    Senior Test Automation Engineer

    I have a joined a reputed product based company. The system is Lil complex and they are going to change the entire system into new. The problem is neither they have given me the KT about the application and no-one has any answers to my questions. I am not sure how I will achieve to make it as new system without knowing the existing system. Should I continue the or leave after 1.5 months? I am confident that I can find another job. Please let me know your thoughts.

      OEC Used to Be a Contender

      3 Dec 2021 - Customer Support Representative in Richfield, OH
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook


      Most employees are friendly and happy to help others, although most roles being remote has changed the dynamic. I believe that at one time management wanted to help employees grow and move up, but at this point the company is all about making more money and taking on more business.


      A complete upper management overhaul and a struggle to be a continuing top competitor in the tech industry has led to much of the staff across the company taking their leave without notice. Pay has significantly decreased for new hires compared to when I started a few years ago, PTO and benefits continue to decline in caliber and quality, and the overall environment has changed from familial and professionally diverse to that of just a call center with overworked employees and impossible expectations.

      Avoid. Just avoid.

      Some of the best, most talented developers and data analysts that I've had the pleasure to work with. The sort of people who inspire you to do better. Pay is quite good. Other benefits are negligible.


      Let's start with upper management, who, with a few exceptions, were the magical trifecta of inept, ignorant and arrogant. Avaricious salespeople promoted far beyond their competency level who are unwilling and unable to comprehend what their technical staff would actually do. The technology itself had promise. Some very talented people poured a huge amount of time and effort into it. Unfortunately, this went unrecognised within the company. Half finished solutions were rushed out of the door to make a quick buck. Developers would spend the majority of their time firefighting. Fixing bugs that should've never made it into production, providing low level tech support to the telesales team, and expend huge amounts of effort simply keeping the system running. What was meant to be a laissez faire environment went totally unchecked by lower management and team leaders. Cliques were common, tears were common, and valid concerns were dismissed as "banter" and "just the motor trade". Finally, for a company with a business model that is essentially eliminating inefficiency, they were staggeringly inefficient. Salespeople would swoop over new opportunities like vultures. Not communicating with each other about what was sold to who. More times than I can count I'd be told to work on a new feature, only to be told the following day to stop work and start on something else. A week later....back to the original feature, followed by inevitable "Why isn't it done yet?! You said it'd only take a day" conversation.

      Former Employee, more than 1 year

      Antiquated culture & product (with a dash of chauvinism for flavor)

      3 Jan 2019 - Business Development Representative in Richfield, OH
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook


      - A fair amount of autonomy in the role - Fairly well-known in the prospective market - The work space is nice, with a gym and cafe in the building


      - CEO and much of the upper management lead through fear - An antiquated product that (with few exceptions) does NOT deliver on expectations - Selling into a highly-saturated market with a legacy of unfulfilled promises. I.E. most customers have or have had a product from OEC that did not deliver the ROI promised.
