I worked at Maxwell Systems

Pros

Maxwell Systems does attempt to be on the cutting edge of construction software development.

Cons

Unfortunately, attempt only gets Maxwell so far. They have put all their eggs into 1 basket and failed to garner the attention of the market as they intended. Attempts to compete against larger enterprise software companies have consistently failed and as a result has taken focus away from satisfying the needs of their current customers. Their customers are consistently unhappy and Senior management either does not see this or does not care. Instead of promoting from within, Maxwell habitually hires those positions from outside the organization.

Maxwell's inefficiencies combined with its barren target market, the construction industry correlates to a poor place to work.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Your product implementation is a disaster. Customers are perpetually unhappy. Promote your employees both hierarchically and compensatorily.

    Pros

    Established and reasonably stable in its market. profitable but no longer growing. Solid core base of longtime customers

    Cons

    Slow moving, not innovators, distracted by shiny objects and not diligent around core software development practices, resulting in poor quality and customer attrition.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Establish accountability for deliverables across groups and then follow through on actions, both positive and negative. Take care of your core customers first, then allocate resources to new development. Get off installed software and onto the cloud.

    I worked at Maxwell Systems full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    A great deal of autonomy is afforded once one prove's oneself.
    The working conditions are good and the morale is relativley high.

    Cons

    Like every company I have ever worked for, it is more important to make the sale than it is to qualify the customer as a appropriate fit for the software being sold.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop selling software to companies that either don't really want it or certainly will not benefit from it. If it's not a good fit, have the integrity to walk away.
