Full Stack Developer in Toronto, ON
on 25 June 2022
As a developer, the only things I care about is ease of development and workflow. Unfortunately, the legacy OJS is a bit broken. Here are some observations: - It is not uncommon to spend 10+ mins waiting for a page to load and sometimes it never loads.- Requirements for tasks are often vague.- Very little development, you spend all your time debugging (terrible for future prospects).- No mentorship or training.Upper management is OK. I did not interact that much with upper management and I do not have much to say about them. However, there was always a lot of tension whenever the CEO was around. Middle management was great including the Product Owner and Agile Coach. The current development team overall are all very kind and skilled people.Overall, my time at JMIR will likely be forgotten rather quickly. It is a workplace that attracts talented workers but overshadowed by a terrible development environment and rude upper management.

Great place to work and they are making improvements
It’s a great company, there is a lot to learn but they are working hard to improve how information is being shared which is great. I love that it’s a learning organization and are striving to always improve.

Soul crushing experience
If you have any joy in your life or any aspirations for your career, I highly suggest considering another employer.The day to day tasks are meaningless and consist of fixing a long broken system that will never truly work in it's current state. The talented people the company manages to fool into joining quickly realize their mistake and either leave or give up.The current management will continue to siphon money from the company while accomplishing nothing, lying and deflecting blame for all their shortcomings(too many to list) along the way.

Stressful and chaotic environment
There are no processes in place in the engineering team. Everyone is just trying to find anything to do, so another day goes. Unclear tasks are also great challenge for developers, as they get blamed for improper implementation of a feature that was poorly defined to begin with. The CEO is harrassing people in the communication channels.

Stressful workplace, coupled with unclear tasks/projects, with a laughable management team
The workplace may seem inviting in the interview process, but coming into the workplace, everything changes.The tasks and projects, while seemingly simplistic, are wrought contradictions and a lack of clarity. This would be fine if trying to solicit assistance from the management team wasn't a farce/wasted effect.There are 2|5|10X employees clearly carrying the weight of their bosses, causing burnout, and high turnover. And acknowledgment for your successes? Good luck if you're not part of the upper echelon.
