    Pros

    Great company culture, especially in Melbourne (HQ) and San Bruno/ San Francisco (regional HQ); great product that's very competitive in the market place; management who really care about employees (starts with the CEO)

    Cons

    It's a publicly traded company that still has remnants of a start-up culture, so lack of structure sometimes and requires you to think things through; company still needs to figure out how to offer stock options or equity to employees

    Advice to Management

    make compensation and incentives more structured and consistent across

    Pros

    Great senior management, culture and people. They believe in a good work life balance and provide great vacation benefits.

    Cons

    They do not pay their employee's well enough for the bay area therefore have a high turnover.

    Advice to Management

    Pay people more

    Pros

    Decent salary, free drinks, weekly Friday beer and wine and some very good people.

    Cons

    Australian centric. In the San Bruno office, if you weren't Australian then you obviously didn't know anything. Untrained middle management allowed to do whatever they want. Was told I was hired for my experience and knowledge but was never allowed to use it. I had to do everything exactly as my manager had always done it. NO changes allowed. Also, medical benefits were astronomical!

    Advice to Management

    Try bottom up reviews. Listen to what the lower levels are saying about the management.

    Pros

    Aconex is an employee focused client driven organizations whose management staff provides an open door policy. Aconex provides a safe and healthy work environment while making sure it’s employees is free to excel at their required duties.

    Cons

    With any global company fostering team is tough. I would like to more instances where the teams can all get together to share ideas and strategize.

    Pros

    Company has a great product and is focused on results. The culture is fast paced and aggressive but still has an eye on work/life balance. People here really walk their talk.

    Cons

    Not too many cons at this company - the only downside is that the headquarters is in Australia and sometimes it is hard to coordinate things with the time difference from the US.

    I have been working at Aconex full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    A great company attitude borne out of the Australian "get on with it" culture. Employees are empowered and encouraged to innovate across all areas of the business. Through the company, I have personally been given substantial professional (and life) experience across Australia, Europe, Middle East and the US.

    Cons

    You need to be highly independent and self-motivated, which does not suit everyone

    Advice to Management

    With countless opportunities for career growth all over the world, there could be more internal communication of these opportunities across the organization


  8. Great company culture with opportunity for career growth and travel

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

    Pros

    Aconex has a flat management structure encouraging all employees to innovate and put forward suggestions. As a rapidly growing, international company there are lots opportunities for development. For me, the best part about this company are the people I work with - A great mix of personalities & cultures. All are driven to succeed and work together to help grow the business The company pays fairly with bonus structures allowing all teams to earn more based on performance and the work-life balance/flexibility is great.

    Cons

    Aconex sells a unique niche product set. As with any large deal the sales cycles can be long and complex (though the payoff is usually well worth it!)

    Pros

    Awesome product that is very competitive to other offerings. Startup-type atmosphere where ideas are welcome no matter what your title. Employees are urged to try new things and use career expertise to make decisions.

    Cons

    As with any company, it is difficult to put regional experience aside when breaking in to new markets. Not necessarily a "con" but difficult nonetheless.

    Pros

    good technology, stable, customers like it (when they buy)

    Cons

    US market isn't mature enough for the solution Aconex is selling. Management doesn't want to invest in building what the market needs. Very passive aggressive management team.

    Advice to Management

    Clean house starting with D**. Not sure what that guy does other than cause people to quit.

    Pros

    - Great place to work with a fantastic work culture - Motivating environment that makes you feel like your contributing to the company's success - Great management who are open, down to earth and informative about the direction of the company. - A great friday night drinks culture where you have the chance to meet and chat to people from other departments, learn whats going on, share ideas and get to know them. - Regular social events, perpetuated by the best office manager i've ever had.

    Cons

    - None worth mentioning. When ever there's an issue or view that something could be improved there's usually already an awareness of the problem, and likely steps already in progress to solve it.
