I have been working at SumTotal full-time
Recently the company moved from annual performance appraisals, to more frequent, monthly feedback discussions. The program is called 30x30, which stands for 30 mins of feedback, every 30 days. It's very easy for managers to do, not administratively burden like the performance appraisal process used to be, and gives employees consistent, real-time feedback every 30 days or so. It also gives employees a chance to bring up concerns to their manager every 30 days and get feedback from them. This was exciting to go through as part of the company, being the pioneers in the industry to move to a more frequent feedback review process and away from the old appraisal process. It is nice to be able to set an example for our customers and have a story to tell of using our own product.
There are also many other great reasons why it's a great place to work, which are too many to list: great benefits, vacation, holidays, birthday off. Snacks/soda/water/coffee free in every office, the benefit line up is top notch, the people are great to work with.
We are coming off of the last few years of transformation. This means there was lots of change and shift within the company. Some people can adapt, some can't. For those who can, they continue to be successful.
Advice to Management
Continue to move in the direction you are going in regards to people. More communication, more recognition & rewards, to add to what's currently being done.
I applied online. I interviewed at SumTotal (Gainesville, FL).
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.
