    Pros

    Great compensation. Great teamwork. Awesome building

    Cons

    As the company grew and they started hiring these high level people that had come from other companies that they had messed up. They came in and wanted to change a well working machine.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Glad they sold to a company that can take the great products to the next level

    Scam phishing

    I have been working at Radiant Systems

    Pros

    They could take your info and ruin your credit if you are not aware of these sham recruiters..

    Cons

    They are phishing for your info, beware. If a potential employer claims to have "come across" your resume on a job board, why would they ask for your most current resume, and social security info? Scam

    Pros

    Money is reasonably good but not great. Vacation is better than average. Casual work environment.

    Lack of formal, efficient training has contributed to a less than desirable support structure.

    Current Employee - Client Support Technician in Fort Worth, TX

    I have been working at Radiant Systems

    Pros

    Friendly people. Casual, somewhat laid back atmosphere. Opportunities to rise above the average employee. The company is growing, which is a positive in many ways, but not in others.

    Cons

    Growth has not be matched in scale across the various pillars which are the reason for the growth. The morale one of the major support teams is a constant battle to maintain as the demand for output is high. The proverbial positive harvest in terms of dollars and company, financial goals don't appear to match the weight of work load on this support group.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    "Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime." Collaborate with those who wish to actively contribute in a positive, constructive fashion in order to create a solid, effective, efficient means by which to train the support staff.
