    An easy, dead-end job

    I have been working at PROS full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    PROS has a pretty relaxed work environment (within the development organization) with long periods of little work.
    The benefits aren't bad (okay pay, flexible hours).
    It is a very easy place to simply show up and not make waves.

    Cons

    There are no interesting problems to work on, not that I've ever seen. The only "work" is patching up problems induced by poor processes which in turn adds to the already significant technical debt.
    There is no long term vision for the company, which means no career development.
    Things like the tuition reimbursement program are a sham, but good for selling new hires on the company.
    It is very easy to be pigeonholed into whatever role you were hired into. Lots of folks have been doing the exact same job for years on end, which becomes the expectation for new employees.
    Training is nonexistent, which would be a problem if you ever needed to know something about the products offered.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I'd recommend training your workforce and establishing a long term vision for the company (and then sharing it with your employees).
    Stop contracting out development and QE. Invest in your employees - it will probably cost more in the short-term but the hole only gets deeper the longer you keep digging.

    I have been working at PROS full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Hard to say, some nice people, overall challenging work

    Cons

    Too many leaders, they have gotten over-loaded with Vice Presidents.....not enough people doing the work. No work/life balance, pay not competitive, many senior managers operate in silos and not qualified to be leaders.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Free snacks don't overcome fundamental flaws in leadership. Focus on your people and not on your bottom line. Add resources where it counts, not more presidents, more people in the trenches.

    I have been working at PROS full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Decent pay. Enjoy the people I work with. Can work from home.

    Cons

    Work life balance is tough. Zero concern for employee development. Management plays favorites. Never say no to a customer, so the entry level employees have to deliver way to much while management looks good for keeping customer.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start being concerned with bottom line, not top. Stop reporting Non GAAP earnings when we lose money. Stop acting like we are peers with Deloitte/Accenture/IBM and stop acting like we are a "big data company" We use MS SQL Server....

    I have been working at PROS full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    work life balance is good
    company sponsored party is fine
    My manager is awesome. This is top bottom so its a great trend set by the CEO

    Cons

    compensation isn't even on par with Houston standards
    no clear career path for QE.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better standards for career path and better compensation will get you better people.Clean up people who don't add value anymore instead of retaining them to work from home. I see not so great employees retaining their jobs in this division. This will mean you are underpaying creative prospects and colleagues.

    I worked at PROS full-time

    Pros

    Benefits, office environment. Vacation policy

    Cons

    They stress work/life balance. However, it's all just rhetoric.
    Job readiness training is virtually nonexistent- if you don't know it going in, you'll have to figure it out yourself and quickly. Leadership/management direction and goals are confusing and change literally day by day. Much of what has been planned and developed long-term is changed causing panic, and undue pressure for all. Major platforms fail to reach fruition as planned.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop watching the ticker tape each day and spend time with the heart of the company........your people.

    Pros

    Really turning into a great company. Culture is getting more healthy and constructive. Success is building on success. It is a great place to be proactive and make good things happen. Lots of potential for this company in a growing market.

    Cons

    You must be a self starter. This is not a good company for people looking to be told what to do.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to build leaders from within.
