  1.  

    Management issues, aggressive sales activities with little regard for ability to deliver.

    I worked at Cactus Commerce full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    It was a very dynamic environment where you had an opportunity to work with great people and leading-edge technology

    Cons

    There was a concern that management decisions were made which only considered sales objectives without factoring in the effect they would have on the employees who delivered the service.

  2.  

    Poorly managed. Unable to execute a plan

    Pros

    Great people with lots of talent and experience. Get to work with next-generation software development tools.

    Cons

    Constant political battles with Microsoft. Cactus lost every one of them. Managers replaced for speaking the truth. Sweat shop. Deadline-driven approach to product development.

  3.  

    Disorganized Top Management yet they re-org lower layers every 3 months on a whim

    Former Employee - Project Manager in Ottawa, ON (Canada)

    I worked at Cactus Commerce full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    - Good clients
    - Ability to travel
    - wide variety of job experience not just put in 1 small niche

    Cons

    - Top Management disorganized and desperate to repair company and rather than looking at their own short-comings they re-org middle management every 3 months - to the point that other partners joked about it.
    - They are disceptive to their clients of an 'IP' (base Solution) that doesn't exist.
    - It's a little soap opera of drama and the Top level management like it that way.
    - lacks credibility in the industry
    - have a bad reputation of being a people mill with local headhunters

    Not a company to build a career with.
    Real swet shop for developers.

    Pros

    Ok to work for if you are a new grad.

    Cons

    No room to grow, Definitely wrong people getting all the credits and being promoted.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    What are you going to do when Microsoft pulls the plug!
