Pros

Great group of employees, they are trying their best and are very helpful and resourceful. Many changes have occurred and most employees have been with the company for less than 2 years.

Cons

Management - doesn't know it's own product or how it works. They are not up front with clients regarding the current state of their applications. They have older outdated applications that really need to be completely overhauled, but they keep trying to fix them a little at a time. Upgrading for older clients is a terrible process. There are no standard procedures and management only cares about selling the latest version to the clients. You constantly hear that if we can get the client to the latest version then all their problems will be fixed, but you hear that with every version.

Compensation - pay is a little below industry standard. Constantly changing compensation bonus plans. Never sure you will receive your bonus until it is actually paid. No matching 401K currently or anytime in the future. They believe they make up for it with bigger raises.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Believe what you preach. The catch phrase "World Class" is thrown around all the time, examples of other "World Class" companies are given at company "all hands" meetings. I think it is something they are striving for, but are nowhere near achieving. "World Class" is something that is earned and takes time, it's not a slogan you spout out every chance you get and expect it to just happen. You will never be a "World Class" company with your current lack of respect for your own employees.

    Pros

    Results Oriented - If you perform well, you will be rewarded. The company doesn't focus on how many hours you've worked or how early you come into the office, as long as your work is complete and well-done. The opportunities in this company are great - it's not surprising to see a promotion within 6 months for a great performer.

    Company Culture - Accruent has a work hard/play hard culture that is fast paced and is focused on being World Class. The people here take their work seriously and strive to better themselves every day. There is a sense of comaraderie between employees and departments, and teamwork is highly emphasized and valued. However, the company knows how to have fun with bi-weely "ACL's" - days where the entire office gets off early to enjoy beer and food. The kitchen/break room is also furnished with an air hockey table, pool table, video game systems, and other things to relax with. Being an Austin software company, the dresscode is business casual, leaning towards the casual side.

    Company Size - Accruent is a smaller company, which allows for better communication between management and employees. The executives of the company interact with employees of all levels, and add to the fun, yet driven, atmosphere of the company.

    Cons

    Compensation is a little lower for certain positions than similar positions in other companies. However, there is tremendous room for growth and good performance is rewarded with promotions and higher compensation. If you perform well, you will be promoted very quickly.

    Pros

    This place is awesome. It is full of a lot of promising talent, hard working teams and almost no politics. Everyone is focused on open, honest discussion of issues and productive resolution. There is no "that's not my job" mentality, no hoarding of information and no silo building. Results are everything and if you produce, they just throw more and more responsibility at you. There is an incredible amount of trust placed into your hands and you either suceed or fail.

    They do let people go, if they do not produce or are not a good fit-harsh at first perhaps, but it builds a better team in the long run. They expect and judge based upon results. Additionally, hey screen extensively befor ehiring-thus you work with VERY smart people everyday-it makes a big difference.

    The executive team is enthusiastic, energetic, even delightfully aggressive, in pursuit of the best possible results and in driving the team goals before the individual ego. Due to being embedded in the Vista portfolio, there is a great deal of potential to gain more responsibility and transition to sister companies, thus no concerns about a dead end job.

    If you are enthusiastic, team oriented, hungry for responsibility, driven to suceed, hard working, and crave ownership and accountability for your work, you will fit in well.

    If you like politics, think it isnt "your job", and lead by "brokering favors", you likely want to look elsewhere as you would be a poor fit.

    Cons

    You work hard and you have to set aside your own ego at times and really be devoted to what is best for the team.
