    Mediocre Software company, with horrible politics and software quality.

    I have been working at Axway full-time

    Pros

    Work life balance - A lot of positions you can work remote
    People - There are a lot of good people in certain groups (Services mainly).
    Marketing and Management seem to be able to project vision to the marketplace
    Benefits - Average to above average.

    Cons

    Culture: Is absolutely horrendous. It's way to political in all aspects and people seem to be in CYA mode constantly. There is NO accountability at all, especially in the R&D space. You must learn the French culture of doing things to even survive. Almost all key/high level positions are French own, making if difficult in certain areas of the globe.

    Products: Are of the poorest quality which makes selling, supporting, and doing PSO work a nightmare. The R&D group does NOT perform proper Q&A on any of it's products. Key areas like Performance, Functionality, and Security are grossly ignored. There are also TO MANY PRODUCTS. Axway claims it's selling an enterprise solution. In reality, it's a bunch of different products that have been "slapped" together over their history of acquiring companies/products. That along with the product teams not "sync'ed" makes doing business on all levels impossible.

    Career Growth: Little to none if you are not French.

    My overall advice to people who are looking to work here is to find your niche, else, the main areas such as PSO/Support/Sales can be a nightmare to deal with. There is little "career growth" and deal with MAJOR product quality issues is something that you don't want to deal with.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    GET IN THE GYM! The company has become to fat with management and politics which is causing you to lag behind and be inefficient.

    STREAMLINE YOUR PRODUCTS, IMPROVE QUALITY!!!!!!!!!! It's getting out in the industry that Axway product quality is very bad and require LOTs of PSO (Man hours) to implement/upgrade.

    When you have companies suing you after failed projects and others leaving for your competitors you should blame the right group. R&D!!!!!!!!!!! NOT PSO/SUPPORT/SALES

    Listen to you voice of your customers and act!

    I worked at Axway full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    - Lack of accountability
    - good place to work if you can suck up. You will be on fast track.

    Cons

    - Too much politics.
    - Top management oblivious
    - BU managers incompetent and very political
    - People stay because of bad economy. More opportunities outside will result in more good people leaving

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It is not difficult. Define tangible KPIs for BUs and fire the managers if they don't deliver.
    Hold them accountable
