Current Employee - Senior Software Developer in Alpharetta, GA

I have been working at Ipswitch

Pros

Opportunity to work on the cutting edge of technology.
Incredibly good benefits.
Very good at helping charities.
Financially very stable and private company.

Cons

Lot of internal politics. People work in cliques and if you don't belong to one you feel like an outcast.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Tone down the politics. Reward people based on their work not how good they can suck up to you. When you ask for honest advice from others, don't punish them for giving you their honest opinion even though it may be critical of you or decisions you made. Communicate your decisions better.

    Pros

    Interesting projects that provide value to many end users

    Was using Agile development practices (not sure if they are now)

    Cons

    Company culture has degraded over the past couple of years
    Management doesn't do well with determining future needs of the market

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest more time/money in your people. Work hard to keep them happy, and they will perform beyond your expectations. Focus on making sound decisions on product directions, and reward your employees more.

    I have been working at Ipswitch

    Pros

    - Good benefits: healthcare, vacation
    - A lot of activities

    Cons

    - People play politics heavily
    - There are big organization changes almost every year
    - Hiring and laying off people 12 monthes per year. They are replacing people to maintain the cost low
    - Very old technologies, no innovation at all.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you want to sell the divisions, do it today.
