    Solid product from a company lacking structure.

    I have been working at Tradestone Software full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    - Solid pay scale
    - Decent product

    Cons

    - No meaningful training or on-boarding program to speak of. Sink or swim with a 5 year old admin guide.
    - Project directors are workaholics and expect team members to work 60-80 hour weeks regardless of your travel schedule or personal life.
    - Implementation methodology is solid in strategy but is outdated in effectiveness.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - No org chart to know who does what.
    - No corporate strategy or common message, feels like a fractured consulting company, not a software organization.
    - Leadership is silent, projects shouldn't feel as silo'd as they do.

    Pros

    Coworkers and peers are great to work with if you know who they are. The product has potential.

    Cons

    Lack of investment in people. Lack of leadership. Informal.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more professional, figure out what motivates the intelligent workers to keep them. Communicate with those that are on client sites to understand needs of those that work for you and your clients.

    Pros

    Relatively small company...so everyone knows everyone. No bureaucracy! Very warm and friendly work culture!

    Cons

    If you are looking for a huge corporation with hundreds of people in the office, this is probably not the best place for you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need a few more employee incentives/benefits

    Pros

    Exposure to different retail companies, get to know how they operate. Learn different working cultures and how things are done differently in different countries.

    Cons

    Short time exposure. Traveling can be a pain after sometime for few?

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Proper organization chart needs to be maintained to give everyone an equal opportunity.

    Pros

    Tradestone is a company that is relaxed, yet very professional and extremely productive. This is a company that with an environment that promotes openness, flexibility and a sense of teamwork. Everyone is always willing to pitch in and help to get the job done. I haven't seen a company where everyone seems to really enjoy their job and the company in a very long time.

    Cons

    At this moment I do not have a downside to report

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work of promoting openness without fear of saying the wrong thing. Also continue to be open about company progress.

    Pros

    During my time here at TradeStone I have yet to meet a single person that isn't a team player and more than willing to lend a hand to a fellow employee if need be. The opportunity to learn and grow within the company is bar none. The culture is great and from day one you feel like part of the team. Without a doubt I can say that I genuinely enjoy coming to work everyday.

    Cons

    At this time I do not have any Cons about TradeStone as a company nor my employment here.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work!

    Pros

    The company is going through tremendous growth right now. They give me the opportunity to really take on meaningful and impactful responsibilities. I have the opportunity to grow and develop vertically as well as horizontally. They have a great business reputation in the industry and I enjoy to continuing to help them grow. One of the best parts is the access you have to management. They're open and you can ask them anything. They have a cohesive vision for the firm and they are great mentors

    Cons

    Mid size company means all hands on deck - we work hard

    I worked at Tradestone Software full-time

    Pros

    My colleagues were good to work with, had a decent amount of vacation days and holidays, great health insurance with their PPO plan

    Cons

    Disliked how the sales team would overpromise to get a sale and the projects were always overbudget and underestimated in terms of time it required to complete, had to work long hours to accommodate the lies the sales team told to the clients (even promising functionality that doesn't exist), horrible work life balance. They only cared about the bottom line, even if it meant their people suffered.

    I worked at Tradestone Software full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Great benefits and salary package, highly talented pool of talent and friendly colleagues.

    Cons

    Complete lack of training program for new and old employees, lack of management leading by example and little to no responsibility is given to employees - those higher up are unable to relinquish control of the reins in order for employees to work to their full potential.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Delegate and allow employees to shine.

    I worked at Tradestone Software

    Pros

    Product had potential. Many of the people were really nice. Still small and dynamic.

    Cons

    Extremely political. Inner and outer circles of influence constantly changing. CEO is monarch like and enjoys the power.
