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

Software Configuration Manager (Former Employee)
Gatineau, QC (Canada)

I worked at Cactus Commerce full-time for more than a year

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

ConsThere 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.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Poorly managed. Unable to execute a plan

Software Developer (Former Employee)
Gatineau, QC (Canada)

I worked at Cactus Commerce full-time for more than a year

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

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

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

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

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

I worked at Cactus Commerce full-time for 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

Advice to Senior Managementsee Cons

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

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

Software Configuration Manager/Build and Release Engineer (Former Employee)
Ottawa, ON (Canada)

I worked at Cactus Commerce

ProsOk to work for if you are a new grad.

ConsNo room to grow, Definitely wrong people getting all the credits and being promoted.
