    I have been working at Basware full-time

    Pros

    The Basware brand is recognized as the global leader in P2P solutions. It is an exciting growth organization, and truly a wonderful and challenging place to work. Basware has a great company culture, and attracts bright, talented and dedicated employees. I thoroughly enjoy working with my colleagues and the executive management team!

    Cons

    I've only been at Basware for a couple of months...and haven't identified any 'cons' at this point.

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

    Pros

    You probably can't find another job with same degree of freedom - management at all levels really believe in you, so no micro management here. Team spirit is very high and my colleagues always seems to have time when I ask for help. People often work from home Monday, Thursday and Friday which of course reduces the weekly commuting

    Cons

    Training is not prioritized very high in Basware and especially training in software products outside Basware is difficult to get approved

    Excellent Leaders in the US. They are very supportive and provide excellent guidance. They genuinely care about the employees. Excellent flexibility and benefits.

    Cons

    There are always growing pains but management in the US is working hard to correct those pains.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to support the employees.

    I worked at Basware full-time (More than 3 years)

    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.

    Pros

    Good work environment, many opportunities within this global company. On the leading edge of P2P processes and global e-commerce networks, now adding Financing Services to the global portfolio. Dedicated employees are the norm. We bleed Basware "Blue"

    Cons

    Benefits have been streamlined last few years. Heavy Finnish influence from culture through senior management, should be more global influence. Silo mentality holds us back at times.

    Advice to Management

    Simplify the incentive models to a single model to remove silo mentality. The complex incentive models are tough to calculate, they change each year. In some cases, they tend to end up as dis-incentives. Add a stock option incentives to engage us all in the same direction/goals as one company.

    None so far. Still looking.
