't mind being overworked, apply for a project management position.
