    Pros

    - Good company culture - Encourage good health choices with on-site gym and programs - Decent pay for area - Great place to learn about corporate culture - Usually plenty of room for advancement

    Cons

    - Salary will not be competitive once you get more experience - High turnover in several IT areas - Does not pay for training/tuition reimbursement - Not flexible to new ideas/change

    Advice to Management

    There were too many issues with leaders not being held accountable for their own work and skills. Instead of leaving an incompetent person in charge to see if they'll learn, placing qualified personnel from the start (and just offering a better wage to attract them) would be more effective.

    Pros

    Stable company, great products constantly enhanced with major research and development commitment, smart leaders, competition is way behind and suffering from internal, structural changes

    Cons

    Focus on profitability means less wins. Different product pricing models can being annoying. Many products have sold well and limited implementation resources can result in a long wait.

    Pros

    very little. It's a job with benefits company car.

    Cons

    I felt misguided from the start. Their customers do not like the company their products are priced out of the market. The CRM and other software products are inferior to competitors and their customers know they have a history of selling bad products for high prices. Good luck.

    Pros

    The employees are fiercely loyal and take pride in their work. They have deep domain knowledge. The company is well structured and well run (very conservative and very traditional). They like to hire entry level people (cheap employment) and move them up the ranks (pay is below average). There are areas in the company and some leaders in the company who are trying to steer to a more modern company and it's showing promise.

    Cons

    There's still a big power struggle between the old guard (Houston) and the people from the original reynolds (Dayton). The company is neither customer nor employee focused and they move slowly. The leadership is stubborn and out of touch.

    Advice to Management

    Be agile and move faster. Open yourself up to modern ways of software development and management. Take better care of your people and don't sacrifice them for profit.
