    Finance and sales run the company not the businesses.

    Pros

    Work hours and work load are not overwhelming.

    Cons

    Budgets rule the company. If you don't budget for something a year in advance it can't happen. Difficult to generate new business opportunities and little investment in new markets and products.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Move the compan.y forward into new markets and products. More flexability should be given to the businesses to deliver results

    Pros

    Flexibility about time off. I guess I'm lucky to have a job when so many others don't.

    Cons

    Benefit cuts, long unrewarded hours, constant feelings of job insecurit., They expect so much yet my pay and benefits have been dropping for several years now. I've remained because the job market has been so bad. Senior management has used the economic crisis to bludgeon employees. I'm told I'm required to work overtime, but forbidden to claim overtime pay. They neither appreciate nor reward hard work. I haven't had a raise that exceeded the inflation rate since 2006, despite consistenly exceeding expectations in annual reviews. Cutting company 401k contributions, then spending $750 million for acquisitions in the same year is a recipe to destroy the morale of the employees who are responsible for the success of the company. The executive aristocracy neither knows nor cares what really goes on in the trenches. I lost hope when local management began discourraging employees from voicing opinions during company wide town hall meetings setup for that expresses purpose. I feel abused, it's like being trapped in a bad relationship.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They really need to stop sending these travelogue e-mail updates, i don't care how many countries the CEO has visited, no doubt flying first class, when line employees can't travel even when it would clearly be of benefit to the company. It kills morale. The business plan seems to be to buy up competitors and break them so GXS avoids actually having to compete with them. The use of acquistions and cost cutting to drive the bottom line while ignoring critical systems and employess is not a plan for success. Reward your employees, giving less than 3% raises to top performers is an insult, not a reward.
