"The things I love about programming, I also hate about programming. It's easy to get lost in work and come out hours later feeling like you've time traveled into the future.Programming is fun, challenging, tangible and rewarding (with a side of creativity)."

Programmer at University of Rhode Island
in Kingston, RI

"I loved having a work from home setting and being able to work when it was most convenient for me was a huge plus. The only downside was working on a 20+ year old database that needed some work and also inheriting previous programmer's work."

Programmer at Pinnacle Data Systems
in Birmingham, AL

"Writing this, I now realize that perhaps 'computer programmer' is a bit too general a title, so I'll give it a general (and probably a tad over-romantic) answer: Computer programming is more than math and logic (though if you like that stuff, it'll help, and if you don't, you'll learn to see the beauty in it). With it, I have a better understanding of the relations of things, of processes and information, of action and reaction, cause and effect. The intuition gained from it is invaluable."

Programmer at The Detroit News
in Detroit, MI

"I like solving problems. I enjoy applying technology and wits to solve organizational problems that others don't necessarily have the will to get through. The sense of accomplishment at the completion of difficult projects is extremely fulfilling."

Programmer at TRAC Intermodal
in Princeton Junction, NJ

"I got into programming because I needed to know some programming while getting my degree in physics, and when a career in physics didn't pan out, I decided to try this. I do not understand much of what is popular with computers. Also, there seems to be a mysticism that using a computer magically improves things. Computers can be useful. Being able to access data from anywhere, anytime is useful. Simply shoving things into computers is no, in itself, useful."

Programmer at Web Parts
in Danville, VA

Please give us a one liner to describe this review.

"It was a nightmare from day one."

What do you like about working at Web Parts?

"There was a few really good people there. Most of them became bitter and defensive as time went on. Its was chaotic, restrictive and dictatorial, only the Mad Hatter was the dictator!"

Do you have any tips for others interviewing with this company?

"Run, Don't walk. You will be better off anywhere else."

What don't you like about working at Web Parts?

"Everything. There was no organization or planning, only arbitrary orders. The only was to get along there is to kiss the CEO's butt, laugh at his derisive jokes, and forgive his volatile and hostile behavior. The culture there is one of Cover my own arse at everyone else's expense. Stress levels are through the roof and everyone is depressed, angry, frustrated or afraid all the time. No one has the tools they need to do their jobs. You can't ask for anything. If you do, you will be treated like you are a fool and even called an idiot or ridiculed. The CEO is the worst of the lot, having an evil temper and unreasonable expectations."

What suggestions do you have for management?

"Quit or grow some integrity at least. Stop throwing good people away. Stop threatening people and throwing tantrums. Stop lying about your employees and blaming them for your own bad decision. Start listening when others give you good advice. Stop thinking you are an expert at things you have no clue about. Better yet, leave town."

Programmer at Onestop Internet
in Carson, CA

Please give us a one liner to describe this review.

"People are mostly decent; but workflow & systems add unnecessary work/re-work."

What do you like about working at Onestop Internet?

"Honestly, I'm not sure. I suppose the exposure to different tools, programming languages, etc."

Do you have any tips for others interviewing with this company?

"Ask about the position they want you to take:-New, or existing-Last person left because...-What systems do you use for DEV, TEST and PROD environments-What is your development methodology"

What don't you like about working at Onestop Internet?

"The disorganization and the blatant disregard of management. They've been dysfunctional for so long, it's the only thing they know. Programmers bring up ideas to improve the process, but they are rarely, if ever, used. Our queues were constantly slammed... almost always a fire-fighting environment, development-wise."

What suggestions do you have for management?

"1. Audit processes. Suggest an outside party (E & Y, for example); that way, they get a fairly objective review. The audit should be 360 degrees and include customer service, project managers, and front-line staff. Mgmt, also, but can't expect full disclosure. They're used to hiding things.2. Hold the project managers responsible for proper documentation, including details in work tickets.3. Weekly Status reports by the proj mgr to management AND the team. If something is misrepresented, this gives the tactical group an opportunity to correct."

What don't you like about working at Tradelogic?

"Everything. Refer to what I did like about it. Oh, and somehow, they managed to call every time I stepped out for lunch like there was a camera in the room."
