    I have been working at SumTotal full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    I have been at SumTotal for eleven years. In those years we have had some really great chapters and some not so great chapters. The one that we are in now is, by far, the best one yet. We have extremely strong leadership, the product has evolved dramatically, and it is a great place to work. I have been a remote employee for my entire time at SumTotal and have always felt like part of a very tight knit team. I started as an individual contributor and I now manage the entire global organization that I was originally hired into. The company rewards hard work, they applaud and promote innovation, and they do a lot to support employees. In addition to that the company does quite a bit of charity work to positively impact the community. I appreciate what SumTotal is all about and I feel really proud to be a part of what the company is doing.

    Cons

    Communication within divisions of the company is an area being worked on, at times people can get stuck in silos and it is improving but still has some room to grow.

    Advice to Management

    The last couple of years have been years of dramatic change, all for the better. We are now becoming the SumTotal that we have been striving to be for many years. It is a very exciting new chapter, we seem to finally be the company that we've wanted to be for some time.

    The Process began with an online personality or IQ test. Then a phone interview was next. Next was an in person visit with 3 support managers. After a week or so after that, the offer was made.
