100% of the CEO
I worked at IRIS Software Group
Pros – Broad scope of responsibilities, employee development schemes eg leadership programme, change environment attempting to improve communication. Industry standard benefits
Cons – Some restructuring aspects did not produce all the planned benefits due to reduction in employee retention rate
Advice to Senior Management – Review employee retention rates for each business unit and address specifically. Recruitment technique to identify personalities that adapt to change
Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

I worked at IRIS Software Group full-time for more than 10 years
Pros – Salary is reasonable and bonuses have been paid in the past
Cons – A series of unintegrated acquisitions in the legal sector by Computer Software Group (CSG) were compounded by the backers of the solid IRIS accountancy business acquiring CSG in the mistaken belief accountants and lawyers were in any way similar. After several years of announcing and reversing strategies, offshoring then onshoring development and allowing the talent and industry expertise to walk away in despair, the two sides were demerged again. Morale, already low, is presumably now rock-bottom, and software releases are slower to emerge than ever.
Advice to Senior Management – Replace the management team?

I have been working at IRIS Software Group
Pros – It's Location and tranquillising environment. Generally the staff are very friendly and are often encouraged to contribute to improvements. It does have a leadership programme but on completion no career progression is guaranteed nor probable. IRIS is lead by some exciting and competent board. Career progression almost remote and you are likely to be in a role for a very long time indeed.
Cons – Some departments have it easy whereas some of the department deliver a similar function are allowed more flexibility and less pressure. It generally in my opinion underpays its staff however on a positive side is against any redundancy. It is financially sound however there have been some report of poor product quality.
Advice to Senior Management – Conduct a pay review across all the departments and have a more meaningful and structured career path. The board needs to be made aware of the 'real' situation that is going around.
