    I worked at Nemetschek Vectorworks full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Excellent benefits, talented employees, tuition reimbursement, fair pay. It was obvious that HR and the CEO were trying to make the company an enjoyable place to work. Company is successful and has experienced continual growth year over year.

    Cons

    The company has basically two halves, the Engineering side and the Sales & Marketing side. If you are on the Sales & Marketing side, you have to deal with the CMO, who can be a nightmare. He is the epitome of a micromanager and does not trust his managers, does not empower his team to make decisions, does not use standard means of corporate communication and project management tools, and rarely gives positive feedback on projects. In addition, he seeks to motivate his team by fear and coercion and is generally disrespectful, especially towards women. It's hard to accurately describe just how miserable the people were when I was there and I hear it hasn't gotten any better. As a result, the mood was tense and talented people were leaving the company in frustration or were getting fired because the environment had such a detrimental effect on their performance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My advice is put a layer of management between the CMO and have him involved at the strategic level, but force him to let his managers manage and execute projects at the tactical level. Also hold him accountable and force transparency by making him use the project management software that the rest of the department does. He needs to undergo leadership training. There also needs to be an anonymous way for employees to share their frustrations because people do not feel that they can go to HR and have their opinions held in confidence. At some point the company is going to have to decide how many people they are going to let walk out the door before they make a change to how that department is run.
