    Pros

    Very flexible work days and ability to work from home.
    Time off is granted when requested
    Office is nice
    Colleagues are really amable

    Cons

    Acquisitions are painful and many employees are left with much ambiguity as to their role, lack of direction, career path and/or growth and even opportunity to prove themselves
    Lack of consistency in communication or managing decisions
    Do not "drink their own champagne"
    Imbalance in work distribution- some organizations such as Customer Support are overworked and understaffed and others like Professional Services leaves many with little work to do.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You are a HRIS leader and your top product is Performance and Goal Management-- this tool should be used to do a deeper evaluation of ALL employees which should include your Management team including 360 reviews. There are a lot of a**holes occupying higher level positions and yet nothing is done about this but the impact it has on your workforce is higher turnover. People want to believe the dogma you are selling but when they have no sense of security in their position because of managers keeping them down- then they look elsewhere for opportunities.

    Pros

    Great people who work hard, casual environment, cool projects, passion for the work. Fun place with great benefits.

    Cons

    This place is run sort of like high school, where the popular kids get all the attention and accolades and promotions. Everyone (even the popular kids) have way too much work on their plates. Forecasting includes no bench time and the best employees get burned out because they care so much.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire more people and create some repeatable processes.
