I have been working at Advent Software

Pros

work/life balance
corporate culture
can bring dogs to work
nice facilities (can only speak to SF)

Cons

salary is below market
promotion opportunities are nonexistant
promotions based on who you know (ass kiss) than whether you really deserve it

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Advent has a very strong executive management team, however, people need to feel as if though they have a some kind of career path at the company, which is something the company doesn't do well.

    Pros

    Advent is a very employee friendly place to work. HR has done a good job creating a compelling benefits package and employee friendly policies.

    Cons

    Many of the people have been with Advent for 5, 10 and even 15 years. Many of the senior manager, especially very senior folks, have worked together for a really long time. Some have worked together at other jobs. If you're wondering if you'll ever become part of the pack, well...I guess I'll find out.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    People are nice. Sometimes, a bit too nice. The company could do with less process and more result oriented focus. It would be great to look at some hard facts and be more critical of each others performance. Would be less nice, but maybe more efficient and certainly more honest w/ the hard facts.
