Great learning experience, but the internal politics became overbearing.

Pros

Great products, great people, great customers, environment and culture for the most part the best in the business, some great perks.

Cons

Internal politics, the people who are the CEO favorites are killing moral. Continuing to reward people for under performing, blaming, and not being accountable is bringing down the moral of the people who are doing great things for the products and the customer base.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Need to get rid of the people that are destroying moral of the great performers. Reward the good people with career advancement and meaningful job titles.

    Pros

    Its a great company to work for if you work at HQ in Eden Prairie MN. They seemed to have a great culture there.

    Cons

    Help/Systems has purchased more than a half dozen smaller software companies over the last several years. Sadly, Help/Systems has decided to let almost every employee go from all of the companies that they decide to purchase.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be honest with the employees at the companies you are buying up. If you are going to lay off all of the employees, that is fine, but dont host a company meeting in which you say "nothing is going to change" and then a month later come back and let a large portion of the work force go.

    I worked at Help/Systems full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Small-ish company, lots of nice people (claim to have a "no jerks" policy). Still has remnants of a "small company" culture. Many of the managers understand that the company's major asset are the people who make their customers happy.

    Cons

    Hellbent on growth, don't trust employees to work from home (although certain privileged people do), and a bizarre Internet filter (so people just use their smartphones instead - and spend more time doing so).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None
