    Pros

    Competitive Salaries 401k Match Suite offering limits competition Work from home offerings

    Cons

    Tons of Turnover from top down - all departments. Not the family environment they are seeking due to the what's in it for me culture. Under the surface moral is low for these reasons and on average very few reaching needed goals. Brand is best known by analysts not by prospects.

    Advice to Management

    There is no immediate fix . The company has been on a roller coaster of management for quite some time. A family atmosphere can not be forced it must feel real and right.

    I have been working at PeopleFluent full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great products and a real opportunity to be a leader in the HCM space. There are a lot of great people working here, unfortunately none are in Senior Leadership roles. New Sales Leadership is a breath of fresh air and, hopefully, will be given the autonomy to be successful.

    Cons

    Senior Executives (CEO, Chairman, Exec Chairman) have created a negative culture with no clear and visible leader. It takes forever to get a decision made and the top three execs will continuously be on different pages and communicate different priorities (or not communicate at all). Micro-management from the top makes it hard to get any strategic initiatives done and implemented.

    Advice to Management

    Pick one powerful, motivational and visible leader and get everyone else out of the way so they can lead. Clearly articulate who we are and where we are going so every employee understands. There is no culture at this company outside of fear and mistrust. Do the hard work it takes to live what we preach every day to our clients, Employee Engagement leads to success. Develop a positive culture or risk more of the massive turnover that has plagued this company for years.

    Pros

    Some people are just the best. Somehow PF attracts top talent.

    Cons

    But they sure don't keep it. They just keep hiring marketing people - but for what? You must invest in the product in order to sell or market it.

    Advice to Management

    Take a look at what people are acutally doing there. A lot of poor performers hide out there.

    Pros

    CEO is awesome Great People Great Products Great Customer Support Great Analyst reviews Product pricing is in line with the current market trends...maybe even a bit on the low side

    Cons

    Absolutely poor Marketing - maybe one or two leads per month....yes per month at best This is a Tier 3 company competing in a Tier 1 space against Cornerstone, Oracle, SAP .etc. The company has had ultra high attrition. The board of directors are micro managers: they track every call, email, appointment in SFDC.....it feels like the company is selling vinyl siding. Think carefully about the HR space before you commit your career to it. IT is not an easy sale because it is a cost center LOB.

    Advice to Management

    Focus....100% of your efforts on Marketing (maybe revamp marketing with new blood) and build awareness at the field level. The challenge is to break through the plethora of digital noise in this HR space. Get the act together on implementation service pricing.

    Pros

    Work from home, decent pay.

    Cons

    Lack of leadership, every product operates in a silo, lack of communication between teams, lack of commitment to agile processes even though they say they are an agile shop. Lack of automated QA.

    Advice to Management

    Needs a major re-organization to bring all teams and divisions closer together. Needs a commitment from the top on Agile.

    Pros

    There are some great people working here and Jeff Carr has been a strong, positive influence.

    Cons

    Due to merging so many different company cultures together, it lost the feel of a company that cares about it's employees. Heavy turnover.

    Pros

    The products are good, but designed to be flashy (as opposed to functional).

    Cons

    Management is horrible but, luckily, you won't be stuck with him/her long, since turnover is high. There are a few true gems in the mix, but overall, they are directionless and waste time pointing fingers at each other when things go wrong.

    Advice to Management

    Click the 'sort by date' to see how it's getting worse, not better. A simple 'thank you' will go a long, long way for many.

    Pros

    You can work remotely, in most cases.

    Cons

    You would think that all the departments are working independently of one another, as if they're all working for other companies. In the big picture they portray themselves to be all part of the family but when you lift up the skirt, you're in for a surprise. Even people on the same small team that was designed to help take sales initiatives to a new level can't communicate properly to all parties involved, you hear two different things, or in most cases nothing at all and you're left wondering what to do, only to find out a week later that what you did shouldn't have been done. People act put out when you ask for their assistance, even though you do everything you can up front to minimize the impact your request may have on their workload. But when you aren't asking for their assistance they're offering it up left and right. People here talk out of both sides of their mouth and it makes for a frustrating experience.

    Advice to Management

    I can't say anything that hasn't already been said. This company is severely disconnected.

    Pros

    There is never a lack of work! Keeping busy was easy. Great place to learn the profession of software design, code, deploy.

    Cons

    Having to deal with clients that have just been lied to in the sales process was a challenge. The 'spin' oriented presentation of software features was ultimately destructive. The software is indeed Frankenstein and difficult to use. This is not an organization that builds client relationships based on authentic communication and integrity. Delivery and services during implementations was poor. Clients are often ignored after the sales contract signed.

    Advice to Management

    Find people that can build and retain client trust via sincerity, and people that get things done with integrity.
