    No Opinion of CEO

    I worked at Equal Experts for less than a year

    Pros

    Work with *some* talented people. Excellent Day rate. Lovely People team.

    Cons

    Lack of project managers with people skills. Lip service to agile and team management (but without the follow through). Fabricating and manipulating sprint results to coddle client. Failure to listen and punishment to those that speak up about poor professional practice.

    Advice to Management

    Respect those that work for you. Just because "You wear shoes" doesn't mean you're right all the time.

    Cons

    * I think they're on the right path but we need more diversity on our teams.
