    Consolidate management tools

    Pros

    Some great co-workers. I work with people who are really smart and have very high standards. They just have more than they can manage

    Cons

    Always doing a job for two people. I don't always get credit for the work that I do or appropriate compensation.

    Advice to Management

    Watch the budget cuts. Overworked people get burned out. Stop trying to get by and make the appropriate investments sooner than later.

    Pros

    They have solid API technology. Lots of flexibility to work from home. Some travel internationally. I was lucky enough to have the ears of Executives so was able to suggest changes that they acted on.

    Cons

    Death by process and power point. To many processes to get simple things done. Very confusing organization structure and seems to have a re-org every 3 months. Poor product quality, poor professional services. Axway has lots of customers that are unhappy. Comp Plan was deceptive. Its geared so you don't make money unless you hit all of your quota. Ask for a comp plan before you accept a job offer here.

    Advice to Management

    Cut the process down, improve product quality, reduce meetings and innovate. Improve culture.


  6. Lots of flexibility, you make your own adventure

    Pros

    Flexible hours and some remote opportunities. Many US employees will get opportunity to visit Paris and Eastern Europe. New CEO is providing a lot more visibility, which is great - he also seems to be bringing a nice dose of fun :). Product portfolio is being consolidated and Axway is heavily focused on improving the usability and accessibility of products. Many customers are excited to get involved in providing feedback on products. Company is focusing more on employee retention and attraction than in the past. Not a lot of political and personal drama like there can be in US-only companies. Have gotten the opportunity to work on many cool projects, as well as identifying other areas for improvement and receiving support on these areas.

    Cons

    Can be hard to get to know people at first.

    Pros

    Some great people who desperately want to do the right things, and the right things are starting to happen. It is a smaller company so career opportunities can be limited, but there is also a great deal of opportunity for the right people with the right knowledge and approach. Very good on work life balance. No expectations of weekend working. Work hard during the week but then step away and come back fresh!

    Cons

    A lot of cultural baggage to deal with that is slowing the company down, but that is recognized and slowly being dealt with.

    Advice to Management

    Keep improving! Focus on driving change through and ensuring that change actually happens!

    Pros

    Flexible work hours, kind team at the middle mgmt/junior employee level, no dress code, health insurance was good, offices are nice, free soda.

    Cons

    Salary is awful, and they don't give anyone at mid mgmt or junior level anymore than a 2% raise every 5 years. Mgmt will give you a great performance review and not give you a cent and bonus' are pathetic. There are too many VP's and Directors with fancy titles doing nothing but not responding to emails. Women won't make it past Director level (there isn't a single woman with a VP or C level title in the company of 1100 employees) not modern thinkers, stuck in old school French thought process.

    Advice to Management

    Retire

    Pros

    - Very good engineering teams, good opportunity for learning in-depth technologies. This is however not in all R&D teams (see Cons). - Awesome enterprise products and big customers that can get you excited (excluding those PSO-heavy monstrosities)

    Cons

    - Some of the R&D teams fail to deliver with quality for years cause they follow the same old execution patterns. Instead of reorganizing them, the company keeps beefing them up for the sake of productive (smaller) teams. - Hypocritical management. Second-Third level of management does NOT care about the employees - they see them as numbers. No attempt to keep employees and/or knowledge within the company. - Lots of attrition in some of the R&D centers, which has been going on for years (the only ones who stay are the higher management in those offices - executives don't seem to care, since no productive action has been taken so far). - The hierarchical culture of "I cannot share my opinion because it contradicts my manager's opinion" is killing the company. - Company sends employees who don't speak English to seminars, workshops and trainings lead in English, spending thousands for travel and accommodation, and then complaining and cutting the budget for meaningful things.

    Advice to Management

    Look at which team's deliver and which don't. Promote the good practices of the one's that deliver. Don't look at the reports that the "failing team's management" gives you. That's why the company keeps failing, and is forced to close offices in order to save its budget. Get rid of the old management that makes the same mistakes over and over again.

    Pros

    Good work life balance. You don't need too work long hours and you won't want to because you will have no motivation. Salaries are okay.

    Cons

    If you are not French you are nothing but dirt. You can never advance. Technology is antiquated. Product management is a total disaster. Complete idiots.

    Advice to Management

    Get out of our country and go back to France.
