    Good place to work with excellent benefits and great company culture

    Systems Administrator (Former Employee)
    Lawrenceville, GA

    Pros-Great location (Georgia Sugarloaf campus)
    -Good bonus potential
    -Training opportunities
    -Good corporate structure
    -Great benefits
    -Beautiful campus
    -Free onsite fitness facility
    -Excellent work/life balance
    -Excellent on call pay

    Cons-Everything in the corporate world takes time. It is no different here.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe one thing that was missing here was some type of group outing. Either a monthly or quarterly event would be nice. It would help to keep morale high.

    Good Place to work

    ProsVery solid place to work, I would recommend it. .Typical enterprise environment with lots of processes to follow. It is better than not having them.

    ConsFrustrating when there is a shifting of features, end of life and end of sale announcements that do not align with customer needs.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    They will take good care of you

    Software Engineer (Former Employee)
    Lawrenceville, GA

    ProsStable company that will take good care of you as long as you "take care" of them (i.e. don't do anything bad)

    ConsTypical large company - slow-moving, lots of politics, and 1-2 reorgs every year - so you'll go through many different managers

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet to personally know your employees - they are human, not just worker robots. My favorite managers were the ones who actually cared that you had a family and know that a job is just a job.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
