    Excellent product, stable company, questionable HR practices, difficulty adapting to international markets.

    RATIONAL outclasses all its competitors in terms of product and service. At senior management level, there is no real time off due to the nature of the job, but this is not unique to RATIONAL. Remuneration is on par with competition, but foremost you get to work with the absolute best the industry has to offer. Excellent training programs are offered to sales staff and many competitors actually try to recruit from RATIONAL due to their excellent training.


    It is a top down German management culture allowing little room for personal initiative. You either love it or hate it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the excellent work with regard to product development and sales training. "Think global, act local". Adapt your sales process internationally where necessary and try to respect cultural differences.
