    Pros

    This is a mature and stable company with a great team in place, a very strong product that sells well, and a large customer base. SaaS and on-premises delivery options provide great value for various types of customers. The revamped user experience / user interface of the product is pulling in many new customers and making many current ones very happy.

    Cons

    Sometimes a bit unstructured - sort of a start-up feel. A con for some, but a pro for many.

    Pros

    Friendly culture with good collaboration between most of the employees.

    Cons

    Politics between Executives and across some departments is unpleasant and forces one to be overly guarded about stepping on the wrong person's toes. Some Executives are particularly nasty to each other and to their underlings.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Midlevel execs and employees might perform better if the COO does not cut the heads off his messengers. Quelch the rivalries between department execs.

    Pros

    It's a job if you just want to collect a paycheck

    Cons

    The employees walk around like zombies. No one cares about anyone. There's lots of back stabbing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Seriously observe the employees you put in charge. Some are very dishonest and deceitful.

    Pros

    Some very talented and motivated people on staff. Great development leadership, willing to try new things... sometimes. Overall, the company is a positive place to work- just don't expect to change the world there.

    Cons

    Old code, resistance to change, makes for a product that is often uninspired and uninspiring. The product is notoriously difficult to use, disjointed and slow. Unfortunately when I was there, there was little motivation to make the kind of sweeping architectural changes that would be necessary to bring about dramatic improvements.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    find ways to take chances and grow the product to keep it relevant

    Pros

    Customer-driven organization with excellent thought and execution leadership. Focus on pushing the industry to deliver greater business value through innovative and user friedly Portfolio Management solutions.

    Cons

    As much of a pro as a con, depending on what you are seeking in an employer, Planview is a privately held corporation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the great work and building on a tradition and culture of delivering excellence in all that Planview delivers! Controlled and focused, but aggressive growth plans should remain a constant.

    Pros

    Pay well, lots of advancement, reasonable benefits.

    Cons

    Sometimes difficult to understand some of the spending decisions. Lots of money for this trivial thing, none for this key piece of gear.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in the basics.

    Pros

    It's a comfortable place to work.
    Most of the people are nice.
    Management are nice folks all in all.
    It is the sort of place I would work at again.l

    Cons

    The code base is a mess.
    Not enough folks.
    They sell the product for too little money and then have to wast inordinate amount of time doing support. Many forks and spin offs of product.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get the codebase under control. The company has long known the need for rearchitecting the product.
