I have been working at MicroEdge full-time for more than a year

Pros

- You get to really know the people that you work with. We are all working in some capacity toward a bigger goal, our mission is really to help the philanthropic community thrive and succeed. The people that are most successful here are those that keep that in mind.
- You get a lot more experience than you would at a larger company.
- The people that work here are really great at their jobs, and are really good mentors toward the younger staff.
- They have a good benefits package.
- You get to meet and interact with most of upper management depending on what office you work in.
 - Room for advancement if you seek it out.

Cons

- Sometimes the work load can be overwhelming.
-The pay is on the low side.
- I wish that more money were spent on fun activities for the office.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Invest in your employees. Give them more of your time and resources if you want them to be more successful. Show them that you care about them.

    Pros

    Working in the philanthropic community
    Close relationships with clients
    CEO is a decent guy (but on his way out)

    Cons

    Used to be a family atmosphere here, even as part of Advent Software. Clients paid premium prices but got decent value. After acquisition by Vista it became "all about the money". Clients now pay through the nose and have to deal with young, inexperienced employees who earn very little. The company shows little loyalty towards its employees or clients.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire some people who clients can respect- not kids who know nothing about the field
    Pay reasonable wages
    Don't force employees to sign abusive non-compete agreements

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at MicroEdge full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Get to work on high-level projects that I wouldn't be exposed to in the same role at most other companies.
    Good group of colleagues for the most part.
    CEO, CFO are great to work with.

    Cons

    Underpaid with little to no room for promotion
    They espouse the fact that they're owned by Vista and there are job opportunities due to this relationship, however, there is never any mention of job openings in other Vista companies so it is more like a PR line they give new employees.
    I work more than my manager does (but paid considerably less)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay your employees more if you're serious about retaining talent, pay attention to whether your managers are truly effective (not all are)
