    Former Contractor - Technical Writer in Brisbane (Australia)

    I worked at Gemcom Software as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    Friendly and helpful coworkers, and good communication between departments. Well-defined policies. Management is actively involved and cares about the well-being of employees. Has since merged with Dassault Systems, which should increase scope of opportunities within the company.

    Cons

    Coworkers were spread across different offices across the world, which made communication more difficult (limited to Skype and email often, and time differences were problematic at times).

    Pros

    Used to be a great place to work
    Some good colleagues below senior management, although more and more departing

    Cons

    Agree with previous poster that since CEO changed in 2002, things have changed considerably
    VPs and Directors are out of touch with workers.
    Senior Management work sideways and up.
    Senior Management completely out of touch with staff

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The people below senior management are the foundation of a company.
