    J'ai travaillé chez Charles River Development à temps plein (Plus de 3 ans)

    Avantages

    Tons of responsibility for a first job
    Lots of exposure to senior management
    Consistently pushed to learn more

    Inconvénients

    When sent out into the field, support can be very limited at times. For somebody that didn't have contacts within engineering, it can be extremely daunting. Very sink or swim mentality.
    Nonexistant company culture.

    Conseils à la direction

    More feedback and communication, please.

    J'ai travaillé chez Charles River Development à temps plein (Moins d'un an)

    Avantages

    If you want to work hard and then not get appreciated then this is the right company.
    Few teams have good managers who support their teammates so totally luck driven.

    Inconvénients

    Mediocre work and legacy code base on which they build their new projects. Manager tried to micro manage everything irrespective of work being completed on time so it was frustrating.

    J'ai travaillé chez Charles River Development à temps plein

    Avantages

    salary is competitive
    mall is close by...

    Inconvénients

    no work culture at all
    unfriendly environment
    buggy proprietary technologies with close to zero or outdated documentation
    outdated workplace - unless you are nostalgic about 80th office space
    no teamwork (you barely talking to your team)
    no team buildings (drink alone, eat alone will be your credo)
    no introductory steps for newcomers - you will be expected to perform as good as people working here for 10 years from day 1
    you are expected to work long hours (directly or indirectly)
    micromanagement (up to ridiculous every hour check)
    don't expect work/life balance here - work hard, play hard is not about this company - work hard, work hard - people are expected to spend 9 hours working and are ashamed to be relaxed
    every team has it's own code style which is far from standards
    no freedom to make your own decision how to implement code, you will be forced to do as your team lead sees it even if it's obvious anti-pattern

    Conseils à la direction

    hire a company to audit your processes, code, solutions, architecture and make sure that people have their titles because of their qualities / abilities, and not just because of the long work in the company

    Avantages

    Growing company, overall good company

    Inconvénients

    Some managers/Team Leads have zero leadership skills to become Team Leads, no freedom at all to work independently so much micro management. Not only work has to done but it has to be the way your team lead thinks is the right way (which is always wrong). Zero leadership skills. Some team leads dont even know how to communicate things micro management is their top priority. If anyone in the team complains about anything or try to share their thoughts with the management, they are kicked out of the company. seriously.

    Conseils à la direction

    Give proper training to Team Leads to become better managers.

    Process oriented and sticks to it fiercely

    Outdated tech stack, product not easily flexible for any new adaptation
    No WFH, mandatory 45 hrs work week.
