    Pros

    Competitive pay, excellent benefits and flexibility. The culture is rich, people are generally happy and their philanthropism is truly remarkable.

    The company is in a race to reach $1billion in sales, and as such product quality is suffering.

    Advice to Management

    Watch out when speeding up. We dont want to sacrifice quality, focus, direction and employee moral. Please hold people accountable for their actions.

    Pros

    Very nice and friendly culture. They care about the employees. They are open to employees ideas specially if you work in development. Very flexible to adapts new tools and methodologies.

    Cons

    There is no cash bonus which is lame. No formal annual review. Everyone gets 4% salary increase which is unfair

    Advice to Management

    Try to build a more structured environment and come up with a formal review process to help your employees in the career growth

    I worked at Ultimate Software as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    -Wide range of project domains -Friendly staff and management -Beautiful area -Free breakfast once a month -Very easy interview process for interns

    Cons

    -They are obsessed with their "family" and "people first" taglines -They are obsessed with testing -Everything is "super important for the company" -Some projects are poorly managed with almost no managerial oversight or guidance, just a monthly review which only demonstrates they aren't interested in how effective the product is, just how it looks -Artificial deadlines everywhere

    Advice to Management

    Be more honest with yourselves and your employees. No company is "people first" and no company's employees are "family." Not every project is the most important project. Take more ownership over your projects and provide direction for all projects, not just the ones that you know will go somewhere. Alternatively, scrap the projects we all know are a waste of time and company resources.
