Current Employee - Manager in Houston, TX
Current Employee - Manager in Houston, TX

I have been working at PROS full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

+Excellent people
+Nice perks (free snacks, ice cream, etc)
+Good location (Houston office)
+Good products with satisfied customers
+Growth company that's doing very well financially
+Excellent internship programs
+Culture and values are great

Cons

-Extremely disorganized
-Senior management are very reactive and never follow through with a plan
-Compensation not very competitive
-Little room to grow; still a small company at heart
-Lack of communication between groups
-Difficulty making decisions
-Internal politics becoming a big problem
-Expect employees to work long hours; poor work/life balance
-Very high turnover

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Delegate. If you want the company to grow at the rate that's being communicated to Wall Street, the same three people can't be making every single decision. The lack of trust senior management has in employees is detrimental to morale and hurting productivity.

    Lot of talk and drum beating to attract investors, final results are a joke. Look at profit, revenue and P/E.

    I worked at PROS full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Very rigiorous interview process for Developers (only).
    New technologies being tested all the time.
    Free drinks and chips and candies.

    Cons

    Very few leaders. CEO has a good vision, but dictatorial. Has some close buddies whom he promoted soley to have total control over all departments.
    Every other person is a VP or director. It is quite common to have a layer of 3 or 4 VPs reporting to each other.
    Lot of glitter from the outside to attract good talent, who will like it for a while until they realize things are different.
    Development Team is the strongest both in quality and politics.CEO was from that department so they take all decisions about the product and the product mangement team is basically a group of note takers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please share the wealth. Make each and every employee a part of the success not by praising and handing out end of year worthless gifts, but providing things that you and your favorite employees enjoy - bonus plans, and sell them stock options at the same price as you get them.
    Think about the customer. Yes, think about the customer. Think about a product with having cool capabilities and not just cool technologies. Dont first build products and then expect customers to buy it just because you think it is a good product. There is a lot of domain knowledge specially in the airline side, use them.

    Pros

    They focus on get things done. They offer good health benefits. Free parking. Birthday celebration once a month with ice cream.

    Cons

    They don't care about the employees, only about their productivity and how to allow them make more money.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let developers work remotely once a week.
