    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.

    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.

    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.

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

    Lots 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 ManagementAdvice

    Consider reorganizing based on Meritocracy, and define clearly the career paths.

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Not 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.

    Innovative, Super Smart Company Poised for Success

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Houston, TX
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Houston, TX

    I have been working at PROS full-time

    Pros

    The 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.

    Cons

    Some 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 ManagementAdvice

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

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

    Pros

    Fantastic 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.

    Cons

    Smaller 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.
