    I have been working at Pervasive Software

    Pros

    Hard work is rewarded with intangible rewards like comp time, recognition by the whole company, etc. There is a culture of over acheiving hard workers who also play hard. Great benefits package. Most of management understands that their job is to run interference between upper management and those doing the grunt work. Great company social events! Always staying on the cutting edge of emerging tech.

    Cons

    There is a culture of over acheiving hard workers, lol...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Leadership at Pervasive has great vision and does a great job of letting the whole company know what's going on.

    I worked at Pervasive Software

    Pros

    1.Company is in a convenient location
    2.Typical 40 Hour work week
    3.Occasional company functions
    4.If asked to work overtime they will provide dinner for free

    Cons

    1.There is little to no training on internal software that the company uses for day to day tasks.
    2.Some Sr. Level Management gets upset if you ask simple questions.
    3.Sr. Level Management spends to much time on little issues instead of focusing on the overall picture, which will be their downfall.
    4.Bonuses and Stock Options are a JOKE!
    5.Flat sales over the last 12 years.
    6.Some employee’s don’t even reply to you when you say “Good Morning” as you pass them in the hall way.
    7.Employee’s and Management bring to much of their personal lives to the office environment.
    8.Company released software as defects were increasing in the product!
    9.Company sets up new employee's in doom to fail scenarios
    10.I do not see the company being able to mature their software Di 10 because. A. They need a mature marketing president to get the name out about their products. B. Need more mature Sr. Management in place to make wise company decisions, instead of based on emotion.
    11.I’ve seen Middle Schools and Start-up companies run better than this company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please don't bring your personal life into company meetings, that should be left for friends and family. To mature the product focus on the overall picture, instead of small issues that are irrelevant. Choose multiple software tools to perform your job functions more effective and efficiently.
