Pros

Good people in management for the most part. Very personal and interested in you as a person (not all departments are like this, but most are). A person can get exposure to different departments if they want to. A person needs to be up front to get that, but I have found that very little is denied those who ask for it. Also, management seems to respond favorably to those who take initiative. IT is paid very well in general and seem all seem to be very pleased with the monetary portion of their compensation package. Upper Management gets great perks.

Cons

Lower salaries. High stress environment. Long work hours.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Improve the benefits package.

    Pros

    SaaS and Talent Management Leader. Innovative, focused, agressive and driven management. Generous Perfomance based compensation. Opportunity for advancement for self-starters. Mostly very competent, bright colleagues. Increasingly global focus.

    Cons

    Increasingly hierarchical corporate structure. Poor internal customer support. Poor employee onboarding, training and ongoing support. To be succesful you have to be independent, entrepreneurial and experienced. No formal career development, veteran's often passed over for management position in favor of new outside talent.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest more in customer service training and overall services delivery.

    HR Company with Poor HR Practices

    Pros

    One of the leading on demand software companies with a blue chip customer base. Company is public and stock has been doing fairly well this year, with positive analyst ratings.

    Cons

    Upper management treats employees poorly which is ironic given that they are in the HR space. Compensation strategy is to pay only at mid point, they are very stingy with stock options so only officers of the company make good money, while the rest of the employees make so-so money. CEO is tyranical and makes it a practice to publicly humiliate people in meetings.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Practice what you preach to your customers, talent is your best asset so take good care of it.
