    Good company to work for.

    Technology Consultant (Former Employee) New York, NY

    ProsGood work/life balance. Opportunity for promotion/recognition if you put in the work. Vacation days above average for the US. Could get more sick days.

    ConsHowever, in terms of actual positions to go up the chain, it is limited unless you count on employee turnover. It is more and more acting like a "big company". Bureaucracy is growing.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGo back to basics. Streamline the bureaucracy.

    Company Is Falling Apart

    Sales Executive (Current Employee) New York, NY

    ProsKnowledgeable people, global presence, name recognition

    ConsOn-going cost and benefits reduction program (going on for 5 years), lack of investment into product development, no collaboration between product groups, impossible to fulfill quotas, new commission plan has lower payouts, high turn-over, just announced up-coming head count reduction because they have not met thier financial projections, management is only focused on thier budget and spreadsheets,

    Advice to Senior ManagementInvest in your products and people. You neglect both

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    SMB Account Executive

    Account Executive (Current Employee) Wayne, PA

    ProsThis is a great place to really own your own territory. All of the tools and resources are provided for your success. As long as you can allocate these resources and pull in Engineers and other AE's when needed, you will be successful.

    Work/Life balance is excellent. As long as you give it 100%, you can leave by 5 PM every day.

    ConsThere are about 3,000 products.
    Very hard to use certain internal systems.
    If you are not technical, you MUST understand business drivers or you will sink fast.

    Advice to Senior ManagementSpend more one on one time with new hires.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    OK place - not totally honest in interviews so beware

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsPeople - very smart and mostly helpful. Lots of modern tools.

    ConsWork life balance is terrible. It's OK - not to be working as long as your phone and laptop are handy. Expectation is that your life if now dedicated to the customer - not just you work day.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDon't burn people out. Spend the money to get enough help.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
