    My Experience At Primavera

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Bala Cynwyd, PA

    ProsComraderie - good people working together to accomplish goals
    Opportunity - if you showed you were willing to work hard and share good ideas, you earned more responsibility
    Customer Focus - Primavera often went out of its way / above and beyond to satisfy its customers
    Resources - Primavera provides access to all the info you need to do your job

    ConsLocation - HQ located outside of city (Philadelphia); tough commute & hard to reach via public transportation
    Management Style - not as progressive as some tech companies; some micro-management; hesitant / resistant to implement fairly new concepts, such as work from home & flexible scheduling

    Advice to Senior ManagementYou have good people. Trust them and watch productivity soar.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Great Opportunity

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Bala Cynwyd, PA

    ProsExposure to software industry, relaxed/low stress environment, many sales tools/resources.

    ConsQuite a few folks who had worked there for 20+ years who wouldn't let you "in." Zero repercussions for lateness/missed work/wasting time - which affected morale.

    Advice to Senior ManagementProvide opportunity for newer employees to interface more with veterans. Offer mentorship program or something similar in order to promote teambuilding.

    Thank God Oracle saved Primavera Systems

    Business Analyst (Former Employee)

    ProsCollegial atmosphere, employees grow up in the firm and seem to love to work there. Employees are passionate about the software and take ownership and pride in their work.

    ConsMany employees "grew up" in the firm and only know one way to do things. Employees can be very territorial when it comes to sharing information / knowledge.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGood move selling out to Oracle. Most of the management team were over matched. Try to learn as much as you can from Oracle.

    A decent place to work but not very satisfying if you want to do a lot creative wok.

    Programmer (Current Employee) Bala Cynwyd, PA

    ProsThey are willing to use and pursue new and advanced technologies. They emphasize on the culture of learning, and have study groups for leading technologies. The project management software is used by big companies in various industries, so the sale is stable.

    ConsMost people are working on existing software products. Have to do a lot of maintenance work. It is not easy to transfer inside the company from one group to another right now. They used to transfer inside on a regular base. So it's not good if you want to try different things.

    Advice to Senior ManagementProvide more opportunity to transfer inside the company.

    Review for Primavera Systems

    Senior Software Engineer (Current Employee) Bala Cynwyd, PA

    ProsThe development organization has good work environment with a good balance with regards to work life. The people are friendly and I have found internal politics to be limited. It is a good engineering department and lets engineers do their work without constant interference from middle management. People are fun to work with.

    ConsLack of career growth opportunities is the single most important downside. However this might be the case with most small companies and I am not the best judge.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBetter outline career opportunities and growth potential for individuals.
