    Pros

    Decent salary and good commission. The people in sales are good and it's a good group to work with. Most Management has an open door policy and willing to help.

    Cons

    Poor communication between some of the executives to the sales and entry level employees. For a small company this should be better.

    I worked at Datawatch full-time

    Pros

    Small company atmosphere. Great people.

    Cons

    Benefits are bad. No 401K match

    Advice to Management

    Think about the smaller employees who do not have stock and get a 401K match

    Promising company atmosphere, but not very fulfilling.

    I have been working at Datawatch full-time

    Pros

    Fast-paced. Growing analytics market. Some good people.

    Cons

    No one seems to care what anyone else is doing. No performance reviews. Not a lot of thank yous.

    Advice to Management

    Ask your team how they're doing once and a while. Get feedback. Get out of your own heads.

    I have been working at Datawatch full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Management is not afraid to try new things. Most of the management team is highly experienced, has been with the company less than 3 years, and has turned this company around. It's not as difficult to get things done in Datawatch as it is in other companies in this space like IBM, SAP, Oracle etc. Datawatch has attracted some of the most successful and sought after technical and sales professionals in this market. Just look at the stock price over the past 2 years. They're doing something right! Michael Morrison is the best CEO and visionary that I have ever worked with. The strength of Michael's leadership, and the team that he has assembled, is what is turning this great company around. Datawatch has a large and loyal customer-base and a solid and relevant software solution.

    Cons

    Datawatch is a great small company but you don't have the resources or name-recognition that you get in larger companies. Datawatch needs greater market presence and better analyst coverage so that they are considered more often in competitive cycles.

    Advice to Management

    I am concerned about Datawatch becoming too top-heavy too quickly. The revenue to spend ratio needs to be more favorable. Enforce integrity in everything!

    I worked at Datawatch full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great customer base. Benefits are ok to good. I was treated fair and with respect. Great product development team and even better support for customers.

    Cons

    The office vibe is kind of like a town hall job. Old Exec (one no longer there) had no idea what the product did and how it worked.

    Advice to Management

    if it aint broke dont fix it.

    Pros

    Entrepreneurial spirit, good products, great team. Moving fast to develop innovative software to create new markets and meet with new customer requirements. On the good way for a future success

    Cons

    Too much pressure from shareholders that lead to short term decisions taken too fast to give not enough time to the company to establish a long term strategy and establish strong business bases . Lack of success in current sales

    Advice to Management

    Think more about company an employee strength than about shareholders

    Pros

    Some great people, a really good core product and freedom to get on with want you think you need to do.

    Cons

    Trying to be far more than they are and therefore not achieving it. Products other than the core are houses of cards (glass ones). Freedom is great but the maniacs and power mongers have as much as you do. New management is getting even more top heavy than the old one.

    Advice to Management

    Stop drinking your own Kool-Aid

    Pros

    There are no pros, they are running the company down to nothing. Check the stock and history before you make a decision to work there. Most of the current employees would never be hired at a regular job.

    Cons

    They are in constant layoffs since two years ago. Most of the people there couldn't be hired at a "real company." The support staff they have left don't have the education to handle support situations.

    Advice to Management

    Close down.
