    Pros

    Benefits are amazing. They do take care of people via their benefits. People work hard and are dedicated to the organization and the vision of the company. Quarterly meetings with all employees are very good in keeping everyone informed of the progress of the company.

    Cons

    Company has grown so fast over the last couple of years that the "family culture" is beginning to be affected. The growth is only now beginning to be structured. Because of the fast unstructured growth over the last couple of years, many people were impacted and moral started to drop and unfortunately, continuing to drop.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be careful of cronyism. It is beginning to be very prevalent in the organization and impacting the business.

    - allow flexibilty to work from home during black out periods (if the employee has proven that they are able to successfullly work from home)

    I have been working at Ultimate Software as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    The company understands that happy workers benefit the company. Tons of perks in office that you can take advantage of: Breakfast days, massages, and ice cream on certain days. Not only this, but their hours are flexible, giving you the opportunity to work at home or travel on the road, given what you are into.

    Cons

    Due to most employees telecommuting, many of the people you work with you never meet face to face

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Great work!

    Pros

    Great benefits, interesting work, mid-sized company with small company feel. Continuously improving the customer and employee experience. There is a great deal of career growth potential.

    Cons

    Growth has been too rapid, leaving us scrambling to define new processes. Middle management disconnect in support departments, they live outside "the bubble".

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your lower level employees. Remeber the company philosophy of keeping employees happy first so that everything else will follow. Managers new to the company forget that all too often.
