Pros

Lots of freedom and flexibility in work.

Decent pay/benefits

Cons

Solution to every problem is to eliminate positions. Poor employment stability

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Need to find a better way to forecast demand and plan projects. You can't keep hiring and laying off people.

    Pros

    Wonderful people, some truly great clients, flexibility of being a remote employee, fairly good overall benefits (but 401(k) matching reduction still stings), travel with the consulting jobs (if you enjoy being a road warrior).

    Cons

    Salary freezes, below-market pay in many cases, bonus plans that are constantly being reduced, executive management that is causing a lot of hostility and frustration with employees, and doesn't listen to us. Customers who are increasingly frustrated with being charged higher prices than the competition and a stagnant development cycle. We're falling behind the times with regards to our software, and newer companies are providing more attractive solutions that cost less, while our executive management doesn't really deal with those problems effectively.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Middle-level managers truly do care, especially in Professional Services. They do what they can, but they no longer can do very much. We're in a very, very bad place now because of the acquisition and merger. All the talk of the new owners investing more in software development, employee training, compensation, and benefits has disappeared and been replaced by a harsh reality, brought upon us by a company that paid too much for SGHE and put the wrong guy in charge.
