Product concept is interesting/compelling, but making it work in real life is very challenging

Pros

The central idea behind the product is compelling. SAP resells it so even though the company is small, they get some big company advantages when it comes to sales and marketing.

Cons

Product is hard/complicated to install and maintain. It is really more of a framework for pricing than a finished product. Lots of customization is required, and as a result, time to benefit is long, and it becomes very hard to install new versions or take advantage of new features.

Customer expectations are often not set appropriately during the sales cycle, leading to fire drills during implementation.

    I have been working at Vendavo full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    actual working people in engineering are awesome.

    There is a break room which has a good combination of fruits,coffee, tea, junk, etc

    You get $200 gift card to your favorite restaurant if you put in 60+ hours a week. Lunch is included when working on weekends at the office.

    Cons

    Vendavo was founded in 1998. While the company might have grown since then, lately it has stagnated. Upper management is useless. Seems like they have no idea what they want their product to do. Engineers are blamed when the product doesn't launch in time. People are leaving(quitting) every other week. For every employee that leaves MV (hq) office, their work is outsourced to CZ.

    Little to no bonus/ pay raise.

    If you want to move up the chain, good luck with that because there is no process for it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop posting fake reviews on glassdoor. Focus on the employees and perhaps have a better appreciation of their work and long hours they put in.
