    I have been working at SumTotal full-time (More than 5 years)


    Plenty of work to do! There is room to grow. They are very family oriented. They have been extremely understanding of special circumstances that exist in my life. I would not have been able to keep a job elsewhere with what is going on at home right now.


    Teh pay is a little on the low side but the other benefits more than make up for it.

    Advice to Management

    Contimue to reward those that deserve it. But, be careful of rewarding those that are opportunistic and do not really contribute

    Software Engineer Interview

    Average Interview


    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at SumTotal in June 2015.


    I was contacted by a recruiter who found my resume online. The position was for a senior software engineer. Talked with the recruiter and everything sounded alright. Then I was scheduled to speak with the hiring manager to have an interview. The process as explained to me was an initial screen with the recruiter, a phone interview with the hiring manager, and then an interview on site. My first phone interview, the manager called me earlier to reschedule, which I did. But then he never called after re-scheduling. And then when he finally did call, it was a totally different name/person than who I was supposed to be interviewing with. I thought I had done fairly well on this process. I then got a call back the next day from the recruiter who said after talking to me, they feel like I'm a fit for the mid level software engineer position, which I was okay with. They said they were working on creating the position and talking it over with the team and manager and would get back to me. So I waited a few days, and heard nothing. I emailed them back the start of the following week and the recruiter said she would have an answer by the end of the week. Well, a week later I emailed them back to see if they had an update, and nothing. No reply at all. From the first time the manager didn't call me when he was supposed to, was an indicator that their accountability sucks. And It's also very unprofessional to leave someone hanging mid process.
