Pros

Fun place to work, great atmosphere. Make your own hours. Overnight travel only as needed. Great coworkers. Uncapped commission is nice

Cons

Sales floor is a revolving door, have heard good and bad things about the product. Still in a startup mentality, strange for a 25 year company. Ramp up time is short, quick results expected.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

More feedback and training would be nice from management. It's hard to turn up something from pretty much nothing while putting out fires from previous projects and getting no credit.

No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Pervasive has a great community feel to it. Lunch parties 2-3 times a year, softball game every year, all sorts of fun events that go on nearly every quarter.

    Cons

    Pervasive is a great place to work if all you want to do is coast through your life, not really inventing or working on anything interesting. If you want a paycheck, and put in your 8-10 hours a day then Pervasive is perfect. If you are ambitious in anyway, forget it. There is no drive to exceed at Pervasive.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Aim for exceeding and growing, not being content

    Pros

    Good office location and very good working environment. Diversity of work exposes you to many cutting edge technologies. Managers regularly show group appreciation.

    Cons

    Never know where you stand with respect to performance. Training opportunities are rare. Limited advancement. Although Company is profitable (a great thing), revenue consistantly flat, even with good products.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Company revenue growth would seem like a good thing. The products are very good. But flat revenue growth for years? It seems like something, "the word" does not get out about the company and its products. Its almost as if senior management wants to stay a small company.
