Inexperienced Management and Lack of Vision
Starting out at WebstaurantStore, it was decided that I would be managed remotely by someone in a different, remove office. It became very obvious that my manager did not have any experience leading a developer before. Code reviews became more UX reviews, questions resulted in more confusion, and frequently, I was recommended to ask another developer rather than my manager.
During peer reviews, I pushed my manager to ask what the company is doing to grow in a already crowded e-commerce world. While there was great claim in the company growing, I felt like the steps were not nearly enough to compete, if for instance, another more established e-commerce competitor decided to move into the food service industry WebstaurantStore has a stranglehold over now.
WebstaurantStore is great if you have a passion for the food service industry, love to work on dated technology, and have little desire to go further than the position they hire you for.
