    I worked at Peoplefluent full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    PeopleFluent is one of those companies where if you're willing to roll up your sleeves and do more than what's asked, you're recognized for it. Each of PeopleFluents different products have a lot of potential. Compensation and benefits match what the industry currently has for a Web Developer.

    Cons

    No matching 401k. There seems to be something amiss that causes all their 'A' talent to want to leave and with all the positive reviews for this company on here, I wonder what they're not seeing these talented people leave. PeopleFluent has so much potential and yet they don't act on it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get your 'A' talent back.

    Former Employee - Regional Sales Manager in Raleigh, NC
    Former Employee - Regional Sales Manager in Raleigh, NC

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

    Pros

    Solid base salary, company has been improving since Jeff Carr took over, rock solid talent management software, very caring and helpful folks in some areas of the business.

    Cons

    Tons of turnover in sales org, punitive sales environment set up by senior management, large quota versus industry average, below average commission pay structure, no opportunity for personal or professional growth, no synergy between sales, marketing, finance, development, legal.
    To be successful you must be willing to work 60-80 hours per week.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to stabalize the company and sell as soon as you can.

    Former Employee - Regional Sales Manager
    Former Employee - Regional Sales Manager

    I worked at Peoplefluent full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Nice competitive product suite, and good base compensation.

    Cons

    Working remotely I was not connected to the headquarters and communication was poor. I lacked support in the field, significant changes in management over only 6 months, Territory changes 3 times within that period, and goals changed. Being a field sales rep it was a challenge to understand the direction of the company or the goals I was trying to achieve.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Support the field and employees on the West coast. There is a big disconnect between corporate and field employees.

    Former Employee - Senior Software Development Engineer in Raleigh, NC
    Former Employee - Senior Software Development Engineer in Raleigh, NC

    I worked at Peoplefluent as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    Team members were friendly and helpful. Fellow software developers were very receptive to learning and sharing knowledge. Was a great experience being a part of major system architectural improvements from front-end to back-end. Team members really embraced newer technologies and concepts not only in some green field development but also in actively migrating the software code base such as implementing dependency injection, adding anti-corruption layers, building up onion architecture with a focus on domain driven design. Doughnuts and breakfast sandwiches every Friday morning!

    Cons

    Servant leadership was seldom practiced. Thin product ownership. Not enough planning was being done. Overall it seemed like there were too many moving parts between products, systems, management, and teams with lots of room for error.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You're losing a lot of great software developers because you're not investing in them. Most every developer on our team who was hired in the past couple years has moved on because the hire portion of the contract-to-hire never happened.

    Lots of change since I was at this company

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Raleigh, NC

    I worked at Peoplefluent full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great people to work with, working downtown was a perk

    Cons

    The department I worked in has turned over 100% since I left. Everyone that I have talked to in the last three years has talked about how bad the new management is to work for. I would never want to go back to this company.

    I worked at Peoplefluent full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good office locations for most business units and cool acquisition components in recent years with a solid set of foundation products.

    Cons

    Constant churn in executive leadership, poor communication and engagement among business units, questionable dedication to the core industry served and mission of empowering the talent management industry.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    find a buyer quickly

    Pros

    Great technology and really great people to work with.

    Cons

    The Bedford ownership team including the CEO, CTO, IR, and Legal/Board member are really totalitarian, unethical, and driving all the good people out. In the past two years we have had 3 CEOs, 3 CMOs, 4 heads of sales, 3 GCs, etc. No one can last long with the Chairman (CJ) micromanaging everything in an abusive manner.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bedford Funding - Please sell us.

    I worked at Peoplefluent full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Relaxed work environment and casual dress. Office is located downtown Raleigh and within walking distance of plenty of restaurants, banks, post office, etc. Free parking in one of several covered garages.

    Cons

    Benefits and salaries below average. Middle management (good ole boy network) unstable. The Authoria acquisition took the close knit work atmosphere and replaced it with typical dull corporate mentality.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Too many chiefs (middle management).
