I have been working at Bottomline Technologies full-time for more than 8 years

Pros

There are great people to work with and the benefits are top notch.

Cons

The upper management Push, Push, Push to get everything done. Most employees seem to be overworked and under appreciated. There also seems to be a habit of cutting the workforce just prior to quarterly results so the "books" look more tenable to the Public Stock Holders.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be more transparent and actually hire the staff necessary to carry the work load you expect to need.

    I worked at Bottomline Technologies

    Pros

    Some really nice people and nice work environment. They try to make it family friendly, but often this is in word not deed.

    Cons

    The CEO creates a hostile and demeaning atmosphere that is counterproductive to a healthy work environment. The pay is so-so and the benefits are average. The top management gets all the perks. The CEO drives a Porsche, naturally. There are no "free massages", so whoever wrote that is a bot.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It is time for Rob Eberle to go. What kind of strategy is it to denigrate your employees? Will this keep people here or attract the best people in the future? There are a lot of good people at Bottomline, but Eberle is a total fail. He blames others for his own mistakes, and instead of offering employees any constructive criticism so they might learn from a mistake he will send a scathing email copied to dozens of employees (guaranteed to embarrass) or shout at the poor person in front of half the office. I got out of this place fast because I have too much self-respect to put up with his crap.

    Pros

    Great corporate philosophy, great ethic of working 'with and for' each other, good pride in their work.

    Cons

    It's a sweatshop. No other way to put it. They talk of 'work-life balance', but they do not walk the walk. Very long hours are frequently expected.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you say you believe in work life balance, practice that.
