    The Company's vision may be lacking for some of the lines of business. Very stressful environment to make sure the numbers are met on a quarter to quarter basis

    Pros

    Good benefits, time off and sabbatical.

    Cons

    I had very close relationships with the executives and know first hand they cannot wait to sell the company. Some execs are good people but some are all about revenue and it never seems enough revenue to pay a bonus to its people. The CEO is smart but the COO loves himself more than anything. The COO is driving this company to the ground and is the reason it is falling apart. Sad to see as there are long time employees that loved the old Flexera. - Execs discuss areas where they can "cut" people and "eliminate" roles every quarter just so they can meet revenue and avoid the word "layoff".

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your people. Your HR management (HR partners/managers) is sub-par, untrustworthy and no one has faith in them. Realize you are falling apart and make the right changes. You cannot keep cutting people to meet revenue.

    Pros

    The company is clearly growing both in size and marketshare, which is encouraging. Most employees enjoy a fair amount of flexibility to enhance their work-life balance. Great benefits and very friendly and engaging colleagues.

    Cons

    Very little recognition if you are in a non-revenue-generating role; executives focus more on their specific ares and departments rather than the company as a whole.

    Pros

    great people, good culture, good work/life balance and a fun committee!

    Cons

    We have lost our mojo over the last year or two and a bunch of people within the company have moved, or were forced, to pursue other opportunities. New "modern" open office is a bit depressing with all the empty cubes that are clearly visible as you walk around.

    Pros

    Balance between work and life Pretty good opportunities to learn and implement new technologies Since the company is moving to cloud, there are chances of learning more

    Cons

    Always Focus on EBIDTA for bonus Sometimes the focus shifts entirely to one department and again sometimes the entire focus moves to other Decent benefits Time-Off policies needs to be improved Career opportunities to grow are very limited

    Advice to Management

    Many companies are at a pretty good status and still this company is running under private organizations.

    Pros

    Compensation was average. Good team work culture in the trenches.

    Cons

    Executive is extremely poor. Operations and HR especially. Don't bother to voice any concerns because 1) they're not confidential and 2) you'll get forced out of the company. Very back stabbing culture. Any suggestions or advice to move the company along is considered your ticket out.

    Advice to Management

    Replace aging senior management in Operations and HR with a younger crowd that has had success in execution and motivation. Shouldn't be hiring management to learn on the job.

    Pros

    Decent compensation, good benefits, well-known products. Good investments in technology and sales.

    Cons

    Managers with equity shares make ruthless decisions for their personal benefit. Laid off 10% of employees so those remaining can get their bonuses; but then they're expected to pickup the slack, even though they're already over-burdened. Moved to "open office" concept so senior management can keep tabs on who's in the office. Company provides laptop and iPhone, but then expect you to be available even on vacation. Work from home policy not consistently applied. Middle managers are pawns of senior management, often employing negative motivational techniques and managing by fear and intimidation.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to trust your employees; they're more dedicated than you think, but employee satisfaction is on the decline. Creating a more positive environment by treating employees with respect (positive motivation) will benefit all.
