    I worked at Performance Software full-time

    Pros

    It's fun. Lots of interesting projects. Fun company outings. Benefits are good. Year end profit share is real nice. The working environment is "cozy", small company feel.

    Cons

    The culture, what's expected by management, is not clearly expressed.
    Measurable goals and objectives are not laid out.
    The old saying “one ah-???? wipes out all the Ata-boys” is true here.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take the time to "Grow" your employees.
    Change your review process so that it's not so subjective.
    Add some metrics.

    Pros

    Prinicipal/Senior Developers really know their stuff. They are very willing to answer all questions and are really patient with involving you into the project.

    Overall an awesome work environment, casual dress allowed.

    Snacks are in abundance

    Cons

    Pay needs to be a little bit more competitive.

    I have been working at Performance Software

    Pros

    Opportunities to work on many different projects. Free food and drinks.

    Cons

    Demanding hours with no overtime pay. You have to be within a specific group of people to get the recognition and promotions that you deserve. If you are not within that group, very little opportunity for advancement.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Some employees who have a lot of experience working on various projects might be leaving because they are not getting the recognition and promotions. This will affect the company because they will be leaving with a lot of knowledge that the company depends on for certain projects.

    I worked at Performance Software

    Pros

    No doubt the people at PSW our great people and fun to hang out with and party with after work. They do hire smart engineers and are able to produce.

    Cons

    The leadership from team leads through the management chain has limited experience to manage people, manage projects on time, and set a course for sustained growth.
    Projects are late internally but overinflated schedules are easy to meet from the customers perspective so a 96% on-time performance seems good.
    Good luck getting recognized for your achievements.... Yeah, you'll get profit sharing in December but it sure would be nice to just get a thank you every now and then.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Leadership training would go along way for the PLs, TMs, PMs, and on up the chain. The company lacks professionals that know how to manage people.

    Pros

    Small friendly company and you are recoginzed for your achievements.

    Cons

    You end up getting spoiled by the benefits, perks, and the good treatment management gives you. This makes it harder for you to adjust working for another company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue giving your engineers your attention and listening to their issues.
