Sr. Java Developer

Senior Java Developer (Current Employee)
Jacksonville, FL (US)

I have been working at PSS World Medical as a contractor for more than 3 years

ProsIncredible culture. Great people. You can work remote on occasion. There are a lot of things going on, so you can do just about anything.

ConsThere is some really bad code in there. The original eCommerce app that is still in use is a compendium of anti-patterns. It takes some work to get used to it. The good news is that piece by piece we are refactoring it into a much less painful beast and pulling services out and building new ones.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
