At rentrak I liked my coworkers, the codebase was ok, but aged. The real problem at rentrak was a group mentality that seemed to react to even the smallest thing with apocalypse level drama and anger. There were also so many developers on multiple teams with stake in the codebase making any significant changes or modernization of the codebase into a minefield of politics.

My spirit was not crushed at rentrak, but I knew it would be if I stayed just because there was no room for anything new or interesting (except small things)

I don't generally see the despair from my little office.. would you be open to commenting on your issue(s) with Rentrak?  I'd love to hear what others thing/feel/etc about their exp. here (yeah, I work at Rent, been here 10 years in development but I keep my team away from the rest of the company)
