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

    Pros

    Always something new to try, and has a low turn over on staffing, You are alway encouraged to expand your knowledge and grow. It has been a wonderful place to watch grow and mature as a company. great opportunities for advancement

    Cons

    Occasionally some positions are stretched thin. Sometimes we need to hear something from an outside consultant rather than staff that have been saying the same thing ( we are getting better on this point )

    Advice to Management

    Keep an eye on the pulse of the staff to see when we are overstretching

    Small company with great work life balance and flexibility. Great potential to grow within the company and option to learn a lot about various industries.

    Lack of certain processes but this can be improved quickly and efficiently.

    I have been working at Adlib Software full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Free pop, some fruit, ability to work from home. Some people are very nice. Adlib pays for 50% of your gym membership in a year.

    Cons

    Office atmosphere is lacking. Lots of cubicles in a drab building and a maze of connected offices make it hard to feel like a unified company. Advancement seems limited.

    Advice to Management

    Offer more training opportunities and encourage inter-team communication rather than caution against it constantly. Value longevity and experience with the product.

    I have been working at Adlib Software full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great leadership from Executive Staff. A small company with a big future. HR that actually works for the employees. Great company outings. Online training is encouraged and scheduled through PluralSight.

    Cons

    Very little middle mgmt. so path to promotion not clear. HQ building is an older, humble building.

    Advice to Management

    May need to be more aggressive in removing those who are less engaged. Legacy thinking and attitudes can be detrimental.


  11. "Absent long term goals"

    Star Star Star Star Star

    I worked at Adlib Software full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Friendly people and atmosphere. Small company that at least pretends to care about its workers.

    If you're a corporate drone or pretender who wants to BS your way up to department head, you'll do well there for a while. You can blame your subordinates and senior management will leave you alone for about three years.

    Cons

    Management has no long term goals and it's obvious they and shareholders are only doing the minimum while hoping to be purchased.
    Regular turnover. Firing people provides amusement while letting managers continue the appearance of knowing wtf they're doing.
    Lots of office politics.

    Advice to Management

    Management only pretends to listen to advice, so there's no point to offering any.
