Technology kept changing rapidly
Full Stack Software Engineer (Current Employee) – New Orleans, LA – July 18, 2018
At Canal Barge Company, technology direction kept changing rapidly, and projects never get completed, instead they linger on year after year, then they get replaced with a shift and life.
At Canal Barge Company, I had a wonderful boss, he was innovating, very technical and he could code. My boss allowed me to grow and bring solutions to the table and at times allowed a proof of concept. He has another 5 years left at the company before he retires. There is no one to replace him at Canal Barge Company.
I had a work life balance, others I do not believe did. Although, that never stopped anyone from needing time off or getting support with others in the department. Everyone worked well together, it is a small team.
IT Staff not the strongest, developers do 1st level support, working after hours on call, Weak business processes. Technology decisions by non technical people.
