    Pros

    compensation (both cash and equity), healthy company, incredible investors (seriously- check out who the investors are...), culture of change and improvement and rapid growth. Innovative products in a stable and yet mission-critical industry (time and expense tracking, et al).

    Cons

    Per some of the other reviews below, this is not a place for you if you are uncomfortable with rapid change and growth, as they are inevitable when one is a technology company quickly growing and rapidly evolving. If you don't embrace change, occasional confusion, and intensity, then this company, and the cloud side of the technology business, are probably not for you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep it up. Stomp hard on the gas pedal. "Fail Fast Forward". Just keep doing what you are doing!

    Pros

    Company is growing rapidly, your hard work doesn't go unnoticed. Promotions are happily given to hard working employees. Start up-like feel, with the back bone of an established company. People are usually in great moods here, others tend to stay out of the way and keep to themselves. Benefits are great, especially healthcare.

    Cons

    May seem a little unorganized as the company instills policies and procedures.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communicate weekly announcements to your teams. Its crucial to have everyone on the same page, doing what they need to be doing, in order for a company to successfully grow. Everyone should be in sync.

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

    Pros

    It started out like a good first date - with promise. The promise of more leads that they could handle, leaders in their space a great partner channel - etc.

    Some pro's: You can have a free lunch catered everyday and an endless supply of snacks - if that's your thing, two thumbs up!

    Cons

    The reality was/is: huge turnover in management - both senior and mid-level, huge turnover in development - this is especially disconcerting since they've launched a new platform and key project managers, developers, etc have left. Every week there are new "good bye" emails.

    The entire sales team struggles - with the exception of SMB team. Good luck if you want to sell at the mid market or Enterprise level.

    The product is little more than vapor/shelf ware - I hate to say it; but, it's reality. For a SaaS company, not so nimble.

    Senior, executive management trys; but, little more than throwing opportunities against the wall with the promise of "get the deal and we'll figure it out".

    The lack of a reliable funnel is troubling.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I don't even know where to start...

    Pros

    From what I have perceived, there is room for upward growth The benefits are fantastic (you couldn't ask for better insurance coverage), lunch is provided daily, and there is a strong corporate culture within the company! I really like the type of work that I am involved in because I can see the overall impact my work has on the company. That's a big deal to me and something that I found lacking prior to joining Replicon.

    Cons

    If you are someone to needs or works best under a micro-management type of setting, then I would be hesitant to recommend working here because that is not the type of management style found within the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    As the company continues to grow, make sure to continue keeping everyone in the loop. Management does a pretty good job of doing that now, but as the organization continues to grow, I think this will naturally become more difficult to do.

    Cons

    We are growing quickly, developing and delivering products quickly so we need working on improving communication across the board.

    I have been working at Replicon full-time

    Pros

    I'm surprised to see the negative reviews on here. Those must have come from non-performers, as Replicon doesn't tolerate non-performers very well. We have a lot of great talent on the team and they are fun to work with.

    The products are solid, strong customer base and the market potential is huge. The company expects employees to take ownership of what they do. There are not a ton of policies and procedures (which tend to slow things down), rather, what we have is more like guideline... and you are expected to make the right decisions based on the guideline. So you are empowered to do your job well.

    Cons

    If you are not a strong performer, you won't enjoy it here as the pace is fast and it will be very clear to everyone that you are falling behind...

    Pros

    Everyone is professional and friendly, there isn't any work politics. The workload can be quite busy through the different departments, so it creates more materials you can learn and work on. Catered lunch everyday

    Cons

    Communication barriers between the different cultures

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More training on communicating with teams from India and making sure IT can solve issues efficiently without having to wait for helpdesk. Smooth out some admin process to help process run more smoothly

    Pros

    Intuitive product with great market traction. Lots of opportunity to tackle big challenges that have potential for big impact. Get to use latest and greatest approaches/processes/products to solve problems. Management vision is clear and realistic.

    Cons

    Sometimes hard to push through legacy processes to implement best practices. Management maintains tight control (good and bad).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider accepting higher risk in trying new approaches. Give employees more power to make needed changes to legacy processes.

    Pros

    Company is very particular about their employees. They only keep the best so you dont have to work with people who arent doing a good job. The CEOs are fairly involved and require their people to execute to their vision and be decisive. Some offices offer free lunches and some of the offices are new. There's lots of growth and the future looks bright. Company has invested in lots of tools available to enable staff.

    Cons

    Compensation isn't the best but it's ok. Lots of change happening as the company grows which comes with some pain in product development and pressure on all departments. Its a high pressure environment right now.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The new products need time to catch up so sales and marketing can be as successful as needed. Be realistic in goal setting and keep your high standards for people.
