Current Employee - Senior Technical Consultant

I have been working at Ellucian full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Hands-off middle management, ability to work remotely, decent benefits

Cons

A lot of uncertainty about the future of our pay, positions, and benefits after the merger. A lot of internal PR (sending employees Ellucian oven mitts?) to help establish the brand doesn't ease the tension.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Quit wasting money on oven mitts, barbecue rub, pens, bags, shirts, and other promos. Make up for it with retaining benefits and fair pay raises.

    I have been working at Ellucian full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Flexible work hours, great team and people, making a difference

    Cons

    Two great companies combine = everyone loses and feels acquired. Including the investors.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to yourselves. Especially you, HR. You've been so clumsy over the last year that it's amazing you're retaining any employees or clients at all. Employee sat is at an all time low. Your emails to all staff are a joke and contain a new offense every time. Stop trying to convince us that each new indignity is actually a win. We're smarter than you think.

    I worked at Ellucian

    Pros

    Management is transparent.
    The company's customers are more than 50% of the marketplace.
    There are some outstanding individual contributors in the company.

    Cons

    Management appears to have just realized:
    --their market is not growing and will not grow given...
    --their customers' funding sources are dry
    --employees have choices
    Management has yet to realize:
    --most employees have known the viable market was constrained for more than a decade
    --most employees and customers have realized the customers funding sources were drying up for more than five years
    --customers are more concerned about solid value delivered than they are about new bells and pretty ribbons
    --many of the 'new' solutions were internally developed by customers many years ago
    --the customers and employees realize the individuals that have moved the company forward don't have lofty titles
    --the employees that have the best choices for alternative employment are those that are the outstanding contributors and have moved the company forward
    --employees and customers are much more perceptive and knowledgeable than leadership recognizes

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It may be too late, but 'today' may be the last day you have to turn the company around.
    Start at the top (the owners) by asking for the resignation of all senior management, and give them the opportunity to compete for the job they had.
    Recognize that the opportunity for each of the now combined companies to put a new face on their solutions passed between 10 and 15 years ago, and that the best opportunity now may be to go into extreme maintenance mode with no expectation of new customer sales--ever.
    In the interim, significantly reduce the size of management overhead. It is, in general...in over its head.
    Remember that 'transparency' is overrated when the perceived value of what you exposed is counter to your intent.
