    Pros

    Was the most enjoyable professional employ I have held to date; I had significant autonomy to utilize and leverage my skills and intellect to help build and develop the business and client relationships. The people are fun and energetic, and a pleasure to work with. Very flexible and very understanding of work/life balance. You get out of Basware what you invest of yourself, by and large.

    Cons

    Career progression is poorly defined at best.

    Advice to Management

    Provide more feedback on the health of the company and define career progression to enable individuals to develop their careers as opposed to simply being employees.

    Pros

    Great people, exciting products, exciting time to be in purchase to pay. Seems poised for better things.

    Cons

    Far lower than average base salaries. Due to HR being in Finland they seem resistant to researching the reality on the ground.

    Advice to Management

    Pay more attention to glassdoor.com and other similar average salary sites. Also don't hamstring your sales leaders who should not be given incentives to delay deals. Caps and minimums on commission do this.

    Often lacking procedures and too many things lack someone to take responsibility for them, difficult to get lasting changes in place.

    Still too small, limited opportunity for advancement, so much going on that sometimes the focus is lost

    Pros

    One of the best companies if you want to work in medium size company in Finland. Makes software that is more competitive than for example Tieto and other large companies.

    Cons

    Not so dynamic environment that in some new companies. Basware is more a large company than a small one. You have to deal with the India option.

    Advice to Management

    India office would be good to help making software to Asian markets. India is not good for cheap software: cheap software is crap.

  10. Good company to work in Chandigarh
