Pros

Property Solutions offers a casual environment with lots of perks - free food, massages, etc. The company and culture are young and the industry has much room for growth.

Cons

Because the company is young, they are going through growing pains. However, they have a great revenue model and can afford to make some mistakes without taking down the company.

Advice to Management

Work on your growth plan. New hires that have not been with a company at the early growth stages will struggle to understand their role.

    Might be great in other areas of the company, but life in Product Development is pretty horrible

    Pros

    They offered me a fair base salary. There are a few really great people that work here. Free Costco food every Monday (not a huge plus but nice nonetheless). Company lunches from time to time. Interesting culture in the company as a whole (flash-mobs, YouTube videos, etc.)

    Cons

    There is absolutely NO work/life balance in the development organization. Over half of the Product Development Managers, Product Managers, and Architects survive on 3-4 hours of sleep. The days are not only long but they run most of the day then start up again at 10PM to anywhere from midnight to 4AM.

    Very sub-par benefits (Health, Dental, Time Off accrual).

    CEO is far too "in the weeds" in the day to day operations on the software development side. He'll stay up all night and completely revamp core systems on a whim which causes havoc for everyone in the org. He "bootstraps" the company which translates to sharing hotel rooms with other guys when travelling, no corporate cards, no reimbursement for job related training, and the possibility of sleeping on the floor at an apartment in India on your required month long trip once per year.

    CEO also loves to have anyone and everyone genuflect him constantly so you end up with entry level employees with a huge voice in the company's direction. He needs to hire a CEO and change his title to Developer or Architect at best or get out of the code.

    Advice to Management

    Be more upfront with candidates about the horrible work/life balance. Make sure that they are experienced with nightly long calls with teams in India. Get the CEO out of the day to day development processes. Start spending some of the company's huge profits on basic niceties like private hotel rooms, paid training, and a competitive benefits package.

    Pros

    Young company with potentially strong product. Free food sometimes. Usually good coworkers. Okay base salary.
    Good HR department, congenial.
    Okay benefits.

    Cons

    Very difficult work environment, at least in the sales department. Management has no sales experience, promotions based on seniority, regardless of performance. Several people fired or demoted without clear reason. No training for new employees.
    No transparency, decisions made behind closed doors.
    No open door policy.
    Hiring is based completely on gut reaction by unqualified interviewers.
    Extremely non-diverse sales department.
    This could be a plus or minus. Those who performed well were not recognized or rewarded. Those who did not perform were able to keep not performing for months. When bonuses did come, they were awarded based on drawings or luck. This job rewards non-performance, at least right now while things are so disorganized. So there is less pressure than a normal sales job, but no stability.
    Sales areas were very confusing, and leads were constantly being redistributed until no one seemed to have enough leads, but the company kept hiring, even while no one performed.
    They moved to Lehi right after I was hired. Really inconvenient for a Provo family to suddenly have a commute. I hope they can turn it around somehow, because the product is great and I enjoyed serving my customers. But the sales department is just not a safe place right now for anyone serious about a sales career.

    Advice to Management

    The Big Deals club needs to go. It's really embarrassing to see management acting like that, creating a clique that arbitrarily selects 'cool people' based on things like personal fashion, golfing ability, and randomly rejecting people. It's not high school.
    Get actual Sales management in your sales department. It needs a complete overhaul.
    Real management works even harder than the employees. Sets the example, makes people work harder just to impress them and be like them.
