Advice to ManagementAdvice

Find someone to trust to manage US operations. It may be better to have someone in roughly the same timezone to deal with urgent matters.

Invest in the product - at least get the GUI solid.

It may be better to have a website with less features, than to have a broken website that embarrasses the company and forces employees to make excuses for it's inadequacies.

    It is all about perception - One man's day of hard work is another man's day of idleness

    Pros

    Lucrative and mentally stimulating

    Great money if you can sell

    The Argent products encompass the entire enterprise at any organisation thus great opportunity to broaden your knowledge of IT in all areas, from networks and servers to individual applications and varying internal processes used by different companies

    Challenging for those who enjoy challenges, both technical and interpersonal

    Good opportunities to travel both domestically and potentially internationally as well

    Great opportunities to become aquainted with (technically or strategically) many organisations both large and small across the globe

    Cons

    With a relatively small company, the impetus to always be performing at a high standard should be a given. It is human nature to become settled in a role and to be objectionable to change however any company, particulalry in IT, will not survive without change and those who can not keep up with these changes will be left behind, else the greater being does not endure

    Lots to learn when you start but the rewards are there.

    A lot of self discipline is required and only those with self discipline will survive

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    As individuals we can all improve to move ourselves toward enlightenment and greater consciousness in our actions

    As a successful global software company for over 18 years (when so many others have died along the way) we will continue to improve upon an already proven system of internal staff management (where those who are truely motivated and capable receive support and rewards for their efforts), continual development of world leading enterprise management solutions and commitment to delivering outstanding customer support (who else provides and encourages free onsite support to assist customers when needed)

    I have been working at Argent Software

    Pros

    1. Great pay compared to other jobs in the same field

    2. Lots of traveling, which is great for me because I love to travel around

    3. Top management rewards well if you do put your time and effort into your work

    4. Management puts a lot of time and money into training for newbies, which does not happen with many other companies

    5. The product sells itself. Easy money

    6. A lot of people blame the CEO for the lack of direction and management, but you should not expect to be treated like a princess when you are making only 10 calls per day with no leads and not bringing in any deals after 3 months

    Cons

    It is honestly a very tough sales environment. If you do not have the confidence and skills, you're bound to fail

    Following direction and absorbing the company culture will take time, but is worth it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A quarterly review with the employees and getting feedback from them will be nice. This will increase moral in the company if they feel that top management is not just throwing money at them to work.
