    Pros

    Many opportunities with the parent company as it is a very large, diverse company.

    Cons

    Non-stop fire drill mode due to poor financial performance. Morale is horrible. Work-life balance is non-existent. Talent is being wasted spinning wheels on parent company pressure. Data and systems are the worst I've ever seen.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Weak top leadership. CEO is used to taking companies in good shape and making them better. He is not a turn around guy at all. Other senior leaders could be effective but the systems are horrible and doing the simplest tasks are time consuming.

    Pros

    Very personable CIO, he's very friendly and probably the only executive that walks around and establishes relationships and talks to people. I guess that's important considering it is a software company.

    Cons

    Not a very diverse top line.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Top Line should establish relationships throughout the office.

    Pros

    My direct team is phenomonal! We woro to achieve the company aligned goals and we do it well as a team.

    Cons

    Onboarding, or lack there of, needs major work. From what I have seen and heard, the way in which employees are terminated is quite harsh. I understand this is a company and they have to protect their company but these are also people who have to protect their families. If there have been no warnings or 'write ups' then why be so harsh to a person that didn't see it coming? That won't get us to 'a great place to work' anytime soon!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Care about your people not just your results. You may see better results and invest in QUALITY people if you took 5 minutes to see how their day is going OR ask if they need anything to make their job easier.

    Pros

    A lot of really great potential is packed into this organization. There are a lot of bright people, the products they bring to market are useful and have few competitors, and the organization has solid backing from it's parent company ABB.

    Cons

    There is so much wrong with the "east coast" politics its scary, even more so in the technology realm where it is managed out of a former penal colony (looking at you Brisbane) and the prevailing attitude seems to be "if it doesn't make me look good, I don't care".

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Your senior managers need to go. Period. Look at their contributions to the firm, other than the "bottom line" or "goals". Look at the attrition under them. Ask why great people are leaving. Then fix it.

    Pros

    Some very smart people work here. Great place to learn if you're fresh out of college. Good work/life balance. Good benefits.

    Cons

    Not much ability to move around. Below average pay. Very process oriented, that could be a good or bad thing for some people. Work became monotonous after a while.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow developers to experiment! Use some more interesting technologies. Less meetings, please.
