    I worked at Aspect Software full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Customers come from a variety of background and sizes and the project durations vary, so you have options when rolling off a project. Some employees are exceptional and my peer group was fun to be around.

    Cons

    Interview process is unprofessional and long (1/2 day interview, 2 weeks of HR nonsense) - two fingerprintings and FBI checks, drug tests, financial background checks. While I was there we had multiple layoffs and more were coming; rumor mill was rampant. Many people were leaving anyway, and many were 10+ year veterans. Salaries are very low and they talk about bonuses and commissions but no one I worked with had gotten a bonus in years. The commission structure makes it almost impossible to get one. It's not a company that welcomes new hires. Some in management are good but have given up; others are arrogant, oblivious and unskilled at simple human interaction. Many of the old guard are threatened by people with experience so expect to be spoken to by some as if you're unskilled and a bit stupid. Expect simple requests for anything to take weeks with lots of follow up. Things are broken all the time, from the project creation in Oracle to wireless and VPN access and no one seems to care. These are all simple things that much smaller companies get right every day. Zero perks.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Show some courage and solve some real problems without 50 sign offs and permission. You're running out of time if you're really claiming to be committed to the health of the company. What got you here won't get you there.

    I have been working at Aspect Software full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Some departments seem to work very well. Environment is clean & modern.

    Cons

    Lots of staff defections at the mid level as well as individual contributors. Not many people seem happy. Many people looking for opportunities elsewhere. Lots of positive talk from c-level and director level parroting. Lots of fluff talk and lipstick on the pig. Seems like writing is on the wall.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get out of your own way.

    No opinion of CEO
