    In a perpetual downward spiral

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Atlanta, GA

    ProsMiddle management supportive of employees
    Decent benefits
    Good co-workers for the most part
    Decent computer hardware
    No strict dress code

    ConsIncompetent senior management
    Incompetent sales/marketing department
    Nepotism
    Lack of focus about products and services offered
    Lack of coordination and consistency between offices
    In-fighting between offices
    Lack of communication about company status

    Advice to Senior ManagementIt's time for senior management and sales/marketing to be replaced.
    Too many good people have lost jobs there, while highly-paid executives who perform no useful purpose are still employed there.
    Edgenet should have done a better job in the transition to eliminate references to "Big Hammer" and get systems/processes standardized across the company.
    There are multiple development tracking systems, and if a particular office didn't want to use a system being used by another office, it wasn't questioned.
    It may be too late for this company to recover from its past.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    If any company ever needed to re-invent itself, here is the poster-child!

    (Former Employee) Atlanta, GA

    ProsThey have a couple good ideas and a data stranglehold on Home Depot and Lowes; if you can wait long enough, a good company may acquire them.

    ConsThey basically have only two major customers, Home Depot and Lowes; each of these customers appear very disgruntled with Edgenet and Big Hammer. Cooperation between Edgenet and Big Hammer is precarious at best; even though Edgenet acquired Big Hammer; they do not seem to be in charge. Edgenet has no solid development methodology and releases software directly from development because they do not have a testing environment, this always results in "melt-down" conditions when new software versions are released.

    Advice to Senior ManagementYou aren't the innovators that you think you are, anybody can build a flat database; stailize your business relationships with qulaity software products and new releases, top notch service and professionalism.

    Edgenet Product Knowledge Engineer

    Product Knowledge Engineer (Former Employee) Brentwood, TN

    ProsPerks are ok, they feed you pretty well and throw good parties and picnics. Good bug report system. IT support is good and attends to IT tech calls pretty face, Programmers have nice equipment (monitors, PCs Ect.). Takes care of its employees when employees are traveling for the company(Nice Hotel, generous food allowance, nice Car). Upper Management treats employees pretty well in passing. Decent work environment, nice clean newer desks and workspaces. Gives employees bonuses based on company performance, and also a very small Christmas bonus. Stock Options are not great, but decent. Sponsors Toastmasters and other programs for some employees.

    ConsMinimum working week 45-50 hours, No True Lunch Hour. Working weekends and evenings at home is expected. No room for growth. Micromanaging is the principal management style. Basically a Cube Farm where programmers punch out proprietary code for 10+ hours a day. No learning opportunities, this proprietary technology traps employees with the company because no other outfit uses its technology. Work environment forces a "Cut throat" mentality where all other employees are against each other, management promotes this to increase competition. Dress code for programmers, shirt and slacks mandatory. Improper or ill performing working tools and software. Terrible place to work overall.

    Advice to Senior ManagementAllow innovation, and promote better people. Retain Talent. Get rid of the Director of Services.

    A promising company once, now in accelerating into disaster.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsGood work life balance
    Great benefits
    Competitive pay
    Great co-workers

    Leaving aside the sr. management executives, the overall employee base is talented, professional and fun to work with. Company provides very decent benefits and perks.

    ConsNo professional career growth
    Bleak long term prospects
    Senior Management team lacks strategy, focus and execution skills
    Nepotism

    Company had great promise, very good employees, great customers and a viable strategy.
    The lack of focus, inability of the sr. management team to keep in check nepotism and placing higher stakes and wrong bets has brought it to its end run.

    Customers are leaving, employees are leaving, some have been cut off while retaining very highly paid executives means their burn rate is going to destroy the value and the company soon.

    Advice to Senior ManagementIts time for entire sr. management team to leave. Get in fresh competent and skilled team

    Once a good Company to work for but...

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsFast paced environment, lots of change. Little time to get bored. There is the opportunity to get exposed to a variety of new technologies.

    ConsPoor decisions by senior management. Employees are afraid to speak up for fear of retribution. The only employees who are valued are from a small subset of the organization.

    Advice to Senior ManagementYou need to understand how all of your employees feel, and don't just listen to the "chosen" few. Their arrogance and unwillingness to compromise and listen to other ideas stifles creativity and advancement of the company.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
