Great growth potential but a migration towards Corporate micro-management has hindered workplace experience

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

Pros

Great growth potential for entry level employees, true open door management, comfortable work environment

Cons

Salary is lagging behind regional standard, too many products currently offered causes confusion and obstruction, poor communication between company divisions

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Figure out what we need to sell, jettison the rest, and allow other departments to push back on sales about questionable statements of work

    I worked at Perceptive Software full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Fun Positive Energy in the company headquarters

    Communicates well company wide (monthly meetings and biweekly updates)

    Great 401k matching (5% matching + 1% just because)

    Cons

    Acquired Companies too fast, feeling growing pains.

    Difficulty integrating new and better products (Basically they want to sell clients a product that hasnt seen much revision UI wise. Think windows 3.1 kind of dialog feeling)

    Company culture is not present at remote offices.

    HQ centric. If you don't work in KC, you don't matter. Basically, we working as a remote team needed the HQ team to develop something on their main product. It took them 6 months and we needed to have their Director of Engineering to tell the teams to actually do the work. (They kept pushing it off)

    HQ talent and development speed is incredibly slow.

    Too much integration. Want to make their product one monolithic product rather than having the smaller products accel at what they do.

    --Local Office

    Terrible people to work with. Very caustic, ego driven, high pressure, mentality is: DEVELOP DEVELOP DEVELOP!

    Incredibly unprofessional work environment. People yell at one another. "You F***ed up the build! Go fix it!" rather than "Hey the build is broken, could you take a look at what caused it? I think its related to X, Y or Z in your code"

    No time to think or learn new technology

    These are not fun people you want to hang out with outside of work.

    Poor management chain. The main manager works from home.

    Poor path to promotion

    Doubled the physical size of the office and then laid off half the engineers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    HIRE MORE YOUNG AND UPBEAT PEOPLE.

    Eliminate the strict usage of scrum

    Get rid of rally, its terribly slow and is only good for making managers feel good that the numbers are changing.

    Make the remote offices feel more like members of the team. Integrate cross functional teams with the KC office.

    Encourage more travel between HQ and remote offices.
