    Pros

    They take great care of the people that fit in well with an aggressive sales culture. They are committed to the sales culture and make their numbers which results in overall success for the company. The work is challenging.

    Cons

    In a support role that is not sales driven, it's difficult to gain respect. Those without a sales background will find some of the sales tactics questionable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management and the sales teams need to take more opportunities to acknowledge the people in Accounting, Human Resources, Marketing and IT that really put in a lot of long hours supporting the sales teams.

    Pros

    I loved the entrepreneurial spirit of Optimus. High focus on teamwork and closing deals together. Excellent compensation for your work and fun, creative awards such as the Porsche club and going on a trip.

    Cons

    The constant and incessant drive to grow, grow, grow. Which I suppose was in order to be sold. I would have preferred we stayed agile and focused on our strengths and perhaps compromised huge growth for keeping our team together, strong and positive. Now that we are Softchoice, all that matters is numbers. You are a number and you'd better produce numbers. Period. I have introduced myself to the CEO of Softchoice no less than 12 times and he has never remembered me and has responded each time "Oh - nice to meet you." As one of the top producers at the company, I find this completely insulting and tactless. I do not feel valued at Softchoice like I did when we were Optimus.

    Pros

    Optimus has a culture unlike any other company. It felt like a family. You didn't feel like you were competing with others, everyone was working together towards the same goal. There wasn't strick process that constantly had to be followed. Everyone was happy to come to work.

    Cons

    We were sold to a large corporation and with that came PROCESS. There is a process for everything. There are way to many people that will only do the few things in their actual job description and will not think out of the box. No one will do anything that is not their specific job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let's get back to the good old days. Let's feel like a family again rather than a corporation. I think all employees would be much happier if we could go back to the way things use to be.....and with happiness comes success.

    I worked at Optimus Solutions

    Pros

    Worked for President of the company, and they were always mentoring, sharring, and promoting personal growth. Even during tough and difficult times, we all worked together to get the job done and always put the client first. Employees at all levels could go directly to HR or the President and they would listen and find ways to carefully resolve issues or conflects, this kept the manager humble and grounded.

    Cons

    Very difficult and competitive marketplace, so it really requires aggressive and never say die attitudes. Clients were treated very well and the management made sure that was priority one. So many wonderful people in operations, sales, back office and managers. I really enjoyed the leadership of the President!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Selling the Optimus company to Softchoice was perhaps a mistake and now the Optimus division does not have the same culture or positive image it once had, and is losing very good employees and may lose very valuable clients.

    Pros

    Friendly atmosphere. Open doors of experienced professionals.

    Cons

    When I worked there, some of the senior management was lacking direction and vision in my department. Recently, however, Optimus has been bought by a separate company and those managers who contributed to the lack of vision are no longer around. Optimus is now a much better place to work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up with market trends; establish a vision for the company based on your understanding of the market; and communicate that vision not only to middle management, but to every level of your staff.
