    Pros

    - people are nice, easily build friendships
    - close to a lot of restaurants
    - you will never be fired

    Cons

    -there is little to no communications between departments
    -no pay increase because they are always cutting budgets down
    -no bonuses
    -low morale, due to the CEO being an attention monger and only looking out for himself
    -no incentive to work or produce

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - if you have enthusiasm, it will trickle down
    - give your employees incentive to work harder
    - don't keep people who are not working, you're wasting $$ that could be invested on the ones who are

    Beware- Employees leave Ebix due to poor management, lack of career growth opportunities, and low compensation.

    Pros

    One of the pros of working with Ebix is that there are some truly talented employees. Unfortunately, most of them are with the company through acquisitions Ebix makes and they end up leaving once they realize that working for Ebix means that there is no longer room for career growth, raises, etc.

    Cons

    Executives and people in leadership roles are incapable of making decisions or presenting a clear direction for the company- much less all of the divisions and products that fall under Ebix. The company is constantly making acquisitions but never spends money on R&D, proper staffing, or Marketing. This leads to a lot of frustration internally and an extremely high turnover rate. Also, the office culture in Sandy Springs is terrible. Employees are forced to 'sign in' and 'sign out' like Kindergarteners and management is more focused on whether you are sitting at your desk (god forbid you go to lunch or the bathroom!) than they are about whether you are getting work done and meeting/exceeding your goals.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Nurture the talent that you have instead of constantly hiring from the outside. Hire better leadership. Have better communication with employees regarding the status of the company, earnings, new products rolling out, etc. Everyone is always in the dark unless a press release is issued. Spend money on R&D & hire more people for product development. The current product offering across the board is stagnant and needs a refresh. Hire more people in Marketing & a VP of Marketing to lead them. There are literally 3 people working in Marketing which makes absolutely NO sense for a company the size of Ebix.

    I worked at Ebix full-time

    Pros

    There are some true industry experts working on the front lines and that makes for some great collaborative opportunities. The work atmosphere is laid back in terms of casual dress, and occasional fun and games to take your mind off the grind.

    Cons

    Highly centralized management and decision-making leaves most of the company virtually paralyzed. Senior management rules through fear and intimidation. Some senior managers are in over their head because several acquisitions quickly took the company beyond their capabilities. Expense controls rule above and beyond all else, even to the point of harming productivity, products, and client relationships. Very short term quarter-to-quarter thinking is apparent. Nepotism is alive and well.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have some humility to accept that you outgrew your capabilities and need to bring in more professional expertise from the outside, in addition to trusting your front-line employees to do the right thing.

    Pros

    Most of the day to day interactions with coworkers are good.

    Cons

    No annual OR merit based raises
    No job growth
    CEO must approve every expense...even basic needs for a software company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire more quality people
    Keep the quality people you already have
    Don't sacrifice basic needs for profit margin

    Pros

    Friendly coworkers
    Flex-time at local office
    Relaxed dress code
    Free parking
    Gym membership reimbursement up to $200 per year
    Average paid time off, but you get an increase in vacation days after only two years

    Cons

    Low pay
    No annual salary increases or financial incentives for a job well done
    Mediocre retirement plan
    Little to no chance of career growth within the company
    Most positions cannot work remotely, even on a part-time basis

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop micromanaging details and start doing some long-term planning. Invest in training and team building within the company. Turnover is high and will get even higher as the job market opens up unless you pay more attention to employee satisfaction.

    Pros

    You'll get experience with mini technologies and service offerings. You'll get exposure to some fortune 100 companies. And it's good professional networking.

    Cons

    o of consolidation. Executive team acquires companies but never consolidates or concentrates on redundancies. Personally seen for the e they keep the com that keep the company running.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pros

    leading company in its domain. As a fresher, you get to work on products that serve global markets. opportunity to work on different technologies used across products and projects of the company.

    Cons

    work is less challenging for experienced. Management is poor. promotions and hikes are affected by who you know in the company. HR is worst. They don't communicate well. If you join as a trainee, you become a software engineer at their own mercy. I have seen people get ting promoted even without the knowledge of their Project Manager, just because they know a employee who can influence HR decision. No work-life balance. Team leads are not inspiring people. They throw work at people who work under them and go home. Deadlines are poorly managed. If you are passionate about your work, you better avoid this place.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    improve work culture. encourage talented people. Remove "referrals effect" in promotions and hikes. Ensure HR people behave well.
