    Current Employee - Business Development  in  Auckland (New Zealand)
    Current Employee - Business Development in Auckland (New Zealand)

    I have been working at TechnologyOne full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Tech One has a great ERP solution that works well in certain verticals e.g. central, state, federal and local government. Outside of that NFP and services are also a pretty good fit. It has some brilliant dev people and Adrian has a lot of vision. They pay well for good results from a Business Development perspective. If you work for a great Manager - well you are lucky and life will be quite fun.

    Cons

    Adrian also operates as a tyrant and a lot of senior managers are scared of him. Too many people work close to burnout. Proper training is limited as are really well skilled Consultants.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Engage more with employees. Don't just dictate listen. Do more survey. Act on them.

    I worked at TechnologyOne full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great office location, all day sweets in kitchen, great people

    Cons

    Top down, knee-jerk senior management reacting in hindsight
    Autocratic CEO surrounded by yes-men who pass the blame downwards
    Apart from Finance module which is good, the other modules drag down the customer experience
    High amount of travel for Consultants who could be moving between 5 -10 projects at any point and slight regard for burnout
    Ludicrous billable % expectation and high amount of admin drags down work-life-balance
    High staff turnover amongst consultants particular due to new operating procedures and polices implemented in 2013/14

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stand up and be accountable
    Sales keep the company going but satisfied customers keep their licenses try extending implementation times

    Good Company run by inefficient Managers

    Former Employee - Business Consultant  in  Sydney (Australia)

    I worked at TechnologyOne full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Good products and smart people.

    Cons

    List of them. Here it goes
    - Major issue: Inefficient Managers
    - No training provided (EVER)
    - You will have to train yourself with a amateur training material that's provided to you
    - You can blamed for someone else's mistake if your manager doesn't like you
    - There is a buddy system which is an absolute useless process
    - Not much interaction within the management and employees
    - Practice leads think, they have all the right to push around their reportees
    - No bonus structure but they want everyone to sell
    - Management continuously keeps looking for excuses to avoid a pay rise
    - Biased managers
    - Never take ideas for innovation and hence being overtaken by other Solution providers
    - Inefficient Project Managers with no knowledge of Project Management
    This list can go on and on, for the company really needs to really work on its own performance planning before claiming that they can provide the best in class to its clients.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Look after your employees to get the best out of them.
    - Do not be biased and make room for innovation to build a better market share
    - Share the rewards with your employees

    I worked at TechnologyOne full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great people, nice atmosphere, good home grown company with nice offices.

    Cons

    Average product but meets the needs of smaller businesses. Management decisions from HQ are questionable at times and not well thought out.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you're based in other cities other than Brisbane there's not much opportunity for career progression - management in Brisbane need to be aware of this as they are missing opportunities to move good people upwards within the organisation - in this day and age of technology, location should not be an issue.

    I worked at TechnologyOne full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - Knowledgable staff
    - Nice headquarters
    - All day breakfast
    - People are committed to making a difference
    - Good list of clients

    Cons

    - Despotic CEO who must approve absolutely everything and rarely takes advice from those around him. Biggest bottleneck to progress in the company. Also works part time!
    - Senior managers spend their time pacifying the CEO, rather than doing what they know needs to be done.
    - Do not believe the quoted low figure for staff turnover. It is much higher; constant churn among developers and sales and marketing.
    - No real commitment to training (unless it's on their own products) or career development.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    This company needs a professional CEO. Current CEO did well to take it from startup to where it is now, but it's time to hand over.

    I worked at TechnologyOne full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Pay is OK if you make sure to push for regular raises, nice office, flexible work schedule, some interesting work if you're on the right project,

    Cons

    Old-school management, a lot of IT dinosaurs that don't keep up with the latest trends, poor testing and QA methodologies, lack of thorough code reviews, management has a tendency to be reactive rather than proactive, easy to get stuck on the same boring project for a long time, poor execution of company vision

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I worked at TechnologyOne full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great people. Dedicated, friendly, team oriented and collaborative
    Good products. Customers like them and good functionality.
    Modern offices with generally relaxed culture

    Cons

    Autocratic leadership where many managers end up just having to agree to survive
    Lack of innovation in products despite stated intentions. Feel the company is being overtaken by competitors especially SaaS providers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Empower your greatest assets- the staff
    Reward innovation and creativity

    I have been working at TechnologyOne full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The people are the best bit. Most people I've met here are really smart, I love that they're all technology-focused (unlike my last job in mining where they were all happy using IE6) and there is a real buzz in the air.

    Cons

    There are processes that get in the way of change, and people who are opposed to it, but I suppose innovation is never an easy road, is it!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Removing roadblocks to change would make life simpler.
