Pros

Bottomline has a pretty good benefits plan for a company of its size.

Cons

CEO does an all employee call each quarter to discuss company financials - complete with cow bells, bad jokes, and laugh tracks. Something similar to a very bad vaudeville act. CEO likes to talk about how well the company is doing..... then cancels bonus payouts at will, even when the company achieves its financial targets.

Advice to Management

Create a real growth strategy that is strategic - and not one that focuses on buying poor performing companies in adjacent markets at a discount - just to prop up near term quarterly earnings.

    Pros

    The benefits are comparable to larger companies

    Cons

    Management need to have interaction with employees.

    Contractors have the core product knowledge therefore there is no spirit of cooperation or transfer of knowledge and management is not able to bring that to the table.

    Advice to Management

    Be more involve and make knowledge transfer the first priority.

    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 Management

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