I have been working at Halogen Software

Pros

Very family friendly. Good location. Management makes genuine attempt at doing the right thing for the product instead of themselves.

Cons

Pay is slightly below par.
There's an old group of people who seem to make the majority of the decisions.
The tech is very outdated and the senior people are smart but the ones who have only been there forever are really just junior dev with lots of experience making the same mistakes. So it's hard to make a difference there. That's starting to change to be fair.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Don't let red tape creep into the process

    I worked at Halogen Software

    Pros

    - stable company
    - decent product and competant leadership at the top levels
    - company with a decent reputation (at least in 2010)

    Cons

    - poor pay
    - poor career advancement potential
    - call centre environment
    - inconsistent quotas and compensation/commission packages
    - poor leadership from lower management
    - unusal culture that attempts to brainwash employees into thinking that it is the best company to work for despite coming up short in the areas above
    - recent issues with a competitor call into question the ethics of the company
    - demands of the job consistently went up without compensating employees accordingly

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Without any chance of vertical movement and, as long as Halogen lags other companies with respect to compensation and work conditions, people will continue to leave.

    I worked at Halogen Software

    Pros

    work life balance available. hours were flexible. had a friendly department in my department, however the other divisions and departments did not communicate with my department

    Cons

    no company culture. really poor communication from executive management to middle management. There were limited times for input and the HR function while being recruited was poor.
