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

    Pros

    The company is using new and exciting technology for it's product line. They've invested in all products and people and I see some great capabilities coming soon. The leadership is technology focused and have a strong drive to deliver new products and features to the market. I have access to training resources and projects to apply learnings. The culture in engineering is collaborative and I'm learning from my peers and contributing daily.

    Cons

    There is a strong drive to deliver products - this comes at a cost of workload at times but it's similar to other companies I've worked for in the software industry. Benefits could be better. Corporate is old school and moves slow. The nerf wars can be chaotic.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to provide better benefits.

    Pros

    In Bellevue we operate a bit differently. It feels like a startup.
    One we also have most of the technology senior leadership here so we're well-represented for not being at HQ.
    We have regular morale events.
    People are generally pretty friendly and dedicated to the cause
    I'm generally happy with my base pay

    Cons

    We have those short-walled cubes and are pretty packed in
    Not a lot of perks like MSFT or Goog or FB.
    Corp IT management is disorganized
    Benefits are just ok

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I'm not very clear on how promotions happen even though I manage a team
    I'd love a healthcare plan option that's not high-deductible

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

    Pros

    I work in the Bellevue office where most of the core engineering is located. The team has a start-up environment feel - everything moves very fast. Smart / dedicated engineering team. Teams and individual are empowered to do the right thing, and held accountable for the quality of their work / contribution. Leadership is doing a good job of balancing / prioritizing investment in in-market product v. the vNext Saas offerings.

    Cons

    As with any start-up, the culture and processes is work-in-progress - needs to mature (in the right ways). We are "agile" - which translates to "we're not always sure what we are doing... but let's hurry up". The office is a bit out of the way (in Eastgate), bit drabby and getting crowded. There are way too many contractors v. FTE which impacts the office culture (and long term success).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more engaged with the people and culture - don't be so distant.

    Pros

    Interesting technology stack, If your interested in the hospitality business, the work in Bellevue spans the breadth of the companies Product offerings.

    Cons

    Zero work life balance.
    Leadership in Bellevue are all about covering their own incompetence and will throw anyone under the bus to maintain the illusion.
    Lots of turnover
    Terrible benefits.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fire the leadership team in Bellevue. Stop treating the staff like you own them. Own your mistakes. The folks in Georgia should pay better attention given the amount of money is being spent.

    Doesn't Recommend
