I signed up for this job as a CSS/HTML expert and was told i was going to have to work around Joomla!. This wasn't a big deal for me but little did i know how this company operated. I've been a web designer for about 10 years now. All this company cares about is getting money at any cost and for us (the employees) to lie to our clients constantly just to make them happy and to avoid giving them a refund.
The issue were there are only about 5-6 designers, we're given over 30 websites at any given time, while the sales team promises the client that the site will be complete in 4-6 weeks. This is obviously impossible when you are the only one working on the sites assigned to you with the option of a freelancer doing some grunt work for you. The sales team will promise the client the sites will be unique but they are pre-made designs from yootheme.com or rockettheme.com with a few modifications.
Considering this company tries to act so active with pet adoptions, it's quite odd that they would actually accept pet stores that sell dogs or sites that sell numerous different breeds as clients. If you're knowledge about puppy mills, you'll know these clients are supporting them by purchasing their dogs from puppy mills. The owner and sales team knowingly made us continue work on these sites.
As for the designers, even though they may be nice people, quite a few of them knew nothing about web design or design in general. The entire time i was there, there was only one other female that was actually a web designer, the other 5 people i worked with knew nothing about web design.
The last aspect is they promise ongoing SEO. Please don't be fooled by this if you're looking to hire them. They practice BlackHat SEO, which can get your banned on Google. You can take a look at their site for a good example. They don't do any type of link building. I know all this cause i was also supposed to do SEO for them but then gave up on it cause in the end they really wanted someone to continue to lie to the client on the phone and just tell them everything is going well, which isn't something i'm willing to do. We gave them no reports or any way for them to see any difference in the search engines.
