LOW Compensation, LOW Communication, LOW Appreciation

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Gainesville, FL

ProsHA! I suppose the opportunity to receive a 1.5% Annual Bonus?

ConsMost everything. For an HR Software company, they IRONICALLY care very little about their Human Resources. They allow for lateral, but not upward movement throughout the company. Compensation is lowest in the industry. Their business model is to recruit new engineers and support staff right out of college to guarantee "Entry-Level" pay, which the do not increase unless inflation increases. They do NOT actually give you the "10% Annual Bonus" you are promised as part of your compensation package, and instead blame it on the poor health of the company (as if over $100million dollar profits are not enough to share). They only recognize live customer facing employees (such as the sales guys and the Executives) and never recognize the rest of the support staff that makes their efforts possible.

FALSE ADVERTISING. They do not follow their own slogan of "Talent is Boundless", as stated above where moving up throughout the company is nearly impossible. They pride themselves on not allocating raises bc "you are not doing your job well enough", which they never communicate to you until your annual review. Very poor management tactics. Obviously, they care more about keeping costs low than helping employees grow and develop with the company.
