"I loved being able to make a real difference in the way people at the agencies did their work. It was always a positive, professional experience and you couldn't ask for better people to work with. They value employee retention and satisfaction and actually strive to achieve it."

"I love the control of the direction regarding the architecture. However, we are so consumed with client requests for work that there is almost no time at all for researching new trends for better software web solutions, and this is not good for a developer's career."

"One of my favorite activities is communicating with all levels within the company. I enjoying talking with the developers and assisting with the design of the apsplications. And then in the next hours, walking into an Executive staff meeting to discuss the overall direction of the company.One of the challenges is making the staffing decisions. Even though, I have always maintained a small Agile team, having to reduce staff is always very hard decisions."

"I loved working and mentoring each team member. I had some extremely talented people work for me. I learned quite a bit from each one of them and by working together we improved our software development processes and became a very efficient team. The thing that I hated was the lack of vision, by our parent company, into the future with respect to the products that we were developing."
