    Team work within the department is good and is getting better with other partners.

    Pros

    Good people, clean work environment

    Cons

    We make the same mistakes over and over. We are back to using an India development team. This almost put us out of business in the past and is looking like it is going down that path again. Sales are bad, products still don't integrate and development team is half a world away.

    communication needs to be better

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Making the communications better will be really helpful. The management policies should percolate to all the levels of employees.

    Pros

    Respectful of the work/life balance, although a great number of employees who are local are allowed to work from home when they feel like it.

    Cons

    The Senior Management Team seemingly isn't concerned with what isn't working when it comes to growing the business and has failed to act with a sense of urgency time and time again when programs, processes and or people are in place that/who negatively impair revenue.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Some of the answers to fix what isn't working with how to grow the business lies within most of the everyday workers. The Senior Management Team is out of touch with the day to day operations.

    Poor Management

    I have been working at Kewill Systems

    Pros

    Good people with strong skill sets

    Cons

    Management lacking in several areas.
    Sales management has caused the loss of the best sales people. 90% of the sales staff are green and this has had a huge impact on sales. The VP of sales is impossible to work for and cause the loss of a lot of good sales people. This has had a huge impact on the entire company and is really a shame that one person has been allowed to make such a negative impact.
    Customer loss has been steady due to product issues. With the loss of current customers and the lack of new customers the company will not remain viable for very long

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on selling and product quality. It has become critical to survival

    Good people, weak product set

    I have been working at Kewill Systems

    Pros

    Good pay, very flexible with time off for surgeries and other health related issues. Good group of people, good PSG team.

    Cons

    Products are very weak with no improvement in site. The Development Management team are very non technical and do not understand what it takes to have a stable product. The Flagship product has huge potential but it is very unstable at this point. It makes it very difficult for the Professional Services team to run successful implementations and actually make a decent profit margin.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Concentrate on product quality, replace DEV leadership from the top down. Time to thin the herd and get a new skill set to deal with product issues.
