ScrumMaster Reviews

Q: What is it like working as a ScrumMaster?

ScrumMaster in Sacramento:
"Undervalued Importance of Standards, Processes and Methodologies."
Pros: Ability to work constructively for change, including fulfillment of defined initiatives, missions, programs and projects.
Cons: Leadership does not draw upon its subject-matter experts to provide valuable perspective and depth of understanding. The gap becomes evident when decisions are made and the staff is challenged to determine how to transition to that decision, without any business interruption, and at a minimal cost and duration.

ScrumMaster in Seattle:
"A chance to turn over a new leaf, but inertia remains."
Pros: Great people. Low-stress environment where everyone seems to want to pull in the same direction. Dress code is a chance to look sharp in a city that seems to actively shun that.
Cons: For a Fortune 500 company, management is ridiculously cheap, often for seemingly poor reasons. Company is trying to move away from old-fashioned bureaucratic development processes, but there are a few dinosaurs who seem like they just won't get on board for the big win.

ScrumMaster:
Management is aloof, they don't understand the importance of the different roles. HUGE lack of transparency amongst teams. People being put into roles without any credentials or experience in those roles. Too many changes all the time. You have to be fearful of the people on your own team. NO consistency at any level for anything. Good people end up getting fed up and leaving. If you have a good manager like I do at this time, it makes things a bit more bearable and overtime you become like the rest of the people who work their and stop caring. Benefits get better the longer you're there and if you ask most employees, that's what keeps them around. The good people who want to do the right thing and make a difference, leave as soon as they can, sometimes before even having another opportunity lined up. I've seen them fall like flies and continue seeing that now at a senior level as well.

ScrumMaster in Tampa:
"The benefits are great."
Pros: The benefits. I have great health insurance and I’m going back to school for free.
Cons:

ScrumMaster:
Only been working here for about a month, but so far it is a great company to work for. Co-workers are all very helpful to get me on-boarded. Work from home is great flexibility. Management has a good vision.

ScrumMaster in Bellevue:
"Coach the team and PO, don't manage them."
This is not a Management role, it's a coordinator role, invest in your training and knowing how others execute best practices. Keep current, don't stay with the knowledge of your company/project or single certification.

ScrumMaster in Encino:
"Good times."
Pros: Collaborative work experience, multi-cultural and diverse, work with people all around the world, work from home full-time, strong company.
Cons: Schedule can be difficult.
