    I worked at StarCite full-time

    Pros

    Career opportunity and earning potential are very good. Ability to collaborate with peers feeding off other great ideas makes this an enjoyable company to work for.

    Cons

    You will work long hours, but there is potential for bonus and rewards. If you are accustomed to an organization that has a lot of red tape to get through for a decision, you should be ok.

    Management is shady and the software is a pain.

    Pros

    You have the ability to work remotely if approved by department manager.

    Cons

    It is very difficult to express area's of improvement and dissatisfaction in regards to department procedures to management. I constantly feel that my opinion does not matter and the "open door" policy is not encouraged. Inconsistency with protocols and undefined SOP's. I feel a lack of overall attentiveness to potential clients if that client is not part of fortune 500. Technology of the product needs serious improvement. Overall indolent ethics applied to employees as well as customers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bring back the same management style and employee awareness the company once had before 2009.

    Push the system functionality to the next level and fully integrate systems

    Former Employee - Director Engineering

    I worked at StarCite

    Pros

    The salary levels are based on market. There is a sense of community amongst the employees. The technology has a lot of room for improvement.

    Cons

    I think the job gets quite monotonous. Input from employees does not easily flow to upper management. The space does not have too much growth potential.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve processes. Make the employes feel empowered and respected. Software development is not about numbers but more about motivating the right set of team members in smaller groups.
