    Pros

    Great technology, benefits, and pay is market value. Have a good install base and receive a large revenue stream from that. Made very good acquisitions over the years buying best of breed technology. Market leader in certain sectors.

    Cons

    The strategy is where there is no direction, growth is flat, and talent level has dissipated as roles aren't clearly defined and management is on a turntable as they are attempting to do more with less. Privately held after long stint as a public company aka the beginning of the end, the ship is slowly sinking. Wouldn't be shocked if a larger more nimble company bought the pieces eventually. Tons of complacent workers happy collecting a check. New customers are hard to obtain and lots of customers leaving.

    Advice to Management

    Management used to be amazing as you had long time industry leaders from the big software companies guiding the ship. Now you have glorified field reps running territories with no mgt experience. Pay is competitive but competition is offering much more. Also no equity = no long term plans.

    Pros

    Good facilities, average benefits,
    Great Offshore teams. Senior management pretty effective at solving product issues.
    Very good focus on customers during pursuit phase, Indian business and technical management are second to none.

    Cons

    Middle Management too reactive, Mixed bag of consultant quality and people skills,
    Services ( PMO, Portfolio managers, "Global" delivery managers...) unprepared and forced to play "hot potato" trying to bury rework costs and impact of fixing poorly tested software.

    Advice to Management

    Streamline middle management ( eliminate - don't just shuffle the deck)
     Invest in QA to improve our software. Develop better training for consultants.
    Ramp up PS delivery managers with basic functional and technical product training.
