    Satisfying but hard work

    Material Handler (Former Employee) Boston, MA

    ProsGreat co-workers. Dedicated to their job. Management works well together to accomplish goals. Satisfying to know your work is helping someone in need

    ConsTough work/life balance. Never know how long your day will be. Company is very big so it's hard to make your voice heard

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep employees in the loop about important decisions and listen to what they have to say.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Good Company, Great Product, Too much process and paperwork

    Implementation Engineer (Former Employee)

    ProsGreat Software, Great people, fair compensation, Good work/life balance. I would go back for the right opportunity.

    ConsIf you're great at your job, you may have trouble getting promoted. There's a lot of internal process and paperwork and more micromanagement than one should have to endure.

    Advice to Senior ManagementLet your employees do the job you hired them for. The micromanagement and paperwork are morale killers. Go back to salaries and you'll save money or quit worrying about OT and improve job performance. You can't have both.

    Floundering Company

    Software Engineer (Current Employee) Durham, NC

    ProsSmall teams, clear delineation of duties, very laid back atmosphere.

    ConsThere is an organization change once every three months and each time they change the name and roles of the business unit. This company has no clue how to compete with the likes of Epic and Cerna. They are in the process of liquidating their previous flagship product in place of one they acquired, and that includes ending the employment of their development team working on the previous solution. There will be more layoffs in the future, I'm certain.

    I heard the benefits are lacking compared to other Fortune 500 companies.

    Advice to Senior ManagementI understand why you need to consolidate solutions, but when you layoff employees when you are still supporting and upgrading the older solutions, then you are asking for customer dissatisfaction. Good luck with that.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Advice to Senior ManagementListen to your employees. Don't make decisions in a vacuum.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
