    Pros

    The people here are nice. Great collaborative atmosphere. Very flexible with regard to family life. For the people who have been here a long time, it's almost like family, and your coworkers taken and interest and pride in your life outside of work.

    Cons

    Senior management changes often, bringing new policies and updated philosophy. Compensation has stayed the same and perhaps even gotten worse.

    Technologically, we've fallen behind. Our business expertise and our depth of knowledge cannot be beat, but it's not appreciated by the senior maanagement.

    Advice to Management

    Compensation is the most important issue for employees. Everything else is less important.

    Pros

    Very employee driven, will keep employees happy. Very understanding about PTO. If working here aim to be a business management because they barely come to work but get paid full time. Basically free money, They let majority of them work from home.

    Cons

    Do not short sell yourself or you will be stuck with that salary until you are able for promotion which will be about 8-10 years later. Some senior managers are mean and don't care about your feelings and upper management will do nothing about it because they know so much about the software.

    Advice to Management

    promote from within especially those who are going to school to earn advancement opportunities. Stop showing favortism to senior employees just because you're buddies

    Pros

    Generally good people to work with and challenging work depending on the role. Still a good work/life balance for most. Not a lot of politics though there is more than in the past.

    Cons

    Endless series or reorganizations and downsizing the last 10 years. This doesn't necessarily affect your individual role on a daily basis but the trend is toward continually smaller benefits and more work (which could be said for many companies I suppose). Those who have worked there a long time see all the $ flowing to the very top management tiers and investors now while the other 99% are being continually squeezed.

    Advice to Management

    Share the wealth!

    Pros

    Great work life balance, employees and entry level salaries. Attempts are being made to improve the office culture. PTO days and other benefits.

    Cons

    No room for growth. Many of the entry level positions offer very little challenge or potential for advancement.

    Advice to Management

    Improve compensation and office culture.
