    Two steps forward one step back

    Senior Software Development Engineer (Former Employee)
    Raleigh, NC

    ProsTeam 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!

    ConsServant 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 Senior ManagementYou'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

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    Raleigh, NC

    ProsGreat people to work with, working downtown was a perk

    ConsThe 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.

    Good foundation of solutions but shaky recent era.

    Marketing and Sales (Former Employee)

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

    ConsConstant 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 Senior Managementfind a buyer quickly

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    A fast-paced company with no direction

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsRelaxed 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.

    ConsBenefits 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 Senior ManagementToo many chiefs (middle management).

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Too many changes too fast

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Irving, TX

    ProsExecutive staff are concerned with growing the business and bettering customer service for their customers.

    ConsWhile integrating the new companies is essential to success, executives don't concern themselves with the culture and practices of the companies they buy out before implementing new policies, so employees are left very dissatisfied. Peoplefluent purchased a telecommuting company where employees would telecommute 85% of the time. The are now told they cannot telecommute at all, which was a huge part of the ideology and work ethics in place when getting hired. It is also why so many have stayed and accepted less than market wages.

    Advice to Senior ManagementEvery policy does not have to be hard and fast throughout the company. If you would like to turn the entire company into a non-telecommuting company, please compensate employees appropriately not only for the time, but also for the added personal expenses your new policies have created.

    Used to be a fun place to work but more stressful now.

    ConsShrinking resources and infrastructure. Corporate instability thru all locations. Questionable goals for future products uses and technologies. Company maybe getting away from customer satisfaction which used to be very important. Very few job openings both internally and externally.
