    I worked at Daegis full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great people to work with. Everyone works hard and parties hard.

    Cons

    After the merger, upper management does not know what to do at all. They fired all the sales guys and then complained that there's no work for the rest of the employee.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't take over a company that you don't know how to run.

    I have been working at Daegis full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Only Pro was that Company was located in the San Francisco City.
    Discounted movie tickets

    Cons

    Upper Management decided to close the San Francisco and New York office and gave 25 days notice to all employees to find new Job because the company could not pay the rent in City.
    They could have moved to a small office around the city but guess company had better plans for in Texas.
    No Motivation in the company. People come to office late and leave early and nobody cares.
    Worst of all no Coffee machine. You can buy coffee downstairs.
    No Employee can plan a long term committed role at the company.
    Technology used in development is outdated and 2-3 years behind the current trend in the bay area.
    Please stay away if you are planning for something long-term

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management keeps changing all the time. Please plan the financials better to locations can be kept open for a long time.

    I have been working at Daegis full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The employees here are the best ever. Talented, loyal to clients. Loyal to each other. Pull together across departments to get things done. Despite management. Clients: your case will succeed despite the company.

    Cons

    Overworked, under-appreciated, under-paid, scared. Afraid of being fired or laid off, everyone looking for work elsewhere but no time. Bonuses cut - used to be a BIG percentage of pay.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Talk to us. WITH us. Not AT us, loudly. Abrasively. Saying everything is great and to just buck up.

    I have been working at Daegis full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    If you want to move to Texas, this place is for you. Otherwise, if you can get into the Gupta division, you might have some hope.

    Cons

    Flawed strategic vision, minimal knowledge of software industry, unable to execute business plans, lack of sales, lack of senior leadership, poor middle management. Morale is non-existent outside of Texas, toxic culture. Hiring is based on a good-old-boy network that consistently hires poor performers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Abdicate. Let someone with a clue start over fresh.

    Sales organization is in shambles

    Former Employee - Manager in San Francisco, CA
    Former Employee - Manager in San Francisco, CA

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

    Pros

    The people that actually execute on behalf of the clients are great. Talented folks that work long hours, often time with minimal upside.

    Cons

    Sales staff would do better selling used cars.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hold sales accountable, why are people who constantly miss quotas not only kept on staff, but promoted?

    Pros

    Interesting Work, good pay, good benefits, get to work with variety of clients in many industries and in different countries. Exposure to different technologies and applications.

    Cons

    Downturn in revenue and profit has led to constant reorganization and layoffs. Tend to hire management based on past friendships as opposed to actual skill and capabilities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat employees with respect and try to be more pro-active in understanding skills and value of employees to the organization.
