    Pros

    Outstanding senior level management growing an organization that is enterprise product centric wrapped with professional services and customer support. This company employs core Java and Open Source technologies to create efficient modular application products. They are priced in the middle tier while competing with the ERP Vendors.

    Cons

    Growing pains while forging ahead to their goal. Employees have to grab hold of this company and trust the ship will reach it's destination as long as the crew does their job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Position the products to deliver programs and benefits to assist the government in establishing a truly market driven healthcare system.

    The paid time off policy is generous and uncapped. Employees share the burden of staying the course, doing their jobs and establishing the legacy of a sustainable force in the Health and Human Services space.

    I worked at EngagePoint full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    I guess the benefits were good, HR response was quick on most issues because the company isn't that big.

    Cons

    Here are the major issues I found:
    a. Management was extremely interested in muscle-flexing and politics: There was very little interest in personal growth of employees. Most of the time I found myself caught between muscle flexing between senior level management allowing no room for growth or opportunity that was promised. Other people noted similar experience.
    b. There is virtually no vetting of prospective employees: Prospective employees are not vetted resulting in people being hired that are not fit for the job, Several examples of this have been found
    c. Not reputable anymore: Company's reputation in the industry is declining fast. Projects are drying up and there are no new contracts awarded to this company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You are a consulting firm. Your consultants are your most valuable asset. Treat them right and give them opportunity to grow. You don't need 10 VPs in the company; you need a few honest upper management people that can steer things and build trust among your clients.

    Pros

    None. Whatever you hear when they hire you is far from reality.

    Cons

    Incredibly bad project management. Walls between teams. Unresponsive co-workers. No work-life balance. You'll be expected to cancel a vacation (if you ever get any) and work holidays. 24/7 coverage is expected when issues arise which can literally be any time of the night or day.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop writing fake reviews! Have some respect for employees stop treating them like cattle.

    Pros

    Pretty good pay. Good opportunities to express your ideas and make a difference. Fast paced work environment. Chance to work on something exciting. Great learning experiences. CEO seems to really care about his people.

    Cons

    You must remain flexible and be willing to change directions as the projects, clients and market demand it. Upper mgmt won't tolerate incompetence, but if you are good you will be rewarded. All the negative reviews you see here are from folks who couldn't cut it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep listening to members of the team at all levels. The people who are boots-on-the-ground often know what is going on the best. Avoid tunnel vision. Be more communicative.

    I have been working at EngagePoint full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    The innovation, anticipated growth, progressive technology, and the complex initiatives make EngagePoint's product development and solutions noteworthy. Working alongside highly technically competent professionals and achieving technical advancements in the Healthcare Insurance industry that have never been accomplished in I.T. history and knowing that these solutions will impact and benefit a large segment of the U.S. population make this an enriching and fulfilling journey.

    Cons

    There are frequent changes in direction as required to respond to changing industry demands, since many of the regulations are still being nailed down and fine tuned EngagePoint and those who work here are required to be agile, flexible, and nimble.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Engage with your team members more and attempt to incorporate their problem solving ideas and strategies into our overall approach as a company.

    Pros

    None. You can easily find a decent company to work for and avoid this dump.

    Cons

    Do you like to be screamed at or being fired without any reason? There is no work-life balance, culture or values. There is only tons of lies and false promises. Its' only matter of time before someone files "Hostile Work Environment" lawsuit.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do something else.

    Failure in leadership

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at EngagePoint full-time

    Pros

    Very few pros over the past 6-12 months. The company was doing OK but has too few customers which makes the company very unstable.

    Cons

    Leadership is flighty and changes their minds monthly because they lack strategic direction from a management, sales, and growth perspective. They also have products and services that are not a good fit for state customers, so it is hard to get new sales.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get a new CEO and executive management team. The current team is not a set of leaders - they are a set of followers who blindly do what the boss says.

    If You Are Guided By Professional Ethics - Avoid EngagePoint At All Costs .

    I worked at EngagePoint full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Very talented and committed technology staff.

    Good benefits and compensation package, (as long as you don't question management, or corporate direction).

    Cons

    Unethical corporate ethics. Religiously misrepresents company's product and financial strength to customers and investors.

    Lack of diversity and an overall inflexibility to embrace employee feedback.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to front-line and project-based staff's feedback. Avoid "living in an imaginary corporate bubble" far removed from the needs of customers and the maturity of the products being sold.

    Embrace diversity, which includes 'diversity of ideas' - not just other forms of diversity.

    EngagePoint, Inc. is beyond the "growing pains" stage, the challenges are cancerous across Corporate Management.

    I worked at EngagePoint as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    I liked a few of the employees. The customer seemed to be pretty professional. The product was interesting, but . . .

    Cons

    Absolutely no process.
    Not poor, not terrible but horrible management.
    Lots of backstabbing.
    Poor communication; pointing fingers at each other.
    Thrown together 'project' like I have never seen in my 20-year career. Not sure how they even landed the contract.
    Management made decisions on the fly--no thought process at all that led to very poor decisions.
    Agile!! What agile???
    Development, QA and every step that it took to deploy the product was and probably still is awful. (Poor customer!)
    Another reviewer mentioned "filthy place to work". True!

    Pros

    Bi-Monthly Pay and Self-Service Benefits Enrollment

    Cons

    High Employee Turnover Rate - Poor leadership creates uncomfortable work environment
    Racial Profiling - Jefferson City, MO Location (Don't Know about other locations) - Especially in senior positions (CEO is an Asian still some Directors and Managers in Jefferson City Location don't want to even sit next to an Asian in management meetings - “Unfortunate Culture ”)

    Hire & Fire companies don't survive long
