I recently came across this article on 7 bad signs that you should not work for a company, mainly applying to software companies.
- No source control
- No top tools or only home brewed ones
- No business model or not enough money
- They don’t let you talk to or see developers
- High turnover
- Hiring is mainly done by HR, not by developers/technical staff
- No decent hardware
I do not know whether to laugh or cry. I think that I’ll just laugh it off then. Ha!
