    I have been working at LANDESK full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Everyone here is friendly and hardworking. Honestly, it feels like a big family here. They frequently bring in food and have snacks on hand for employees. They are very flexible with schedules, as long as work is being completed. Management is hard working and truly has a vision for the company.

    Cons

    Not many. Maybe more goal focused.

    I worked at LANDESK as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Great work environment, coworkers were friendly and my supervisor was pretty lenient on when our work got done as long as we were working.

    Cons

    Not a diverse amount of work to be done. While my time there was short I was pretty much doing similar work the whole time.

    No ethics. Treat employees incredibly bad. Sending all good jobs overseas.

    I have been working at LANDESK full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The flexible schedule is nice. Some managers appear to support their employees, part of the time but will stab them in the back at a moments notice. The water fountain dispensed warm water but they had an ice machine on the other side of the building.

    Cons

    The office space is horrible. You get next to no personal space, and you're encouraged to not bring books into your "office" ( that's so they can lay you off at a drop of a hat ).

    A big deadline was announced coming up in 6 weeks. It was a completely unreachable goal. I worked 15+ hours a day for a month and a half to get everything done. Near the deadline, they required us to work weekends too. We met the deadline, the next day I was expecting a big "GOOD JOB", but instead they laid off 2 of the 4 software engineers working on the project, with very little severance. The same day, new software engineers in China were added to the team ( yes I have proof ).

    About a year before that, they offered me a bonus if I completed a given project by a certain date. I completed all the requirements 2 weeks before the date they gave. I was told that the bonus would be in my next paycheck, but when the paycheck came there was no bonus, and the next paycheck, no bonus, and the next... still no bonus. That went on for 3 MONTHS. I eventually got my bonus, but it took lots of emails to management and HR.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn how to treat people. Value hard workers.

    Pros

    Company is growing steadily. Product continues to sale, and company is positioned strongly to continue viability. Lots of bright and talented individuals currently work here.

    Cons

    No individual growth from within. Management says that they have a goal to foster internal development and career paths, but then offers no support or training and will not promote from within the company.
    Very much a "good ol' boys club."

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Prove that you want to develop employees. Take action on your words.

    Pros

    Good software. Not great but good enough.

    Cons

    No MAC support and none coming! Only worried about how big they can make the company not about the products or people. VP and above only concerned with how they can get rich. Good old boy network. If you are in it you will be rewarded. If you are not, you will pay a big price. Will stab you to get what they want for the people in the network.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Care more about your number one asset, your people. They are only out to make their wallet fatter not their employees. Stop worrying about how big your pay check is and help you people make money. Your pay will go up with theirs.

    Pros

    Good benefits and time off. Great technology and happy customers. Motivated sales force. Smart and fun marketing peers.

    Cons

    Challenges with consistency of strategic direction being shared consistently with the rank and file or the everyday workers feeling they understood the plan. Lack of incentive plan for general employees. Looks like management stands to make money when company is sold but not all with benefit.
