    Fun team, major changes ahead which could be good or bad

    Marketing (Current Employee) San Francisco, CA

    ProsGreat co-workers & flexible work environment - My department is very fun, and has a lot of opportunity for the products to grow. We have many team outings and there is a lot of trust from management towards the team. I've had lots of opportunities to learn new skills and have been given responsibilities which have enabled me to grow.

    ConsCurrently there have been too many changes to management causing uncertainty & lack of leadership/direction for the LeaseStar side of the business. Also, it's hard dealing with needy clients that have little to no technical background & this gets very tedious.

    Advice to Senior ManagementFor the SF office, salaries are okay, could be better since this is such an expensive area. Also, bring back some of the food - it's a great way to offer competitive benefits at little expense. More direction for future plans of the SF office would be uplifting - things seem a bit uncertain at the moment.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    A good company and a good challenge

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) San Francisco, CA

    ProsA company that wants to grow. If you're looking for a job where you're micro-managed and everyone tells you exactly how to do your job, this isn't the company for you. Here you need to step it up and not make excuses. If you want something done, you go out and make it happen. Its interesting reading previous reviews because I just don't feel that way. It may be my own personal experience (previous with other companies and present) that are defining my outlook, but here, I feel like I can grow. Co-workers are great. Happy and friendly and want to help others succeed.

    ConsReally the only problem I've run into is communication. I find that with a lot of places. I think its due to the constant acquisitions and new products.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMy advice, beef up the communication. We need a leader whos sole purpose is understanding the company, products, and how we are all tied together AND THEN ensuring the rest of us do as well. Its a great company to work for in my opinion, but the communication could use some work.

    Fast Paced Technology Company... A good place to work.

    Senior Director, Total Rewards (Former Employee) Carrollton, TX

    ProsThe Company is changing rapidly and growing Internationally, so there are a lot of things to do and learn.

    ConsIt can be a very political place to work and the Company's equity program was a challenge due to fluctuating stock price (down from $29.50 in mid 2011).

    Company offers many opportunities for advancement.

    Product Support Agent (Current Employee) Carrollton, TX

    ProsI think that the opportunities for advancement are above average within the different departments and they offer a competitive compensation package. The company continues to grow through the regular acquisition of other companies within the industry,

    ConsNewly acquired products are often integrated with limited information provided to those responsible for supporting it. May face potential barriers moving to a different department within the company.

    Job depends on your manager and group

    Manager (Current Employee) Carrollton, TX

    ProsLaid back atmosphere.
    Nice workspace.
    Decent work/life balance but it all depends on your manager and group. There are some really terrible managers that play favorites, politic constantly, talk behind everyone's backs and only worry about making themselves look good. They rule by fear.
    There are some managers that really care about the employees and growing them professionally. They lead by example and want you to have a life outside of work. The groups/departments are drastically different.
    If you are lucky enough to land in a good group with a quality manager that wants you to succeed, hang on! They do exist.

    ConsDecent pay if you're coming off the street. Transferring within the company, ridiculous. Promotions don't mean you can make what your peers are making for the same job or the offer you'd have if you were an outside candidate. It means an increase that has to be approved by 10 people and probably won't get you anywhere near where it should.
    The company has a lot of growth and you can almost do nothing and keep your job. That being said, new positions are only added in India and the Philippines but the tasks assigned to them is embarrassing. Most of my peers in India have 10 more years of education or experience or both but they are given the tasks that a high school student could accomplish. They should be utilized more or they'll be bored and leave.
    Management is so top heavy!! And they reorganize the groups every 30 days or so! I know people who don't even know who they report to.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThose surveys we take every year, read them.

    Fast growing, long hours, bad management & NO proper training.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsCo-workers, casual environment, okay pay & benefits.

    ConsNo work balance, management talks behind your back to other managers & your peers. EXTREMELY Long hours, high turnover rate in most departments. HR does not know the meaning of Privacy.

    Advice to Senior ManagementListen more & take the advice of your employees. You are not the only ones that want the company to succeed

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    A lot to like, punctuated by frustration

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Dallas, TX

    ProsCollaborative work environment and colleagues, robust suite of products and services for the target markets, steady growth, clear bonus metrics (although some are out of the control of the individual), flexible work arrangements, tight but not oppressive travel policies, an openness to new ideas, at least at the department operations level.

    ConsCommunication from executives about strategy and changes is very guarded until moments before it is implemented, leaving employees no opportunity to provide feedback before new policies, structures and approaches are implemented. Advancement and growth opportunities are stifled by absent career path definition, cost controls, and the suspicion that there are backdoor deals between executives to keep employees where it is most convenient for those executives rather than allow them to pursue roles that grow them.

    Advice to Senior ManagementIf you want to develop a succession plan, and long term employee loyalty, you must do better at using the quarterly and annual review process to outline career paths and opportunities for employees, you must improve communication (take that as a general and universal suggestion across all areas) and strive for as much transparency as possible when structural changes are made.
