    I worked at Agile Software Corp full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Talented people - some of the best in the industry
    Solid, happy customer base
    A good foundation and approach to solving enterprise process problems - focusing on enabling best practices, doing what is best for customers

    Cons

    Chasing big hairy enterprise accounts meant taking product in a new, challenging direction
    Left behind existing customers
    Acquisition by one of the largest software/solution companies was the death knell of the product

    Advice to Management

    Culture, focus, solution value matters to customers and employees. Something very good was built, but then lost. While it is "the way of business," perhaps a different path could have been chosen. One for the case studies.


  2. "Product Mgr"

    I worked at Agile Software Corp full-time

    Pros

    Good people. Smartest that I ever worked with. Very conscience and committed team that over delivered on their promises.

    Cons

    Acquired by Oracle in 2007 and they haven't innovated much since the date of the acquisition. The product has challenges and scales well for the biggest customers. But, now with Oracle owning the company they are milking the maintenance dollars and forcing the hand of the customers.

    Advice to Management

    Stick to your roots and rebuild the culture of the company within the company. The lack of innovation will ultimately be the demise and downfall.

  3. "Good Technology, but if you not in HQ, it's tough to advance"

    Great people, technology. Flexible work hours / work life balance

    Cons

    If you are not in the corporate office, advancing in the organization is difficult.
