I worked at Advent Software full-time (more than 5 years)Pros
Good location with the ability for many to telecommute if necessary.
Good people to work with.
Made a move to the cloud.Cons
There seems to be a lot of non-technical people being put into middle and upper management technical roles.
They smile, bring in breakfast from time-to-time and are well organized hardworking people but may not be the best drivers for your career.Advice to ManagementAdvice
Hire more strong technical people to solidify your move to the cloud.RecommendsPositive OutlookApproves of CEO

- Application Details
I applied online. The process took a week – interviewed at Advent Software.Interview Details
Found Advent's job requisition through Craigslist for a Senior Client Support Specialist, then followed link to Jobvite and applied. About a week later, their contract recruiter sent an email to set up a phone interview for their Global Client Support Specialist position; out of 5 days, 3 possible days for an interview had to be selected.
The interviewer was very precise and seemed to be going off of a list of typical interview questions, like what was my background, what I knew about Advent and its products, what I felt that I could bring to the team.
A few days later, I received another email from the contract recruiter and an in-person interview was scheduled.
Upon arriving, I had to sign-in, place a name tag on my shirt, and eventually met with one of the senior support reps. I was shown parts of the office, and after a brief conversation, we met with another senior support rep. The interview involved more typical information exchange, as well as a couple brain teasers; fill a jug with exactly 4 gallons of water, using only a 3 gallon and a 5 gallon jug, and something about socks, and how many of each color.
Although the interview experience was different than most others, it seems Advent utilizes this format for everyone.Interview Questions
