    Pros

    Benefits are still good and those below middle management are great. The new headquarters is a great building with a lot of hi tech bells and whistles

    Cons

    No longer the start up culture. Assimilation by Lexmark increases everyday, taking the culture that perceptive was known for away piece by piece.

    Little to no opportunities for advancement
    Compensation is well below what is warranted

    Advice to Management

    Middle management needs to be cleaned out and you need to work hard everyday to retain as much as you can of what used to make this a great place to work.

    Pros

    Great work/life balance. Plenty of opportunity for those who excel. Great co-workers and interesting work. Very flexible vacation policy. Allowed lots of independence in daily work.

    Cons

    Sometime wasteful culture, we spend where we shouldn't and don't spend when we should. Not enough adoption of externally created technologies, a.k.a. not invented here syndrome.

    Advice to Management

    Don't always look to lead the industry where you want it to go. Sometimes it is more fruitful to see where the industry wants to go and help them get there.

    Pros

    Flexible time off and work from home schedule. Overall, the company really strives for work-life balance while keeping a fun and relaxing environment.

    Cons

    Presently, the company is undergoing some changes at the top and bottom in terms of strategy and direction. I think this will be a successful player in 12 - 15 months, as the strategy comes together. However, working in a company that is transitioning from start-up to power player is challenging.

    Advice to Management

    Find a way to differentiate the contributions.

    commute is long and salary is not as high as it should be for the area.

    A bright star slowly falling from the sky, what once was great is on it's way to destruction.

    Pros

    Culture, food, 401k, dress code, vacation policy. Great place to start as an entry level employee. Just don't stay long.

    Cons

    Immature organization. Too prideful of this culture... It's fun and all, but also not the point of operating a company. Keggers and caffeine makes smart employees happy enough only to temporarily cover the contempt of how sad middle management and lack of experience is. And you better be a native English speaker from a Big 12 school... Else you will be shunned from the majority of the e employees in Shawnee.

    Advice to Management

    Make some of the tough decisions already. You sold the company and expect to compete in the Fortune 500 and international spaces but still want to operate like a small business that caters to Mom and Pop businesses with boiler plate solutions. The "hey I am a 25 year old wiz" thing, armed with bad templates, is not what it takes to cut it long term. The empty promises made to your larger customers may soon be the only "image" this company has. Cookie cutter simply will get you in far enough to fail. Hire some people with experience help transform the way you are doing business and grow., or at least TRY to do something different. Something beyond a tentative 3 month roadmap could help. Otherwise, all I see is a sinking ship with a pile of old ink cartridge money in the cabin, being driven by someone with no map or idea what it's like to navigate these types of waters. Hey, at least some really smart decent people got rich.

    Perceptive's technology is artfully designed and works across platforms. It is easily integrated with other systems.

    Pros

    Great teamwork and internal support. The technical support teams are fantastic and very easy to coordinate. The people go above and beyond for each other.

    Cons

    If you can't follow the right college sports team you might as well forget talking to anyone in the office. And, not everyone wants to play dodgeball.

    Advice to Management

    Open up to new thoughts.

    Pros

    Great growth potential for entry level employees, true open door management, comfortable work environment

    Cons

    Salary is lagging behind regional standard, too many products currently offered causes confusion and obstruction, poor communication between company divisions

    Advice to Management

    Figure out what we need to sell, jettison the rest, and allow other departments to push back on sales about questionable statements of work
