    Innovative, Super Smart Company Poised for Success

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Houston, TX

    ProsThe people at PROS are amazing. Most are warm, engaging and super smart. PROS customers are genuinely excited about the software - it's such a great feeling to hear customers talk about how much your work has helped them, both personally and professionally. The work is challenging but exciting at the same time. PROS gives it employees lots of flexibility on their work schedule.

    ConsSome team members are overly reactive (pendulum swinging, fad chasing), compensation is in-line with market not above it, with growth comes growing pains.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep doing what you are doing, stay positive, be mindful of those that criticize who aren't so strong themselves.

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

    Organizationally needs improvement

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    Houston, TX

    ProsFlex work hours, free snacks and other perks, smart and friendly colleagues.

    ConsLots of unqualified people playing manager roles, don't look to grow people, lack leadership skills, lack vision and focus. Career paths are unclear. Heavy politics. Tense environment around managers.

    Advice to Senior ManagementConsider reorganizing based on Meritocracy, and define clearly the career paths.

    Decent but could be better

    (Current Employee)

    ProsGood pay
    Free snacks and beverages
    Lots of company event
    Flexible hours, work from home

    ConsNot very good at documenting their processes. This makes it difficult to train new people and follow through with improvements.
    Teams don't communicate well. Many simply don't have a good grasp on where their responsibilities end and begin.
    Don't like the work area, very noisy. No cubical, just desks facing one another separated by a low shelf.

    Fantastic place to work

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Houston, TX

    ProsFantastic people, great environment. There is a tacit agreement that we are all in this together, and haven't seen any of the normal "blame game" situations you hear elsewhere.

    Very smart people, it seems like recent hires (at least in my area) have focused greatly on taking the company culture to the next level of innovation.

    I don't have enough experience to have a good reference on compensation, but I have no complaints about it. I believe health benefits are pretty normal, but not fantastic.

    ConsSmaller company, so you don't get some of the big perks of a big company (daycare, PTO rolling over every year, other fringe benefits), but nothing that is not made up for by a great work environment.

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

    Dysfunctional

    Manager (Current Employee)
    Houston, TX

    Pros+Excellent people
    +Nice perks (free snacks, ice cream, etc)
    +Good location (Houston office)
    +Good products with satisfied customers
    +Growth company that's doing very well financially
    +Excellent internship programs
    +Culture and values are great

    Cons-Extremely disorganized
    -Senior management are very reactive and never follow through with a plan
    -Compensation not very competitive
    -Little room to grow; still a small company at heart
    -Lack of communication between groups
    -Difficulty making decisions
    -Internal politics becoming a big problem
    -Expect employees to work long hours; poor work/life balance
    -Very high turnover

    Advice to Senior ManagementDelegate. If you want the company to grow at the rate that's being communicated to Wall Street, the same three people can't be making every single decision. The lack of trust senior management has in employees is detrimental to morale and hurting productivity.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
