    Convoluted leadership and goals

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Houston, TX

    ProsBenefits, office environment. Vacation policy

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

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Company is getting better and better every day

    Vice President (Current Employee) Houston, TX

    ProsReally 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.

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

    Advice to Senior ManagementContinue to build leaders from within.

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

    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.

    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.

    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

    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
