    I worked at Headstrong full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    It had ATCOE when I was working. It was a place to learn and had freedom in the sense that you can download softwares and work freely. Although it still had many constraints.

    Cons

    1. Too many constraints. 2. Too much business oriented and that was a requirement for software developers too. 3. Strict dress code in office. 4. Some departments had egomaniacs as manager. 5. Very low inspiration for software developers. 6. Developers needed to constantly talk to clients, most of them were too proud and abusive. 7. Way less compensation. I mean right now I am earning 10 times more than what I was earning there, and I am not rich. It was sad for me, and must be for many people working there. 8. CEO seemed to advertise himself as Tiger in hope of getting respect. It doesn't work as far as I have observed.
