    I worked at Courion full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Culture and people are good, and some of the managers are good. I lucked out and had a great manager.

    Cons

    They started a sales team for a new product, the product was never released and people lost their jobs or positions. Talk about putting the cart before the horse. They also over hired across the board and then when things got tough they freaked and laid off a bunch of people. From what I heard this pattern is common for the CEO. He gets ambitious about new products, and then he steers away and focuses on something else. Unfortunately this means people lose their jobs. CEO also micro manages to the detriment of the company, it may be time for him to step aside.

    Marketing folks were constantly getting slammed because nobody knew who Courion was, even though they've been around since 1996!

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

    Pros

    Courion has some great people and the management team tries to encourage a good work/life balance. Compensation and benefits are on par with other major software companies in the area.

    Cons

    Management focuses more on trying to come up with a new magic bullet product, rather than devoting attention to resolving customer issues.
    There are some "lifers" who have been with the company way past their "sell-by" date. As a result, it's difficult to push new ideas if you're not one of the in-crowd.

    Pros

    Bagel Wednesdays - Relaxed hours come and go as you please.....

    Cons

    Horrible culture, horrible company dynamic, micromanaged, male dominating company, no ideas are taken from lower level employees, only the same old ideas from the same senior employees that have worked here for years...sad company to work for with nothing fresh, or hip and happening with todays market, cultures, and dynamics.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    LISTEN, TAKE ADVICE, ASK EACH EMPLOYEE FOR ONE THING THAT NEEDS TO CHANGE AND EACH DAY APPLY IT IN SOME WAY. STOP THINKING ABOUT OR PORTRAYING HOW MUCH BETTER YOU ARE THAN EVERYONE ELSE BECAUSE WE ALL PUT OUR PANTS ON THE SAME WAY, ONE LEG AT A TIME. EVERYDAY PEOPLE DONT CARE WHAT ROLE YOU HAVE IN A COMPANY JUST THAT YOU ARE A GOOD PERSON. TAKE A HINT!

    Adquate job at a software company but no soul. If you are looking for a solid paycheck it's a great place.

    CEO is very involved in everyone's work. It would be a good idea if he could allow others to lead and make decisions that stick.

    Pros

    Excellent work culture with great, friendly and helping colleagues who makes you feel at home and that sense of team game is worth realizing. There would be a few losers who cannot stop cribbing each Organization they are associated with. Apart from that an experience of working in a Product Based Organization which pays you handsomely too is one should not loose out on. The mantra is Work Smart and enjoy your time out here.

    Cons

    Growing and doing pretty good technically but need more attention and perfect people to do the Job and scope for improvement and the learning curve is unending for any Organization.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep Growing and Putting in the best efforts as all have been doing till now.

    Pros

    Salary is good but you will get more in other company with better job with work life balance

    Cons

    No job security instant fire I have seen people are fired.
    No technical growth. repeat of works.
    Now days work pressure increases due to the management changes.
    Management is not helpful. I am observing that one of my friend left Courion and to get his PF . He asked Hr manager,VP of HR & Director but no one is helping.
    Also I heard that one of the previous employee file case against Courion for his PF
    Lots of commitments from higher management but nothing happens.
    Even now days employees are getting the variable pay (<25%)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please help to the ex employee and take care of current employes
    give right commitments instead of commitment with no result.
