    Cons

    * Horrible codebase: messy, confusing, poorly documented, poorly tested, and it's not getting better with more hacks pushed to production weekly * Project are very poorly managed, the left hand doesn't know what the right hand is up to, a lot of work gets rushed because of arbitrary deadlines but eventually ends up being discarded, dependencies aren't understood or planned for * Very little to no manager feedback,...

    Advice to Management

    You were very lucky to have a few very talented employees join the company at the beginning. They got their friends to work there too, and they built you a gold mine. However, they are slowly but surely leaving and if you don't make this place enjoyable to work at again, you will soon be left with a pile of technical debt and no one who knows what to do with it.
