Old school 8-5 company that is unlike a software or high tech company

Pros

Good work/life balance that is promoted by Sr. management. It is not a overtime every night kinda place but a 8-5 place. Most people seem to arrive after 8am and leave before 5:30pm. Good job if you have a family, another job or a hobby.

Cons

No upward career mobility because they expect you to just do your job and be happy about it. Most decisions need to go to Senior management. Salary increases only match inflation, if there are any salary increases. Most employees are long timers who have been at the company over 10 years and they don't know a different way of doing things or have different ideas. Very stifling if you want to grow in your career.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Management needs to provide a compelling vision for the company and not just focus on EBITDA for the next quarter. A vision where we believe and can strive for. Where is the company going? What is the future look like?

    Pros

    Family comes first. Benefits are decent.

    Cons

    Management is more worried with EBIDA management than customer service or employee morale.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start appreciating the employees you do have and start focusing on what the customer tells you about customer service and what the employees tell you.

    Pros

    Activant provides opportunities to their sales team to be extremely successful. The company recently has attempted to go back to its roots of customer support and service and this has been a positive move that has been recognized by its customers.

    Cons

    Activant is a sales driven company that easily loses its bearings related to existing customers. The next sale is more important than keeping its existing customers satisfied.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There are many seasoned employees that are stifled by a lack of opportunity to get their voice heard. Senior management lacks sustained focus on initiatives, hopping from one project to another before they allow results to show.
