Solid, if maybe a little boring, company.

I worked at MICROS Systems full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

This is a stable and growing company, with many opportunities. The people I worked with were great, and their global outlook puts them in a secure position for the future.

Cons

At times the company can be very rigid. In some was it is like working for the old IBM. While I can't directly complain, I felt the atmosphere left something a little lacking.

    I worked at MICROS Systems full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    lots of other miserable employees to commiserate with
    some opportunities for up-to-date technical exposure
    If all you want is a job where you show up on time and keep your head down and underperform, this is a good place to hide out and earn a decent salary.

    Cons

    Worst corporate culture I've ever experienced. Abusive management that loves it that way.
    "It's not what you know, it's who you sleep with"
    Long hours, constant code death marches, little respect or trust given, excessively penny-wise.
    Lots of bonuses and extra compensation to top management, but little shared with "the little people" that make it all possible.
    Arrogant attitude with many major accounts.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Probably impossible to simultaneously replace enough management to make this company employee-friendly.

    I have been working at MICROS Systems full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Fantastic benefits, no other company can compete. Salaries are above industry average. Great people to work with and very flexible working environment. Fast paced and every day is different, (best part of an being in an e-commerce group).

    Overall the pay and benefits make it hard to leave, but there isn't much for career opportunity and growth.

    Cons

    Not much for career growth or development. Not a lot of transparency and very micro-managed company, which tends to slow everything down when you are a 5K+ employee company. Overall behind the times in technology and not really innovating.

    Still a very successful company but may get itself handed to in the next 3-5 years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Realize that the company is behind the times when it comes to technology and cross platform solutions and start innovating instead of buying small companies and duct taping them together. Stop micro-managing and allow your people to do their jobs without having to deal with the mega-corporation politics.
