Pros

If you're looking for an easy 9-5 in Houston, this could be a good place.

Cons

Management, compensation, and poor technology are all factors on why I left PROS. Management lacks the skill to effectively manage, motivate, and improve employees. For example, a head of a department once stated during an all hands meeting that even though stock price has increased significantly they would not pass along any additional benefits to employees since people weren't leaving because of pay.

The technology PROS sells is very expensive and many potential clients often question the value of the investment. I will say that PROS does do a great job with the science of pricing, however the platform they build it on resembles something from the 90's. The platform can only be run with Internet Explorer and outdated Java. Finally, the industry that PROS serves has a low economic moat and medium to low barriers to entry. With new competition coming from large companies like Oracle and small, lean start-ups, PROS will likely struggle in the years to come to keep its technology relevant.

    Pros

    Great peers to work with, smart, dependable, friendly. Working here you are able to get involved in many different projects for diverse customers and industries, and acquire lots of experience.

    Cons

    While decisions from the C-level execs make sense, the middle "senior" management people that has come in the recent years does not really seem to get it. They are putting in jeopardy the results-oriented customer-focused culture that made this company great in the first two decades. They don't seem to really know how to execute the vision and are leaving people frustrated in their path.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Watch the organic growth, avoid wasted resources, watch for inefficiencies not just add more layers of people hoping this will take the company to the next level, do retrospectives after decisions.
