    I have been working at PROS full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    You get to work with a lot of intelligent people who are willing to do what it takes. Potential for growth, however only if you are in Houston.

    Cons

    They are not accustomed to working with remote employees. If you're not there, you don't count. Management is on the fence as to what they are willing to sacrifice to take the next big step. The company is too small for the amount of politics.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take action to grow the company, even if it hurts in the short term. If they make the right choice the company will be very successful.

    Pros

    They make a lot of effort to make this a fun, collegial work environment. The host many employee events and several tech events. They are active in community outreach and allow employees to volunteer during work hours.

    Cons

    They are stuck with older technologies and are slowed by so much process it takes an eternity to get simple features built and released.

    Former Employee - Software Engineer in Houston, TX
    Former Employee - Software Engineer in Houston, TX

    I worked at PROS full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Get to work with a few good developers. Emphasis on writing clean and efficient code. Exposure to a lot of technologies. Get to work on interesting and challenging problems. One of the few core software development companies in Houston. Work experience and programming skills acquired at PROS look impressive on resume. Free soda, snacks and leftover lunch from client meetings.

    Cons

    Bonus and salary increments are small. Benefits are average. Cannot cash out PTO balance when you leave. Typical office politics, managers play favorites. Developers (and wannabe managers) occasionally follow latest fad and start promoting new technology without giving thought to its implementation. High probability that you will get boxed in one role and go nowhere even after spending a decade there. Workload is heavy, company puts a lot of pressure on developers in the name of keeping major airline clients happy.

    Pros

    It's a good place for new grads. As a new software developer, you will need to try your best to understand the system and the process. It's not that easy to pick up them.

    Cons

    In my perspective, the guidance is not enough.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If I had the chance to be mentor, I would be more than happy to help new people more.

    Pros

    Good benefit compare to other companies in Texas.

    Cons

    Have to learn lots of new tech to accomplish everyday work. However, most of time new employer will need to learn by themselves.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sometimes try to Listen to young people will result something new

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

    Pros

    Great place to get a start in software
    If you got stock or options, you are happy
    Airline group is a significant player in the industry

    Cons

    Poor salary / no stock
    Does not look good on your resume
    Extremely poor leadership. Get ready to walk into meetings unexpectedly and hear a VP yelling and screaming at you.
    Trying hard to expand solution footprint to very limited success thus far.
    Everybody's a Director or VP.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Adopt 360-degree review of leadership all the way up to CEO.

    I have been working at PROS

    Pros

    Great location, casual work environment, interesting technology, ability to work from home & flexible hours. The company is solid and growing.

    Cons

    The culture that everyone talks about is not what you're led to believe it is. It's very political, a number of managers don't know how to manage & it's hard to get straight answers. Some people are treated badly & there are no clear growth paths.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Develop a clear communication strategy & clean house. There are employees that have been at PROS for a long time that aren't easy to work with, or for. Employees that raise concerns are told that that's just the way that person is. Nothing is done.
