Unusually stable tech company strongly worth a look if you are OK with legacy technology

Technical Specialist (Current Employee) Sydney (Australia)

ProsI like going to work because coworkers are top notch, environment is nice, and the resources to solve technical issues are available. A problem with the database doesn't mean a call to the Microsoft support line with your fingers crossed, but a skype to a mate back in the US who works on it.
Company's net income has trending upward for decades.
In Sydney, very international workforce, so much to learn from coworkers from all over the world.
Technical specialist is a fun role that spans the gap between developers and product implementation.
Work-life balance is better here than at most tech companies. Work-at-home sometimes possible a day or two a week.
Opportunities to travel to assist with implementation and sometimes to work abroad long term.
Company is more execution than public relations. You feel that your work actually counts for something in real life beyond the content of a press release.
Compensation levels tend to be what you expect, and level-appropriate.

ConsThe company's core technologies aren't the most popular tech buzzwords in the 21st century, although they are so reliable that many, many businesses use them.
Company is not a "household name" on the CV because customers generally use its technologies internally.
Advancement tends to be other than through informal paths.
Company's technologies can be challenging from the developer or administrative perspectives. If you don't have patience for technical detail, this may not be the employer or role for you.

Advice to Senior ManagementLook around to find some more acquisitions to expand the company's product line.
Create a rotation program so that developers can experience the results of their "shortcuts" in the field and so that the field can experience how difficult that "simple change" they asked for is to implement.
Cambridge has an educational benefit, according to another review here? Please consider one for the Sydney staff! Please?

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
