Not a fun place to work if you're in the wrong department.

Pros

I made some good friends while at SciQuest and keep in touch with them to this day. It's become customary for myself and other former employees to share a drink with then current employees who finally escape SciQuest.

Cons

Not enough allotment of words in this field to begin to enumerate, I think the negative reviews submitted by other current/former employees sum things up nicely. There's a new recruitment video available on the careers page at SciQuest, from someone in the know, please don't even sip the kool-aid. Run, don't walk away from open opportunities at SciQuest.

Advice to Management

The weaker half/clique of the executive team should stop cowering to the stronger half. They simply have no spine to back and support the best interests of their respective departments and the employees they represent..

    Pros

    Nice people but not fast paced or up-to-date

    Cons

    Not an interesting place to work

    Advice to Management

    You need to hire people that are more excited and innovative. People need to feel inspired. I think that this could be a good company with the right leadership

    Pros

    They have great benefits, free soda and coffee and beer friday. The culture is fairly laid back as well. A lot of the development staff have been there for a long time and are good people.

    Cons

    There really isn't anywhere to go in development. There are only so many spots. Also their technology is aging a bit, although it does work.

    Advice to Management

    It's probably time to begin reinvesting in development. Technologies are aging. Maybe send some people to conferences, or allow more people to work on thinking projects, other than the architects.
