Pros

Laserfiche is a great place to start a career fresh out of college. You really have an opportunity to hit the ground running and make your own way without a whole lot of training. You will very quickly be working directly with a wide variety of clientele.

Cons

The caveat to the pros is that there really is not a lot of guidance and training for how to do your work. You are expected to churn out results but there isn't particularly good direction on how to get there. The other major problem is that there is a very low ceiling in terms of growth potential. I say get in, work for 2-3 years max and move on.

Advice to Management

Upper management should hire external experts instead of constantly hiring fresh college grads. The college grad network is great for young youthful energy, but we are missing out on vital real industry expertise because everyone in the company is for the most home grown.

    Pros

    For junior software engineers, this is definitely one of the best place to get hands-on experience. There are a ton of experienced programmers you can learn from, the workload is challenging, and you will always get a chance to learn new things.

    Cons

    The management do not know how to appreciate their employees. Once you've had a really good year, the management will reward you well the first year with additional responsibilities - but they will continue to expect you to do everything you used to do PLUS your new responsibilities (rinse and repeat every year) until you cannot handle the workload anymore.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to appreciate what your people can do. If you're going to promote someone, have someone else to replace that individual's former responsibilities instead of expecting that one person to be able to do everything.

    Short term, great job. Long term, might want to seriously consider.

    Pros

    Fun and youthful group of co-workers. Once you get to know them, they mingle with you well on and offline. Game room. There's a whole section set up for entertainments for you to play pool, pingpong, table football. You can enjoy them any time during lunch and after work. Free lunch. All you can eat buffet style lunches from sandwiches, chinese food and carne asada.

    Cons

    All the management wants to be a king in their own right which ends up creating tons of internal conflicts. There's a lack of clear direction for those beneath them, they are not afraid to turn back on their words and blame you for it. You have an alpha female running an authoritarian family business. They train you to be good little gamma delta minions and hope you stay as minions. High turnover rate across the board as a result of built up frustration and lack of management care.

    Advice to Management

    Do some self assessment as to why the company has such a high turnover. Chances are, it's not the staff's fault. Stop micromanaging and let people develop their own style of handling and presenting things. Listen to the opinions of your team more and actually care about the feedback they provide you. A king alone can't fight a war, he needs an army of EXPERIENCED and LOYAL soldiers to help him win the war. No soldier wants to work for a tyrannical king.
