    Pros

    A dynamic and exciting company with a great product. Lots of smart people and good information sharing. Super benefits and lots of paid time off.

    Cons

    Some people in Senior Management are not approachable. I had several instances where I escalated issues to Senior Management through the proper channels, however, they acted like they didn't know who I was and brushed me off. Overall, the culture is a little stiff.

    Advice to Management

    Be more approachable to your field people.

    Pros

    The culture is that of a small company, where opinions are valued and you feel like an important part of an overall picture. Everyone works as a team and gets the job done because of how well the company treats us.

    Cons

    Training could use a little work, as there are not a lot of methods for training developed yet. We are working on changing that as a team.

    Advice to Management

    Thanks for giving us feedback on what's going on with the company, because we are all scared of what the economy is doing to the corporate America and our jobs.

    Pros

    A secure job with average to good Benefits. There are a great many knowledgable people from which to learn and grow professionally. If you like fast paced competitve work this is the place for you. As a developer it would be a good place to start out in your twenties and early thirties, but unless you want and can finagle the oppurtunity to crossover into management the progression ends there. Radiant's products are widely used and there is pride to be taken in their visible succes. There is a healthy sence of commitment, urgency, and accountability that pervades the organization.

    Cons

    There have been many aquisitions of other companies by Radiant and it tends to feel in the years that follow that the companies are still seperate entities. The work environment has a continuing decrease in the ratio of space per person which has no prospects for relief in the immediate future. If you like a quiet environment to concentrate in this will frustrate you. Raises and bonuses are meager at best. There are only 4 grades that people get during reviews: low solid, strong or star. Obivously you don't want to be low. Star is basically impossible. Most people are solid and few nose to the grindstone types get strong. Management by crises is also way too prevalent.

    Advice to Management

    Better financial motivation, Health benefits are starting to wane, More balance towards organic growth rather than growth through aquistions. There needs to be more of a check on sales people from overpromising product enhancements.

    Nepotism and hypocrisy Don't count on merit only for promotions

    Advice to Management

    Communicate honestly with employees and stop the "secrets" that are all over the company. People hear and see that and hate it!

    Pros

    At the Dallas location, the team is lineant. Most of the management is respectful and benefits are ok. You become friends with the staff and they are willing to work with your progression.

    Cons

    The pay is very low compared to the average industry. Certain departments over load you with mandatory work without proper pay. I felt overworked, tired and under paid.

    Advice to Management

    It's better to invest in talent with at least average salaries instead of high overturns because of intesive work and low salaries.
