I have been working at RES Software full-time (more than a year)RecommendsPositive OutlookApproves of CEORecommendsPositive OutlookApproves of CEO
Good compensation package; a lot of opportunities withing the company and help with growth within the company; They use their own software; people are willing and eager to collaborate between departments
Current strategy might need some more foundation, too much changes at the last possible minute. Hopefully the new CEO will be able to steer to a path of structured growing of the company.
Advice to Management
Create a strategy and stick to it and make sure that all departments have time to prepare. This will increase the quality of the message delivered both internally as well as externally
Getting an Interview
Getting an Interview
I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at RES Software.
This was a long process. It involved an initial phone interview and then an online personality test. That was followed by 3 in-person and 2 Skype interviews with senior management. I was successful with all of that and was told I would receive an offer letter. While waiting to receive the letter, past zero hour, I was told that the CEO suddenly recognized the importance of this position and wanted to interview me -- but that he'd be out for a week. At this point, a red flag went off. If the CEO did not trust the judgement of all the senior staff and the hiring process put in place, it seemed like an omen that a lot of good work and effort could also be derailed at the whim of the CEO. Since I was fortunate to be otherwise employed, I declined to continue this process.
