Pros

Agilysys is a good place to work. Benefits and compensation appear to be average for our area. There are a wide range of skills needed as the company has many different areas of business. So for the individual who is willing to learn new things, there is plenty of room for advancement. Most of the employees at least in our location appeared to be happy with their job and working environment.

Cons

The only downside that I can think of is that we never seemed to have enough people to handle to day to day business which makes it hard on everyone. It's hard to find people with the right skills.

    Company stuck in the 80's..... using obsolete technologies, trying to survive and thinks they are global but not.

    Pros

    If you are an iSeries professional, you have a great career there.
    Small company with great potential given the Hospitality space does not have a lot of players.
    Has a good, clean work environment (physically), Executive leadership wants to make a difference and maintain profitability to keep afloat in this financial market.
    Benefits are average for this size company. No complaints
    Corporate Business does not meddle in running the operations of the Lines fo Business executives. The employees are great, friendly and willing to work on whatever they are assigned. No problem with desire to team and collaborate when asked.

    Cons

    But don't think you will grow into much new. they are not ready for .Net unless they acquire a company then wonder what to do with the technology!
    Autocratic management style.. Not open and not fostering growth and trust
    Career opportunities for staff is limited as they are a small shop and don't really have a plan or actually if they had one that HR could drive, the Lins of business leaders are managing their resopurces so lean that there is no time left in the day to really invest to advance other than OJT. Exec management make knee jerk responses to precieved pressures and impressions of staff' performance and will constantly change people around hoping that things will get better. They have a lot of old-timers that just need to be let go due to lack of performance, but they hold on to them because they can't afford to lose them due to iSeries Skills that are scares. They expect people can jump into complex technologies like .Net and learn and be functioning at mid to sr-level developers and architects when they did not invest in them to learn and become good at anything before they get yanked off to do 12 other things.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create a product strategy and then hire competent Sr. leadership to execute. Need to change from silos to an enterprise wide product

    I worked at Agilysys

    Pros

    Compensation and benefits were the only reason I worked there for 5 years. Though, I can tell you that even with a positve annual review, I did not receive a raise for 3 years. Guess they thought I was already making too much for my job title.

    Cons

    Senior management has no clue what is going on at the field level. Strategic direction and product focus areas changed frequently making it next to impossible to focus your knowledge and be successful. Finally, communication between management (all levels) and line employees was weak at best. No career path ... promise of management opportunity but nothing ever materializes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Come up with a strategic direction and stick with it for at least 6 months.
