    I worked at Stoneriver

    Pros

    Good employment stability. Work/Life balance is good.

    Cons

    Company management is bad. No growth career wise. Technology is out of date.
    Stay out from this company if you want a growth in your career wise and technology wise.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    GuideWire is implementing the product in almost every state. Where as StoneRiver, Inc is not even reachable.

    I have been working at Stoneriver full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    -benefits (medical, vision, dental, 401k)
    -decent pay with bonuses
    -lots of different shifts and opportunity to work from home

    Cons

    company is taking on millions of dollars in new business but not hiring more people or giving raises of any kind for 3 times the work. this was a great company when I started but this past year it has fallen apart. way too strict on attendence policies, people get sick sometimes! you'd think with all the new business they would show employees some appreciation but instead they got rid of all company parties, they used to even do birthday lunches but not anymore. the call volume is 3 times what it used to be so they "train" you to take other depts calls. yeah, 1 hour of training so you basically get yelled at all day because you have no idea what you're doing and team leads are never available. horrible company now, don't bother applying

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    stop being so cheap! you're employees are not happy and your customers are not happy.

    Pros

    I have had several different work assignments in different divisions of the company, and enjoyed a variety of projects and opportunities to contribute. Management is accessible and seems ready to listen. Like so many companies, you get out of it what you invest into it.

    Cons

    Company has struggled some with the downturn in the economy, but things are definitely strengthened in the last couple of years. Company could invest more in employee training of the products we work on.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Training on company products is something sorely lacking.

    I worked at Stoneriver full-time

    Pros

    I cannot think of any

    Cons

    They are nit picky...they put you down. Management is horrible and have one set of rules for people who have been there a long time versus new employees. They put you down at every turn. I worked at Rolling Meadows but reported to Des Moines and Cedar Rapids. HR will not help you. They will lie. I received an appraisal and was given all meet and exceeds requirements for all items and then was told I did not meet expectations. Where is the logic in that? My manager could not give me an explanation after I asked how that was possible. I was put on probation without being told. I found out months later. I notified HR ..no help. That is their MO.. More back stabbing that I have ever experienced in 40 years of working in this industry. People leave right and left.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your employees with some respect. Get rid of upper management that are being complained about. I can think of one in Des Moines, one in Cedar Rapids, one in S. Carolina and a Project Mgr in Rolling Meadows.

    OK company to work for if you are after a relatively stable job with decent benefits, and not much more

    I worked at Stoneriver full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Pretty good benefits
    Stable work environment
    Still a lot of dedicated people working there although a lot of good people left the company in recent years

    Cons

    A lot of politics for a company that size
    Most engineers stuck working on yesterday's technologies
    Bureaucratic and slow moving for a company that size
    No investment on employees for a long time
    Project managers have no leverage with the project teams (no incentives/no staffing power) nor with the client.
    Different departments/teams often working in silos

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Value and invest on employees
    Take ownership of problems

    Pros

    Learning experience, great people, good environment.

    Cons

    Steady decline the entire 3 years I worked their. Constant reductions. They seem to be following the do more with less strategy and it has affected a lot of people. Support is less than half what it was 2 years ago.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Figure out ways to generate more money rather than laying of year after year. Stop shipping developer jobs to Russia.
