I have been working at Aspect Software full-time for more than 8 years

Pros

New leadership having good focus and vision. New product released with high quality and starting to payoff. Can work on cutting edge technologies. Can balance personal and professional life . Salary is good. All this opinion is from the past few months positive changes happening in Aspect.

Cons

Ealier had lot of issues like frequent layoffs, no long term vison, very less investment in R&D which has attributed to the loss of market share and revenue.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Now with the new management, everyone is having high hope and enthusisam. Once the employees are motivated, company will succeed. I personally feel that now every one have a new positve energy.

    I worked at Aspect Software full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Still some potential for certain job categories. Software engineers are the most valued. If you work in an area they need, you can negotiate a decent position and salary, depending on where you live. There is still some advancement possible for top performers.

    Cons

    Aspect sales have been slowed by the world-wide economic downturn and by the fact that they face some very tough competition. Their flagship product is having problems with quality and with meeting the release schedule. They suffer from being a company that has grown by purchasing other companies and trying to build their central product by kludging acquired products together instead of creating an integrated product from the initial design. They are much more focused on profit than on the welfare of their employees - many have not had a raise in years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Place more value on the employees. Encourage employees to get training so that they can move into areas valuable to the company and compensate them for improvements in their capabilities. Do not micro-manage so much.
