Value is placed more on the customer than the employees

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at NICE Systems full-time

ProsNICE is very knowledgeable in their areas of expertise giving great value to the customer. NICE cares about their customer satisfaction a great deal and will bend over backwards to accommodate the customer.

ConsEmployees can feel lost as sheep. When there are guidelines or processes, if the they can change on a daily basis. It seems almost every customization that is requested gets acceptance. Therefore it can be a nightmare to effectively build or support.

Advice to Senior ManagementMore than just once a year needs to be set aside for employee input.

Life in the fast lane

Advanced Support Engineer (Current Employee)
Denver, CO

I have been working at NICE Systems full-time for more than 5 years

ProsChallenging, constantly learning new methods of troubleshooting, never boring, can be technically/professionally rewarding in learning new technologies. Cutting edge software in what it can do. Truly a leader in our area of businesses.

ConsDeveloper support can be difficult to engage, R&D is not setup as a support team, rather they are new product developers who must balance support in their day as well, time zone differences between countries make collaboration difficult, no sense of customer care or urgency in R&D, development support should be moved to the US as the majority of our business is here. New products released are often buggy, difficult to fix and takes too long to fix. Not a true 24x7 support company although advertise that we are. Better work life/balance. If you want to sell customers premium support, staff the support centers so that it can be given rather than make do and overwork the staff we do have.

Advice to Senior ManagementSlow down on new product releases, improve QA before a product is released. Invest in your people. Take a long hard look at the human impact the support roles have on your people. We are losing quality talent, tenured talent because we are burning them out.

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

NICE place but a bit monotonous workflow

Software Engineer (Current Employee)
London, England (UK)

I have been working at NICE Systems full-time for more than a year

ProsReasonable everyday management on low level
Good information policy: if you want to know something about Company or people, you can find info with no problem
HR people are surprisingly good

ConsNo perspectives - the only way to increase your salary or responsibility level is to leave the company
A bit bureaucratic
Chaotic workflows, medium and high management tend to micromanage

Advice to Senior ManagementStop treating people as mere resources or treat them like teenagers. "Butts in seats" is not equal to "Job done:.

Not a good place for strong developers

Software Developer (Former Employee)
Raanana (Israel)

I worked at NICE Systems full-time for more than 3 years

ProsPeople are very friendly and fun to work with.
It is a nice place to start working as a beginner.

ConsToo much bureaucracy, a lot of unnecessary procedures.
The decisions are very political and not always very professorial.
The company is very dynamic, you can find yourself with different team every few months, doing something different and having a new boss.

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