    Pros

    Good atmosphere and lots of opportunity to have your voice heard and enact meaningful change. Great facilities and break room is nice. Everyone gets chances to expand their skills and learn new things. The opportunity tracks tend to get broken up into technical and management, but you can let management know what you interests are they respect them.

    Cons

    No 401K matching and the food offered is often out. Disorganized around software releases, but getting better as time moves on. Work life balance is distorted, but management has recognized that and is making stride to fix it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue with what you are doing. The amount of communication is appreciated and definitely keeps the organization in sync and on the same page.

    Pros

    I'm happy to be working in a great environment, great culture, with smart people you know you can trust and expect to show common values and goals. There's a lot of opportunity to grow at all levels, as long as you are up for the challenge.

    Cons

    My job is pretty specific, so I did not have a lot of on-the-job training. Besides that, I haven't found any inconvenience!

    Former Employee - Trainer in Austin, TX

    I worked at Accruent full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Coworkers are typically very competent and smart people. Some roles allow for rapid career plan movement. Not a bad place to start if you are fresh out of college.

    Cons

    The workers are undervalued and suffer a total lack of empowerment from upper management. The company sells that it is a great place to work on the merits of fun atmosphere, appealing office, flexible schedules and open PTO. However, this comes at a cost of very high expectations for workers to work nights/weekends and base salary as much as $40k below market average. Newbies advised: there are a million tech companies with nice breakrooms, fun events, and smart people that will pay you what you're worth, not half the industry standard (especially you, developers!).

    Lots of responsibilities and organizational changes, not a lot of $ or rewards

    I worked at Accruent full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Friendly place to work. A pretty good culture that has somewhat declined over recent months. You'll have a lot of responsibilities, leading towards a lot of experience.

    Cons

    They hire young inexperienced employees and pay them under market value. Even when an employee has proven their worth to the company, they'll still try to pay you as little as possible. No 401k matching, they say that the "little" bonus you get makes up for no 401k matching...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Actually identify and train middle managers instead of hiring more C level executives and underpaid HPLEs. Pay market rates, if you don't you're going to lose talent to other great tech companies that pay and treat their employees better.

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I have been working at Accruent full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Hiring based as much on potential as on experience. Good place to get in the door if you're fresh out of school or changing careers/industries. Good opportunity to move between departments if you have other interests. Rapid growth and overall company appears to be stable for the long term. Medium-sized company with a lot of "corporate" benefits but not so big that you completely get lost in the shuffle. Good coworkers. Overall, it's good experience to have on the resume.

    Cons

    Pay is well below market rate for most positions and there's no 401K match - the year-end "bonus" doesn't really fill that gap either, and the general attitude seems to be take it or leave it. Advancement & reward for experienced employees is much more limited. A lot of variation between operation of departments/product lines so some positions offer much less potential for success.

    I worked at Accruent full-time

    Pros

    Accruent is a great place to start your career or start a new phase in your career. You are given plenty of opportunity and responsibility based upon whether you can handle it, not tenure.

    Cons

    The salary starts out low and typically doesn't track with increased responsibilities. Hours can be routinely quite long as the roadmap is aggresive compared to resourcing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work to recognise and reward performers closer to market rates.

    Pros

    The corporate culture is pretty good and the executives are more easily accessible than at other companies.

    Cons

    Don't expect to get paid well and there has been a lot of "churn" since the new COO came aboard.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More transparency into the organization, especially when it pertains to management changes.
