    Pros

    - Great talented coworkers - Free lunch - Benefits

    Cons

    - Low pay. Salary only, no more hourly pay. - Strict time sheet, everyone with salary must work at least 40 hours a week. You must clock out if lunch goes over an hour. - CIO who markets himself as a caring mentor. He feeds off of praise and talks way too much about himself. You will quickly realize how selfish and micromanaging he is. - False promises of growth or promotion. - Family business.

    Advice to Management

    Nothing will change unless the CEO cares.

    Pros

    Good work and life balance. Nice co-workers.

    Cons

    Not perfect place for young men since the structure don't supply a good way to learn, improve and get promoted. Operated and managed like old traditional industry company. Have to log your work time sounds don't even like a tech company.

    Advice to Management

    If you just want to keep your business running as how it runs for the last 20 years. Your best employees will leave since you don't need them and they don't get the best opportunities they deserve.

    Pros

    -Interfacing with the stream of young, enthusiastic and frankly, gullible talent who are excited to work for a tech company. -Literally nothing.else.

    Cons

    -Family run and operated--don't challenge "the fam". -The CIO, who has managed to fool everyone with his supposed "skills". He's lost over 25% of his direct reports in the last year. Hmmmm...tell you something... -Stubborn insistence on clinging "what the (sadly) deceased founder would have wanted". She was a brilliant lady and was smart enough to make drastic (needed) changes when warranted. -While much of the user base are rabid fans, the tech is 5 years behind everyone else in the industry. Real product management is non-existent. - HR---what HR????

    Advice to Management

    Clean house at the V and D level.

    Pros

    - Nice, young co-workers--truly awesome people considering the company - Free lunch (not very healthy and a limited rotation) - Good training program - Casual Fridays - 7 AM - 4 PM work day, if you consider that a bonus

    Cons

    - Wearing a tie to work Mon-Thurs to do what is basically call center work - HORRIBLE ATMOSPHERE FOR WOMEN -- old school management does not know what constitutes gender discrimination and is guilty of it fairly often - Fairly strict rules considering the work isn't rocket science - Rules are broken based on favoritism and politicking

    Advice to Management

    Start treating Sales with respect. The turnover is awful and most of the negative reviews on this site are from former sales team members. Also, hire someone to fix the gender inequality at the company. Don't just point to a few women in leadership roles and say your job is done.

    Pros

    Laserfiche provides you with tremendous opportunities to break into the tech industry. You dive right in and will be presented with opportunities that might take years to get at other companies. It's a young company with some wonderful aspects.

    Cons

    Management isn't listening anymore. Development is in an isolation bubble, but many other departments are being restructured for the worse. Changes started a year ago, and they are leading to the ruin of a good company. I went from having a job with tremendous opportunity, respect from my manager, and good work-life balance to having a job working twice as much for half the respect.

    Advice to Management

    Wake up. Treat your employees with the respect they deserve. Bring back the trust, the freedom, the independence and the respect of two years ago. Let go of some of the micro-managing policies and put forward and environment of mutual respect. If you respect your employees they will perform better than if you watch their every move.

    Pros

    Great way to get experience fast. You learn a lot about tech and corporate work, but not everything is applicable once you leave.

    Cons

    Laserfiche operates unlike any other company because upper management still has a tendency to operate like a family business: micro managing and not trusting people outside the family to do good work is a huge issue. Company lacks real leaders.

    Advice to Management

    Put people in charge who understand the value of good workers. The open attitude that everyone can be replaced is killing moral. Value your employees.

    Pros

    Freedom to interface with C-level contacts immediately. You get a baptism by fire with this company. Management in the sales departments are quality people.

    Cons

    Pay doesn't scale at the same pace as the uptick in responsibilities you take on. Free lunch is not very appetizing.

    Advice to Management

    Let the people with the right vision and drive take the reigns of the company. The management in the sales department will take the company to new heights. Not as keen on senior leadership in other areas of the business.

    Pros

    -Free Lunch (If you can stomach it) -Great Health Benefits (Starting after 3 months "probation") -Some really nice people working there -Great place to start right out of college to gain experience for your resume

    Cons

    -Awful management -If you don't play the politics game you have no chance at success, which is irrelevant based on your performance -Silly rules like no paper cups, lunch must be taken from 12-1, etc. -No flexible hours, only 2 weeks of vacation per year -0 Employee perks or events -Treated like a child rather than an employee -No chance at advancement unless you are somehow related to the CEO of the company -Extremely high turnover (about 3-4 people per month quit/get fired in a company of about 200 people) -Compensation is quite low compared to similar job positions at similar companies

    Advice to Management

    Pointless to give them advice as they will never listen. Every time a consultant is hired to advise, they are fired a week later. This company is propped up by its re-sellers and their government clients renewing their licensing fees every year, it is on a downward spiral.
