    I have been working at MasterControl

    Pros

    People care about people. Data driven goals. Very educated leadership with the employees also being educated. Great health benefits and even better work life balance.

    Cons

    No tuition reimbursement for the few going to school. They also don't match the 401k (but pay the administration fees).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the great work!

    I worked at MasterControl full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The company does a great job with scheduling events for their employees and company meetings were well constructed

    Cons

    Opportunity to advance was extremely limited. Advancement was based on seniority over actual performance. Higher level positions were filled with external applicants which led to decisions not centered on strong employees. Pay was not competitive with other similar positions outside of the company. Medical benefits will force employees to take out a second mortgage due to high deductible only plans.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote from within. Don't hire people to an executive level who have not been able to truly connect with current employees. Those type of decisions lead to loss of valuable employees that are tired of being nothing more than disposable chess pieces.

    I worked at MasterControl as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    Great managers, clear and attainable goals for the engineers, very competitive compensation, true work/life balance (no unspoken expectation to pull 60-70 hour weeks), very active social and fitness groups. The managers are all very available and communicative, and genuinely care about making sure your time as an intern is spent learning and contributing.

    Cons

    You're working in a language that isn't widely known/used, the product itself is huge so it can be a challenge to learn their code

    Pros

    People are empathetic, Management leads my example, Excellent Culture, Beautiful work space, Competitive pay, Location is right next to a major highway, Always enough parking space.

    Cons

    Benefits are competitive but could always be improved. The Benefit allowance is helpful, but only covers part of the cost of the premiums for families.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep compensation rates competitive and you'll keep your employees happy.

    I have been working at MasterControl as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    Some of the best managers and leaders that I have ever worked for. They really know how to bring the best out of their developers and to help them in any way possible. Very open in letting everyone know what is going on and the best plan to get things done.

    Cons

    Salary was lower than some other companies. Sometimes the tools to do jobs quickly and efficiently weren't there for people,

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You are a software company...make sure to treat the people who make that software well. That will help you out immensely.

    I have been working at MasterControl

    Pros

    Working at MasterControl has been a great experience where I have had the opportunity to gain many new skill sets and work with great people. The medical insurance is some of the best around and the amount of PTO is fantastic! Most years of my employment we have had a training budget as well which has come in very handy.

    Cons

    The few downsides of MasterControl are that there is no 401(k) matching and the pay is adequate but not near the top of the market.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get better market indicators during salary reviews, consider how you pay new employees vs. tenured employees, and consider a 401(k) matching program.
