    Pros

    Advent is a place where you can grow. If you perform well you can move up the ladder quite quickly.

    Cons

    Advent doesn't listen to its sales staff regarding product improvements and functionality - we are on the front lines but development seems to do more or less what they want.

    Advice to Management

    In order to keep employees, they need to be given compensation increases which reward their longevity and value.

    Pros

    Advent truly cares about its employees. The 2008 recession is a great example of this. Other companies had layoffs and salary cuts, Advent made minimal benefit cuts (fewer types of free milk in the kitchens, but the important stuff like salary, vacation, 401k matching, etc was intact). Merit increases were suspended for a year (and subsequently paid). Poor managers are not tolerated. When a poor manager is detected, senior managers actively coach the poor manager. If coaching fails, the manager is let go. The company continuously strives for improvement.

    Cons

    Their is a fairly clueless middle management layer that is entrusted with too much decision making power. Duplication of product lines is hampering growth and flexibility in the product suite.

    Advice to Management

    The company needs stronger direction. We are currently on track to be the old company that gets unseated by an upstart or a competitor with a smarter solution. We can't buyout our competitors forever.
