      I have been working at AdGear Technologies full-time

      Pros

      * Flexible time, nobody closely watches your hours * The offices under construction will be very well located and spacious * Part of a larger company now, jobs are safe in the short/medium term * Very talented and skilled people work there * Travel opportunities to Mountain View, New York City if that's your thing * Technical presentations on Fridays to learn new things * 5 days/year that can be used...

      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.
