    Pros

    The people are excellent, super smart and very driven. Incredibly hard workers who are all business on the outside, but kind and considerate on the inside. The corporate brand is very strong and no doubt a leader in the industry. There is an energetic dynamic across the organization and it's clear they're continuing to grow strongly. A stable environment with few layoffs and reasonably fair employee treatment

    Cons

    Rather than allowing the region more leeway in decision making, the HQ is adding more and more layers of approvals necessary to get things done. It slows things down tremendously and dis-empowers local leadership. It's a highly matrixed organization and often it is unclear how to navigate the bureaucracy to get what you need to get done, done.

    Advice to Management

    Make it easier to do business and everyone, (including clients) would be more successful.

    Pros

    Compensation and benefits are 5 star. Interesting people.

    Cons

    NO work - life balance. You are always engaged. Products are complex. Training in classroom and by CBT is available but time away to receive it is discouraged. Subject Matter Experts are in high demand. Choose wisely what module you will excel.
    Hebrew is spoken. English speaking employees miss out on office chatter.

    Advice to Management

    Hire a couple more to fill in for your valued employees to receive training!

    Pros

    Great executive leadership and innovation, always stays in front of the market with new products / solutions. The Executive leadership team sets a very positive direction.

    Cons

    Executing / delivery of projects is well below average, most products are very difficult to implement and do not meet the customer timeline.

    Advice to Management

    Fix the execution and delivery issues and Nice will be a more solid company.

    Pros

    Great pay, benefits and frontline people. Plenty of M&A activity and leading products in several areas of workforce/performance management will keep things exciting. Strong customer-facing events to enable sales. The sales and solutions teams are encouraged to be in front of customers constantly, which helps drive relationships. Most people work very hard, but also have fun.

    Cons

    Many RVP through Executive management levels are not engaged with the frontline sales people other than forecast administration. There is no advancement opportunity...they'd prefer to hire off the streets versus promote from within. Pricing and contracting can hinder new logo sales. Annual comp plans take months to receive. Marketing sometimes promotes products that R&D can't produce and Delivery can't support. Some post-sales groups demonstrate low morale and that bleeds over to the customer. Expect a major re-org each Jan.

    Advice to Management

    Be more engaged with the field and not so much with your own agendas.
