Pros

Good Company that cares about it's people. Great training

Cons

Some of the people are not the best around, they promote within since it's easier and cheaper than to find better talent externally.
The products are stale and they are living off of maintenance stream. Little Innovation
Complex licensing makes it hard to manage a client

    They are very unorganized and don't have a clue what they are doing.

    Pros

    The pay was good overall. They kept up with the competition on salary.

    Cons

    They are very unorganized and you are lucky if you get your pay on time.

    Advice to Management

    Get it together, I loved working here and loved my job. Hated the fact that it took 6 months to pay me the money owed to me and also the fact that nobody knew what was going on. Very unorganized company!

    Pros

    Decent compensation
    Great client base with challenging problems
    Work life balance is manageable
    Dysfunction is predictable
    Lots of room to operate independently and be an individual contributor across many internal organizations

    Cons

    Collectively, a sorely underperforming and dysfunctional organization
    Too many layers of middle management
    If you're not in sales, you're a piece of easily replaceable meat
    Company is not growing. The only product customers are happy with is Remedy.
    Very little opportunity to change roles or advance your career

    Advice to Management

    It's time to sell the company, or at least start operating like one founded in the last 15 years.
