I worked at Pervasive Software full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Decent benefits and some great co- workers.

Cons

Too many to list. Don't work here. Especially in the Integration Division.

Advice to Management

Get someone to run the Integration Division who actually cares about employees (and not just the male ones.)

    Pros

    Vast amounts of technilogical learning possible Insight into other industries (non-technology sector focused) Career networking possiblies with other companies Benefits not too bad for company size Physical employee resources kept up to date with latest technologies

    Cons

    Business unit needs not evenly balanced Learn to say no, not everything needs to be a yes Train all employees properly on what/how/why of their role and the proper methods to perform their individual duties Ethics needs to be instilled at management level and transmitted to contributors Tends to be more focused on numbers than the people. Make commitments that make sense for the growth of the company beyond a number focus

    Advice to Management

    Let go of the employees who cause more harm than good, keep the valued employees who repeatedly put 110%+ effort into the company and strive on a daily basis to improve the company, the products made, and the customer experience.

    Pros

    Pervasive has a strong culture of nurturing those who are passionate about their careers. Employees that are interested in bettering themselves and developing as a professional in their field will feel at home amid a culture of constant improvement and personal growth. This makes the company an especially good opportunity for entry level employees, since their good habits are reinforced from day one by the company's experienced staff (senior employees are highly encouraged to serve as mentors); it also contributes to the promote from within mentality that is prevalent. The company has a "reap what you sew" mentality, so employees are allowed to enjoy the benefits of their effort. Management is upfront and clear in expectations and feedback is forthcoming and constructive. The general situation at the company is made all the better by the strong market demand for its products. In sum, Pervasive offers employees the opportunity and freedom to create their success and benefit from dedication and hard work - the accelerators are fantastic!

    Cons

    In many ways, Pervasive is a large start up. Such a culture has a lot of great things to offer but there are some annoying aspects as well. The persistent reliance on "Tribal Knowledge" is case in point. Although it is better than it used to be, the company still struggles to scale up its new employee training and dissemination of what works and what doesn't. As a result, new employees are somewhat forced to scavenge the old fashioned way for the most effective strategies. Finally, there are some practices that I don't quite fully understand. The company has a resistance to hiring remote employees which seems a bit out of place in 2012.

    Advice to Management

    Double down investment in your employee's professional development. Keep breaking down the silos between the various divisions; everyone will benefit from more cross-pollination. Keep investing in the high growth areas of your business.
