    Pros

    want to solve business problems for customers and partners and do it as a team, management in our subsidiary stands by employees, offices are well thought out to maximize team work and creative culture

    Cons

    dealing with parent company in Sweden has some challenges due to time zones and cultures but the global experience is overall positive for us and our customers .... we have a few people who gossip but most employees think they are not worthy of listening too

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    continue to lead by example.... by working hard and showing respect to employees... I have seen this demonstrated here better than any place I have worked ..

    Pros

    None! There is nothing positive to say about this company. Well, I guess the salary they paid was okay. They also Christmas presents to your children which is nice.

    Cons

    People, Management, Product is Poor.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Figure it out yourselves!

    ReadSoft is a wonderful company to work for...they truly care about their employees and understand that people are the company's most important asset. We enjoy a dynamic corporate culture and exceptional benefits. I cannot speak highly enough of my experience here.

    I have nothing to share in this category as I feel that ReadSoft does a great job of keeping employees happy and understands the importance of work-life balance.

    Pros

    Great place to learn SAP and Accounts Payable
    Good place to build a long term career
    Overall a great place to work, one of the better companies I have worked for

    Cons

    Fairness in salary is depends on person to person.
    Professional services SAP side lacks promotional abilities

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Your high performing employees are capable of doing more than just their jobs. Promote them to higher levels. It is okay to skip some levels, things do not always have to be step by step. Promotions on the CS SAP side are as not easy to come by.as the rest of RS. Especially compared to the administrative side where promotions are a dime a dozen.

    This causes the administrative side to believe that CS is just as fast. This is not a major issue, it could be and is worse in other companies. RS is lucky to have great employees that give it constant expansion.

    Pros

    One of the best solutions in the segment.
    Multi-national Company with opportunities around the globe.
    Recently sold to Lexmark. The spectations are good for next year.

    Cons

    No HR department, low salary, bad benefits.
    The Latam Management is "poor".
    No investments in Professional Services, causing problems to deliver the solutions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bad Management in Latam area.
    HR need to act for subs.
    For sure the 4 C's is just a theory.

    I have been working at ReadSoft full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    ReadSoft is a good company at it's core. In any of the subs there's a great group of people all working hard to try to make things work and follow the company direction. The biggest asset in ReadSoft is its people. The products and solutions are pretty much the same as its competitors.

    Cons

    On the bad side, head office in Sweden is a nightmare to deal with. Conflicted groups of management who are trying to leapfrog each other. HQ departments that do just what they need to even when that doens't help the overall picture and a total structure that allows for local subs to do what they please even when that's outside of the HQ goals, seemingly without consequence.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make a single goal, one clear strategy and stop the in fighting. Make sure HQ departments all work together and that all the subs behave themselves. Be more aggressive and take more risks in the marketplace, ReadSoft is too safe.
