    I have been working at Argent Software full-time

    Pros

    There is a lot of exposure to different technologies, and the culture of development is a disciplined, carefully thought out approach.

    There is no coding on-the-fly. Everything should be documented prior to coding.

    Cons

    It'll take some time to get used to the coding standards

    Advice to Management

    Possibly branch out into Java or .NET, or a better way to marry the base software with web technologies.

    Pros

    Commission percentages are above average and we can get commission on annual renewal contracts as well.

    Brand has been around for a long time, and new products keep the face fresh.

    You learn a lot of things about IT on a daily basis, and are quizzed on it to make sure what you learn stays in there!!

    Cons

    Working from home is a double-edged sword. It's relaxing, but can get a little too relaxing sometimes...

    Advice to Management

    In-depth internal training courses for Sales Managers who want to learn a little bit more about IT.

    I worked at Argent Software full-time

    Pros

    Let's see.... compensation is good, office is in a great location, the Sales Director and senior management actually talk to staff.

    The products are enterprise grade and supposedly scale for small to large customers. Products have won many awards.

    I enjoy the structure and discipline (to each their own), as well as the travel opportunities.

    Cons

    It is not an easy job. The environment is strict, almost military/boot camp, in the precision and formatting of emails.

    Instructions need to be followed to the letter, or else management lets you know their displeasure.

    I've seen plenty of co-workers fall of the wagon because of this. There is a very specific way to do things in order to earn management's trust.

    Advice to Management

    Keep improving the products and consider travel bonuses
