I have been working at SciQuest full-time (less than an year)

Pros

New managment is straightening out a lot of what was out of whack in the past.
Benefits, gym membership, sporting event tickets and beer Fridays are great!
People who work hard and meet their commitments are rewarded.

Cons

Integrating multiple acquisitions in one year is a challenge, but not impossible. Departments are somewhat insulated and it makes communication difficult at times.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Ignore the sour grapes from ex-employees. From their tone, I would imagine that many of them left by mutual agreement. As clueless as some of them think management are, it is obvious they are equally as clueless about what it takes to run a company and keep it growing.

    I have been working at SciQuest full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Great work/life balance in my department; creative, passionate and motivated employees; thriving company that is continually hiring; innovative products; excellent benefits (hockey tickets, baseball tickets, beer Fridays) loyal customers; annual customer user conference continues to grow year after year. If you have a strong work ethic, and enjoy playing a role in the growth of a successful company, you will be happy here.

    Cons

    With two acquisitions in the last year, there are challenges with integrating remote offices and products, but it's not impossible.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Lots of positive management changes in recent months; keep moving forward with integrating products and recently-acquired companies.

    I have been working at SciQuest full-time

    Pros

    Good people to work with, free gym membership, pretty good health benefits

    Cons

    Managers spend most of their time in meetings. No real career opportunities. Negotiate your salary well before you start, there is little opportunity to increase it later. HR and policies are antiquated for a software company. Executives are completely out of touch.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ask people what they think and respond. Clean house a little at the top.
