    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 Management

    Get your 'A' talent back.

    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 Management

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

    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 Management

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

    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 Management

    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.

    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.

    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 Management

    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 Management

    Bedford Funding - Please sell us.
