    I have been working at RES Software full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    With Al Monserrat as new CEO and continued growth of IT Store, excitement is growing at RES Software. RES has a large opportunity in front of us to help lead an IT shift to be more user centric. With the right technology, right leadership and a ripe industry, I believe there is a lot of opportunity for RES to grow. Customers share this excitement and enjoy working with RES and using the technology. There are continually product release updates which make customers happy to see new advancements and reaction to their product requests.

    Cons

    Growth and new leadership can bring growing pains and sometimes employee turnover. Change is hard and at times can bring uncertainty before there is full clarity around future direction.

    Advice to Management

    Market dynamics are constantly changing and I believe RES has an opportunity to capture the opportunity. However, decisions need to be made quickly and have bandwidth to execute to avoid missing the opportunity in front of us.

    Knowledge Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    No Offer

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at RES Software.

    Interview

    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.
