    Pros

    Not much to say here

    Cons

    Genesys HR requested that employees post fake reviews to "pump up" the company reputation, which seems to destroy the whole purpose of Glassdoor.

    Genesys does not influence employee reviews. We do ask our employees to post reviews – honest, genuine evaluations of how they feel about working at Genesys. All employee reviews represent employee’s ... More

    I worked at Genesys full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The company has s great software product

    Cons

    Life balance non existence in here.
    No vacation accrual. So pray for a good and understandable manager (unlikely).
    The worst medium level management that I've seen in any company that I've worked for. Worst of all, high level managers don't care.
    Don't expect a good flow of communication.
    Daly City (nothing in here but fog)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pros

    Smart sales engineers that are willing to indure the stupidity of administrative staff that do not respect, appreciate or understand how an SE contributes to an enterprise software sale.

    Cons

    No respect for the above mentioned sales engineers. Here is an idea, we are going to hire SE's right off the street with no industry experience.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Why not hire management and HR and other back office right out of college? Surely they could not do any worse.

    It sounds like you are frustrated by our Associate Sales Engineer Program, which is designed to hire and develop new talent to support and work with our senior SE’s. We GREATLY value our existing SE ... More

    Technical Support is a bad place for a career in anything outside Genesys "World"

    I have been working at Genesys

    Pros

    The only benefit is that you learn Genesys apps.

    Cons

    No promotions, no recognition for hard work.
    Technical Support Management does not have any value for quality work and
    never supports in any movement within the company for a progress in career and creates obstacles by not giving appropriate genesys skills for development after any attempts to move within the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The company has technical support as part of it and not vice versa.
    IMO,only dull people decide to stay in one place forever, others try to progress
    and move forward and you should support their efforts because you wanted to hire smart people!

    If you think that you've fooled everyone so far in giving them false hopes, experienced employees are leaving technical support which clearly shows a lot!

    Rewarding the same employees over and over again and promoting them 2 to 3 times is great! Try rewarding other employees who have served you for years as well and see what a difference it will make!
