    Decisions are made with little regard for data

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsGreat people in the ranks who are smart and work hard

    ConsManagement changes direction with the wind. Not much regard for actual data when looking to the future. If someone falls out of favor, they are let go or pressured to leave.There are the favorites of the CEO who are too afraid to fall out of favor so they just follow along and don't recommend change or disagree with plans.

    Advice to Senior ManagementFocus on the core business and the core people who made the company great.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Great learning experience, but the internal politics became overbearing.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Eden Prairie, MN

    ProsGreat products, great people, great customers, environment and culture for the most part the best in the business, some great perks.

    ConsInternal politics, the people who are the CEO favorites are killing moral. Continuing to reward people for under performing, blaming, and not being accountable is bringing down the moral of the people who are doing great things for the products and the customer base.

    Advice to Senior ManagementNeed to get rid of the people that are destroying moral of the great performers. Reward the good people with career advancement and meaningful job titles.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Lots of Industry Consolidation

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsIts a great company to work for if you work at HQ in Eden Prairie MN. They seemed to have a great culture there.

    ConsHelp/Systems has purchased more than a half dozen smaller software companies over the last several years. Sadly, Help/Systems has decided to let almost every employee go from all of the companies that they decide to purchase.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBe honest with the employees at the companies you are buying up. If you are going to lay off all of the employees, that is fine, but dont host a company meeting in which you say "nothing is going to change" and then a month later come back and let a large portion of the work force go.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
