    Desperately Seeking Revenue

    Former Employee - Director in Dallas, TX

    I worked at Vitria Technology

    Pros

    Met some great people. They were the ones in the trenches solving real world problems.

    Cons

    Sr Management is clueless. An exec with the initials BM is responsible for destroying the services arm of the company, which by the way, accounted for 85% of revenues up thru 2008. New products have floundered and the reactive marketing ensures that Vitria remains 2-3 years behind the technology curve.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on something and develop a makes-sense go to market strategy. Lots of brain power in the tech area, but clueless marketing and management talent will hold this company back.

    Going private a few years ago only hides this,.

    I worked at Vitria Technology

    Pros

    Small company based in Sunnyvale. Company has some exciting technology around Adobe Flex. Strong activity in Federal area driving product direction.

    Cons

    Small private company. It is difficult to tell how sales are going since going private. Product direction seems to be haphazard in that new features are added to products without the core functionality being nailed down.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get a stable product out to the market. I remember the Business Ware product and it was excellent but the experience I've heard recently by former employees is that M3O is a great product but not as well baked as BusinessWare is/was.

    You can wear a lot of hats if you don't mind the uncertainty.

    I worked at Vitria Technology

    Pros

    Being a small company once has the opportunity to wear many hats and get the opportunity to do new things. The scope of the jobs are inherently larger than those of larger companies. I had responsibilities of typically higher level titles. Vitria's product is very interesting. The Company started as an EAI provider and had great results in telecomm and healthcare. After the bubble popped and those customers experienced a down-turn, Vitria was in turn impacted. Vitria is now considered a leader in BPM which has a lot of potential.

    Cons

    The Company was struggling to redfine itself as a BPM provider in a soft market. As a result the Company was down-sizing so there wasn't much room for career advancement.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on customers and employees and financial results should follow.

    In desperate need of leadership, direction and vision

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at Vitria Technology full-time

    Pros

    Technology platform has potential to be successful if product management, marketing and sales could gain traction. Some newer management smart but without focus or autonomy. Solid amount of revenue from legacy product. CTO respected.

    Cons

    No room for career growth. Could not attract a solid sales team. Engineering management had a "know-it-all" attitude and had difficulty prioritizing product functionality from field -- did not seem receptive to outside suggestions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Some management should step down and hire/trust a proven leader to run the company before all the legacy product customers disappear. Get a true 360 degree view from employees and management from a 3rd party survey/consulting company, and heed their suggestions.
