    I have been working at Global Software full-time

    Pros

    Global seems to take effort to hire very smart, qualified and caring people. Everyone helps each other and gets to have a voice. It is a flexible environment where many are able to work from home full time or when needed.

    Cons

    The amount of employees at the headquarters location in Raleigh, NC is growing rapidly and we need a bigger space!

    Advice to Management

    I'm looking forward to the management's creativity to address our work space and growth needs at the Raleigh office location.

    Comfortable friendly work environment. Great benefits and retirement plans. Everyone who works there is caring and helpful. They allow you to work your schedule, and they are very accommodating when you have commitments.

    Pros

    I have yet to meet a person at Global Software unwilling to help, teach, or share learning experiences. People often stop by offices of other departments to say hello and ask about family, vacations and just to check in. Intelligent people and awesome product Good salary

    Cons

    There are pros and cons to every company, but I think it's hard to find a con worthy of a review. The people, product and work environment are great.

    Advice to Management

    It would be nice to have more outside company gatherings, but the company is overall run very well.

    Pros

    Global Software is a Management owed company. The leadership is experienced, compassionate and warm which is felt throughout the entire company...you are not just a number. Everyone has a voice to be heard where mutual respect is a way of life. Open-door policy where feedback, positive or constructionally critical is welcome by leadership. Opportunity for growth where majority of Director's/VP's were promoted from within. Very competitive benefits package and compensation. Global is a growing company with a philosophy of controlled growth where you do not lose sight of employees and customers needs. Global is a market leader in Excel based solutions with four decades in software development, thousands of customers and truly worldwide!

    Cons

    Global's worldwide HQ is based in the Raleigh/Durham/RTP area of North Carolina...it is very hot and humid here in the Summer!

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing. It is no wonder Global Software has been in business for over 40 years!

    I worked at Global Software full-time

    Pros

    Ability to work remote, flexible with work schedule if you have kids, pretty good market share in their industry

    Cons

    Family owned business, every single decision from top to bottom is emotionally charged. All decisions are micro-managed by the top tier of management, even though all departments have their own managers. Previously fired employees are welcomed back frequently, making it hard to trust or respect your coworkers. Very low opportunity for promotion, really difficult to advance your career. The initial job offer salary is pretty good but movement from that point is slow and sometimes non-existent. The HR department is anything but confidential. If you have any questions or concerns, there is no safe place to express it.

    Advice to Management

    All management should be under one roof. HR department should be run by non-biased employees.

    I worked at Global Software full-time

    Pros

    * Good value proposition in the marketplace * Good work life balance * Benefits and comp OK

    Cons

    * Family run business and it feels that way - life style business * Small development team no real innovation happening here * Limited upside potential both from career and income stand point

    Advice to Management

    Bring in outside leadership and capital Current leadership should be in corp HQ (Raleigh) not NY


  9. Global is a place where you are challenged, given opportunities to grow and excel in a family friendly work place.

    I have been working at Global Software full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Started working at the company with little to no experience in the industry and have been able to grow and within the company in a short amount of time. Work environment is enjoyable and flexible. Trusted to get the job done and not micromanaged. Happy customers and an excellent product allowing Global Software, Inc. to be the industry leader in Excel Automation.

    Cons

    Politics, but that comes with every company.

    Advice to Management

    Keep investing in your employees as well as your customers. Also, consider having more opportunities for gatherings to help connect more employees.

    I have been working at Global Software full-time

    Pros

    Niche software tool, doesn't try to spread itself too thin doing too many things. The employees have years experience in their field and aid to company credibility. If you ask for help, co-workers are more than happy to be involved and mentor.

    Cons

    Not specific to Global, but software companies in general, having several remote employees communication can be a challenge.

    I have been working at Global Software full-time

    Pros

    The people here are truly great people. Nobody takes themself too seriously, and you can work at your own pace. It's great for self-motivated people who enjoy setting goals and reaching them. Management is flexible to personal needs and supportive of employee well-being. Over-all, a wonderful place to work.

    Cons

    It's best if you come into Global with prior training/experience in your area. Management comes in consistently and is easily accessible, but there is no formal training program. You have to be ready to dive right in and get your feet wet by making your own mistakes.
