Testing Specialist (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 5 November 2017
This was a project that kept firing PM's for being honest about the position and reality of meeting deadlines and budgets about the project. Leadership was in Florida, team in Calgary and extremely disconnected from the actual challenges the development team was facing developing their software. Cutting corners on "expenses" by hiring teams overseas also lead to severe inefficiencies. Near the end of the project, works 7 days a week, over 11 hours a day with some 18-20 hour days on deliverables to their customers (pending litigation if not delivered) that had a deadline within a week but were in reality 8 weeks away from being DEVELOPED, not to mention tested and ready for launch. Leadership seemed to thing that keeping staff almost 24/7 would suddenly improve the odds of delivering on time.
