    Pros

    If you are productive in your position, you will be well rewarded financially and with the opportunity for advancement and greater responsibility. The company provides a tremendous outlet for creative thinking and solutions. The technology is widely recognized as industry leading, not just in the United States, but globally. The teams you work with daily are very supportive and will roll up their sleeves to reach a solution. The core values are strong and are being enhanced continuously. If you enjoy a challenge, like personal success that translates positively for the company and are willing to work for your rewards, Unify is for you.

    Cons

    If you are a mediocre performer or looking to blame someone, this is not the place for you. The market and technology landscapes have been altered tremendously during the past 10 years. They will continue to evolve during the coming years. The ability to adapt, learn new ways to work, open yourself to new ideas and technology are crucial to success, now and in the future.

    Advice to Management

    Continue the push towards accountability and results driven performance by all employees. Keep the positive momentum within the organization growing. Keep the creative environment currently enjoyed by employees and encourage further new way to work thinking by them.

    Pros

    Good people to work with, occasionally interesting work. Products are not exactly cutting edge, but not obsolete off the shelf like some places.

    Cons

    Extremely poorly managed, never once in 16 years hit even a quarterly target. Always technically excellent, yet single digit market penetration.

    Advice to Management

    Just give the product away and try to make money on the service. Perhaps consider making decisions that let layoffs work for you instead of against you (50% off the top? Seriously?)

    Pros

    Flexible Hours and work from home.

    Cons

    One of the worst company to work for. Started Career with IBM than to Siemens than to 50/50 Siemens/Gores and the rest fell downhill fast. The leaders have no idea. Promotions happen to good old boy network. Folks who have no leadership and cant even talk technology. The Product team is a joke. They have leaders in the product team that have no business leading Product Development. No vision for XaaS or Cloud based Offerrings. Folks become VP's and Sr VP after selling one deal.. A joke.. SHUT THE COMPANY DOWN!!

    Advice to Management

    Move on out and either sell the company or hire new people. No vision. You already have bled the company enough with your fat salaries.

    Pros

    The engineers are great. They try to do their best and are willing to work as a team. They do the best they can with what they have.

    Cons

    Management seem detached. They keep trying new things to help them like the employee review process. The problem is they have little knowledge of the products or what makes them work. This has become more pronounced with the latest leadership. Always the threat of job cuts.

    Advice to Management

    Get back to basics!!! When you have a meeting with staff and are asked a question, try to answer it.

    Pros

    Large product portfolio, worldwide-recognized design with legacy customer base in Enterprise market. Top notch innovation and development engineers.

    Cons

    Company is owned by investment firm (Gores Group) that always wants to make double digit profit.
    As a result, there is no pension or 401K plans offered to employees.

    Pros

    They leave you alone to do your job, probably because nobody in upper management really knows anything technical.

    Cons

    No raises in four years, 100% cut of 401(k) match, triple contribution to benefits in one year, no bonuses, and layoff after layoff. There is no direction and every single decision made here is with the focus on this quarter. Long term vision or planning does not exist here in any way, shape or form.

    Advice to Management

    It's probably too late, the company already looks destroyed, but in the event anything is salvageable, stop worrying so much about this quarters results and look to actually build something sustainable.

    Pros

    Some very smart people. Great co-workers.

    Cons

    Hierarchical. Unable to grow the company. Currently laying off almost 50% of the people from US and Germany. The work environment in US is deteriorating.

    Advice to Management

    Need more engagement between upper management and non-management employees. Need to grow team work and embrace diversity more. Hardly any minority group member in the senior executive team.
