    I worked at Sunbelt Software full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    We made great products and had fun doing it. I worked there for years before the buyout and really enjoyed the place.

    Cons

    Not much room to grow. It was kind of built around who you know. After the sale to GFI the whole feel of the place went sour and a lot of good people left.


  2. Okay before the sale of the company

    Pros

    People were very nice and easy to get along with. I enjoyed working there for the most part, but that was before GFI bought the company.

    Cons

    Many IT employees were very clicky and many unwilling to share and protecting their domains. Not the best place for sharing and learning. There was a strange click going on with Scientology where many execs were part of the church. After GFI bought the company everything changed, the owner of the company left to start his own training company across the street (strange).

    Advice to Management

    I cannot comment on the changes after the regime change. But it seemed a little odd that the top 3 guys that took over the company had other companies all run through Malta and CFO had setup all the tax shelters for their many enterprises, I am for avoidance, but it just seemed a little shady.


  3. One of the great software companies

    Pros

    Great products, very caring management team, decent pay, and a GREAT culture. Management very caring. Clear goals and objectives.

    Cons

    Always undercapitalized... Some parts of the company are silo'd, but that's improving.

    Advice to Management

    Raise capital and bring in more professional management.

    Pros

    Good culture and overall environment of the company. Good opportunities within the company to grow and advance. Company tries to take care of their employees and are open to new ideas.

    Cons

    The pay was a little bit on the light side. It is a good company to cut your teeth at but may need to leave and come back in order to stay competitive in pay scales.

    Pros

    the best reasons to work for Sunbelt Software include diversity of work and long term company potential as we turn away from the distribution model and become a free standing product development company. The heart of the company is the engineering organization and this has some good managers who seem intent on building a modern software engineering company.

    Cons

    immature organization, only a few outstanding people. Many of the key managers are not high quality leaders, and senior leadership does not have a coherent unified strategy for moving the company forward. There's too much compartmentalization and lack of transparency in management.

    Advice to Management

    we're not a distribution company anymore
