    Great colleagues - great product - Management, not so much

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsColleagues are very helpful. The product is excellent a lot of fun to work with. Customers are great too.

    ConsInternal training isn't great and you might be send to an job where you aren't qualified for. There is no development, you get hired for a position - but there aren't any ways to move on. A lot of turnover of people.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThink bigger, act bigger - you aren't anymore the small, cosy company you have been.

    Wouldn't recommend

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Irving, TX

    ProsThe people you work with are great, amongst the workers there is a sense of togetherness and willingness to help each other. Very flexible with time. Pay, benefits and vacation/STAT are very good. It is an amazing product and everyone is committed to seeing it become more.

    ConsThe Management team really has a hard time making good sound business decisions in North America, it more of these over arching policies that are not backed by analysis or sound judgement.
    It's sink or swim, but no different than any other solution provider out there. If your not local to Victoria Canada, then don't ever expect to be promoted into Management.

    Advice to Senior ManagementFocus on employees and allow the employees to focus on the customers and products. If you really want to grow the company to greater than 20 Million, learn how to make effective business decisions and allow people to execute those decisions and don't try to manage everything out of 1 office location

    Strong opportunities for career development

    Implementation Consultant (Former Employee) Dublin, Dublin (Ireland)

    ProsIt's a good place to get initial experience out of college, a lot of variety and opportunities to develop your skill set.

    ConsAs with most consultancy positions you can often find yourself "a page ahead" of the client.
    Difficult to get support for professional development (exam fees etc.)

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe heavy investment in marketing over the past few years is possibly at the expense of staff development. There's no point in being seen to be innovative if staff aren't getting

    Great company for young professionals

    Online Marketing Specialist (Current Employee) Sliedrecht (Netherlands)

    ProsThere is a lot of room for creativity, great company with tons of opportunities to grow. I would recommend this company for every young professional with about 5-10 years of experience, who would like to use his/her experience to setup or support company changing projects. There is a lot of freedom, so you can literally transform the company and help it live up to its potential.

    ConsBiggest challenge is the current phase UNIT4 is in right now. There is still a lot of foot-soldier work to be done, before strategic changes can be implemented that will help with a boost in leads / sales.

    Advice to Senior ManagementI think there is room to invest in additional young people, the majority has a great motivation when stimulated by management and compared to new senior employees the cost is relatively low.

    Forget promotion unless you worked for SAP...

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsSome great products, some good employees, huge potential in the marketplace to act ethically and deliver good solutions differently to the competition.

    ConsNew owners and directors have come in from SAP, and employed a complete management team all ex-SAP or with SAP experience. The message to dedicated staff who've built the company up - you're all crap so we're going to appoint from outside, and turn UNIT4 into SAP.

    Bad news for staff, terrible news for customers.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTreat your staff with respect, communicate better, develop a strategy and approach that's unique and not just 'do what SAP did'.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Consultant in the Norwegian market

    Senior Consultant (Former Employee) Oslo (Norway)

    ProsYou are left all alone. It's up to you. ...
    A lot of nice people are working there. Many good colleges. The culture used to be great.

    ConsYou are left all alone.
    Lack of professional management.
    The head of the department is "missing".
    Hopeless or no support at all from your leader.
    Salary below average. No justice.

    Advice to Senior ManagementChange some of the leaders. It's over due.

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

    Great work place

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsGreat culture, people and product! Flexible work schedule, autonomy and challenging tasks.
    Global company.

    ConsSeveral locations, a need for better systems for communication. Lack of coordination between units.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMake sure that strategy is communicated across the company. Focus on Leadership and employee empowerment. Build further on the great products that we have today.
