The people are great, but career path for those who aren't software developers is limited.

Pros

Great people mostly, great parties, great benefits, decent bonuses. Love the products and everyone else does too, lots of customer love and pride in where you work.

Cons

Money if you aren't a developer or in sales. Lots of differences of value to the company of different departments, and if you are in one of the not-valued departments, you feel like you're on the outside looking in at a really great place to work.

    Pros

    Great benefits, good pay in development.
    Tons of non-monetary benefits (casual environment, flex time, a commitment to work/life balance).

    Cons

    No clear career growth opportunities outside of moving into management.
    Lack of leaders among management.
    Low salaries outside of development.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    For young employees, you're competing with a national job market, not just the local Michigan one. To retain and attract future leaders, spend a little money and make them think of TechSmith as a place where they can build a career.

    Pros

    The majority of the non-managerial staff are great people to work with, PTO is very easy to use with little to no given notice, the offices are located in a very comfortable/safe area, paid medical (no vision), company parties have booze?

    Cons

    Career growth is very limited to whom you know - not what you know, the managers are mostly incompetent, the executives are snide and talk down to employees, pay is not on par with other companies, they are a software company with no vision insurance for employees, they expect full loyalty to their company and return nothing on what they promise, professionalism is non-existant.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    fire most of what you have and start over.
