Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at SERENA Software full-time for more than 3 years

ProsLoads of intelligent and friendly people. Good work/life balance.

ConsJust laid off 25% of the company.
Naive viewpoint of place in market- wants to constantly 'change the game' meanwhile- nobody knows who Serena is.
Constantly changing identity. Pick something and stick to it, you're confusing your customers!
Focus on ALM and Release Management is way too behind the times.

Advice to Senior ManagementFocus on the core platform. You're a BPM point provider, not a solution provider. Don't try to compete with the big boys, you're still a small fish.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Going down !!

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at SERENA Software full-time for more than 10 years


Pros: Loyal employees, flexible work schedule. Cons: Unsustainable trajectory for a successful business. Company clearly does not value employees over 400% turnover in last 5-10 years No salary increases or COL increases… Advice to Senior Management: Shame on you for contributing to the downfall of what was once a decent family friendly place to work.… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
