    Pros

    The people are great to work with. I had one of the best bosses at any place I've worked.

    Cons

    Recently sold, new culture is aimed at recent college grads and not towards mid-level careers. Lots of people were let go, and many others have left.

    Advice to Management

    Keep your senior people - you need SMEs. Embrace the success of remote culture - Austin is a great town, but you have an entire country of excellent employees already.

    Pros

    Working from home, dress code, commute

    Cons

    Working from home..... this can get old quickly, poor training techniques. Everything seems to be very reactionary and not thought out very well. That is the most surprising since so many little things are over analyzed and micromanaged to the point where it's hilarious, until of course you realize you're waist deep in it yourself. You'll see a salary offer higher than what you may from other jobs simply because they have a hard time keeping people, I remember one month seeing 6 employees leave, which for company of 80 people or so is a lot. Management seems to move around very often too, which is unsettling if you're an employee, everything always seems to have a hint of shadiness to it as well. For myself I had planned to evaluate the job after an extended period of time, but within 3-4 months I realized that they didn't really seem like a very good company to work for and the type of work that I was doing, was basically a dead end unless I planned to sign on for the long haul. I really think there would be more turn over here, but I'd guess 60-70% of the people do stay on for the ability to work from home. For me it wasn't worth it, I tried to think back to a previous job that I absolutely dreaded going to more and I could not match it, not even when I was washing dishes as a 16 yr old for the summer.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on actually being a better company and skip the dog and pony show

    Pros

    Working from home provides great work-life balance. There are growth opportunities for those that want to learn. Although the training plans are extensive, you control the implementation and there are many resources available to make sure you are successful. The benefits are above average and very affordable.

    Cons

    Although video is used extensively for meetings, some miss the personal face to face interaction.

    Advice to Management

    Learn from bad hire mistakes so that they aren't repeated.

    Pros

    Getting to work from home was nice at first. Then you realize you can't network with anyone because you have no time to actually talk with your co-workers.

    Cons

    Where do I begin. First they are incredibly false and sneaky when it comes to your performance. They will fire you without warning. They have this idea that if you don't do things exactly their way then you are in fact wrong. For example you must write emails their format or they are "unprofessional". They claim to have this great robust training program, don't believe it for a second it is totally false. They give you a list of stuff to do on your own and then never help you with any of it. Then expect you to know as much as the people that have been there for years. Upper management makes very irrational decisions. For example hiring someone to a management role that has absolutely 0 experience with the company and knows less than most of the employees they already have. This same person they hired also came in and tired to changed the all mighty 4 rivers way and they were totally oblivious to it because he fed them a bunch of lies. They are not a very robust company. They really only have 1 product (their CMMS) that sells. The 2 other products are not up to industry standards (not my opinion but that of many people in the industry I came in contact with) so they are a 1 trick pony. Also them being only healthcare focused they are running out of potential new customers. I promise you that if you take this job you can not make any money.

    Advice to Management

    Don't lie to your employees. Also instead of hiring someone to a management position that is totally new to the company maybe you should look into hiring from within.

    Pros

    The only pro is when you leave.Upper management runs the company for themselves .They have huge turnover. Still claiming HCA as a customer because they purchased perpetual software license years ago, never mind that HCA no longer uses or buy maintenance

    Cons

    If you take a job with these guys keep looking management is never satisfied and you will have 4-5 hours a day of training followed by MICROMANGEMENT. Every call is logged via the PC, every key stroke, every E mail, and they expect you to blog every day on what you learned and how you can do better. This place is THE BORG

    Advice to Management

    You are in a dead market sell out.
