I have been working at Advent Software full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Great work life balance for the Company. As a consultant you are on the road almost every week, so its very hard to have a work life balance. The people there are great. Its a very fun atmosphere. They know how to have a good time. You wont find a mean person in the company.

Cons

As a consultant you travel every week. This will burn you out in about two years. Middle management is not very experienced. The salaries could be better, there are barely any raises and we just had layoffs, yet all of the executive this year got promoted. They need to adapt to client needs faster. There is not much career growth here. It seems like when you are in consulting, they don't like you to leave.

    Pros

    Hire and retain really smart people. Friendly, collegial atmosphere. Ambitious projects that make them the leader in a niche market globally. Focused on keeping things balanced rather than burning people out.

    Cons

    Sometimes projects seem overly ambitious given time and resources.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep listening to your people. They know a lot.
