    Pros

    Services organization is a better place than support. Team is like family in many ways. Some US and some India based employees, but mostly co-operate together really well. After 15+ years, I am happier than ever to work here.

    Cons

    Silos across development teams.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Concentrate MORE on the small clients- they are genuinely our bread and butter!

    Pros

    Great Benefits with the exception of the new Healthcare options.

    Cons

    The company would rather have worker bees who perform sub standard, than employees who take pride in their performance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Go back to a culture that cares about their employees. This will provide results!

    Pros

    The location is nice You don't have to drive all the way out to RTP (although rumor has it that may be changing soon. let's hope not)

    Cons

    there has been lots of change in the last few years with top level leadership. Things have not quite settle down as of yet. Hopefully the company direction will start to solidify soon.
    Also, seems that leadership positions go to outside folks instead of inside hires and promotions. Often, it seems these positions of leadership go to folks with out industry back ground.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Short term gains do not always lead to long term success

    Pros

    Up to date technology, decent salary, co-workers, decent PTO, benefits okay

    Cons

    poorly written applications lead to fun times on client calls, support organization escalates everything that can be handled before escalation, insane work hours

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Overworking employees for a year, saying there won't be a reduction in force, then laying off people and then say it wasn't a reduction, it was a reallocation of workforce doesn't change what happened. Using parts of the employee handbook rules to negate policies, but then ignoring the policy of standard work week being 5 8-hour days with limited overtime is lame too. Dangling promotions year after year to an overworked employees is just sadistic and fails after a while. We finally catch on after a while and don't work as hard causing most of the problems you are attempting to fix (i.e. institutionalized, business-as-usual-everything is broken so why try attitudes). Try treating the worker bees with respect and you might get the changes you seek.

    Pros

    Healthcare IT experience, online learning, travel

    Cons

    The organization doesn't take action for employees that are paid under their minimum salary range. They would rather hire a new employee without experience at a higher rate of pay than someone that has years of experience. If you are looking for a short term opportunity, this is the place to go. If you want a long term job where you can grow financially, look elsewhere.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Knowledgable staff are leaving to go to the competition because employee retention is just a check box on the yearly imperatives. Rebuild the human resource department so it has the ability to balance the relationship between employee and employer. What would you expect your leadership to do if you were paid 30% under your minimum?
