    Pros

    A great culture and a company that's growing in size and revenues. It's an exciting place to work, with plenty of room to grow, or blaze a new trail for yourself. You're surrounded by very smart (and very nice) people. Senior leadership is well-respected and has earned it.

    Cons

    With growth comes growing pains. Some infrastructure teams (IT, Finance, Procurement, Legal) are feeling pressure from the growing pains, made a bit more complicated by some resistance to change. But everyone is motivated by nothing but the best of intentions.

    Advice to Management

    Your efforts to meaningfully engage with employees are well appreciated. Keep it going!

    Pros

    What we do is really cool. Customer testimonials about their significant ROI, margin improvement are unlike anything I have ever seen in my career. Good move by senior management to shift to SaaS. will help company grow faster and accelerate customer adoption. Really good espri de corp across the departments, everyone focused on customer success and growing sales.

    Cons

    When you work for a $200m company with aspirations to mainstream and dominate a category its hard work but also loads of career upside for those who perform. if you don't want to work hard, check the openings at the post office

    Advice to Management

    lots of progress with company events, communications, benefits, etc. keep it up. if you really want to be the best place to work, don't stop making progress in all those areas.

    Pros

    PROS is a great place to work if you are fresh out of college and looking to jump start your career. The managers I have worked for have always been very open to provide feedback on a whim and also answer questions regarding a wide range of topics that may not necessarily fall directly under their area of expertise. Colleagues are very friendly. Work environment is very open and work timings are flexible with the option to work from home when needed. It is also a great place to learn how to work with customers and deal with the constant barrage of requests that come in from customers looking for specific features in the products they purchase from PROS.

    Cons

    Job roles can be better defined. Sometimes getting a promotion isn't always easy and people have been known to either switch departments or leave the company altogether after a couple of years. A clear sense of direction may be lacking sometimes in terms of where a project is going, how it needs to be implemented and what the project roadmap is for the future. Pay definitely needs to improve otherwise the really smart employees will definitely be lost.

    Advice to Management

    Provide a little more clarity on the vision for the company. The Kick Off meetings at the beginning of the year are great however I would like to see more clarity provided on all the facets of the company. The previous Kick Off Meeting focused way too heavily on the Pricing side of the business and not enough attention was paid to promote the Travel side internally.

    Pros

    Not many pros. Decent pay. Stable company.

    Cons

    Bad leadership. No Accountability for anyone. Bad designed products. No process. No vision.

    Advice to Management

    Make your people be accountable. Focus on the improving the culture of poor quality products into high value useful products. Remove the Pros cliques that have been their for 10 plus years and don't provide any value other than getting in the way of progress.

    Pros

    Good customer base excited to use and improve product Company is small enough so that passionate developers can easily make a big difference Very smart, engaged community of co-workers willing to help and encourage growth Good work-life balance, working from home is encouraged

    Cons

    Frequent management changes Somewhat of a schism between remote and local employees

    Advice to Management

    Unify vision across the branches of the company; Sales, Product, Professional Services, etc. often have very different conceptions of PROS' priorities and goals. Stabilize middle-upper management and make it clear what our focus and direction are.

    Pros

    Some very smart people that are humble and willing to mentor. Engineering has a core of people that knows the product very well. All hands on deck during release makes a good effort for release.

    Cons

    Can't keep GOOD talent. Management thinks this is normal or cyclical, it's not... Senior engineers and people who have been here 5+ years are leaving... Outdated technology, underpaid, and overstressed environment. On top of that, the company is losing a ton of money (check out the quarterly reports). Going to love the response from HR on this. They're going to say we get health fairs and other perks to make up for... If you think I'm being cynical, just read the other reviews.

    Advice to Management

    Try to do whatever it takes to keep good talent. Whatever your doing isn't "enough". Deliver if you promise. We haven't been a true software company in years, but a sales/marketing company. Focus on product, and innovation. Employees are literally rattled by the losses (financially and employees), so speak about the elephant in the room.
