    I worked at Emphasys Software full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The vast majority are Good people to work with. Management is usually empathetic and supportive.

    Cons

    'Open Work Space' i.e., no cubicles / no privacy. LOW pay compared to everywhere else. One Middle Manager is a self described: Fascist, seriously. He refuses to follow Standard Software Development Methods, like proper Testing Plans, Regression Testing, Test Environments(!?!), having people other than the developer do additional testing should be the rule! Without proper testing, this leads to 'problems' which... he then blames on the developers when the clients' data is impacted from untested changes.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the fascist in the LLS / KWIK LOAN group - ASAP. Pay your people closer or equal to the average wages for their skills. Institute professional software development methods and procedures - this is a management issue, not a developer one.

    Pros

    The company adapts to the employees learning pace, which allows everyone to get their work done in the best possible way.

    Cons

    The bulk of work sometimes is too much compared to the compensation and benefits that the company has to offer

    Advice to Management

    Make sure to keep an eye on those employees that have the drive to grow and be better at their profession. Those are usually the ones that will make your business move forward. Don't forget to treat them well.

    I worked at Emphasys Software full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    People that work here are nice and easy going. During training, company provides industry background to help you understand market and clients. Conscientious of personal time-off. Good benefits and office space.

    Cons

    No growth opportunities in place to nurture and retain good employees. Management does not care or feel the need to foster a real sense of company culture. No specialty roles or specialization needed/encouraged. Starting salary is below average. Do not expect a major annual increase.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to employees and implement suggestions when voiced (and if reasonable). If the current leadership team is not on board with change and advancement, find others who have reputable experience under their belt and are open to leading current teams by using new methods. If you want better employees, find outlets and resources to motivate your current ones (you will find that some are still capable and willing) or... be more selective during recruiting. Look for ways to innovate, if not you will continue receiving mediocre work.
