    for the most part everyone who works with you is nice and fun.

    leadership and company in general are heading in a bad direction. i would avoid working here, it's an obvious downward spiral here. they're cheap and penny pinch everywhere.

    Lot of opportunities, if you are a hard-working and smart employee, it pays off.

    Pros

    Quality products (DocAve, Compliance Guardian, Governance Automation)

    The sheer ignorance, low quality, horrible pay structure, and constant paranoia this company delivers will make you beyond happy when you go somewhere else.

    Cons

    Management gives a 'figure it out' mentality.
    This company has refused to pay at least 4 reps that I'm aware of the sales comp based in their plan. Contracts don't mean a thing.
    Learn to train yourself.
    Accounting based in China so closing a deal takes patience.
    Enjoy hearing the same bs about change and growth and new talent every all hands when really it's just management hifiving themselves as they drink their new flavor of kool-aid.
    Think of benefits like you're in China.
    Very low pay based on industry standard, assuming they pay you your comp.

    Advice to Management

    Leave.

    Pros

    This company has a lot going on. There is so much to learn, great mentorship, good advancement opportunities and amazing colleagues. The culture is one that pushes you to work hard but also does not discourage taking breaks if you need one. This is a great company to work for

    Cons

    Large corporation. Takes a while to figure out where to go for things. Can be long hours but for the most part staying late is self regulated. Very few cons to working here.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work!

    Pros

    Many issues exist and no one really addresses them. If you are in sales you have good products and loads of people in China emailing you overnight to explain to you what you need to do for them so they can get their job done...

    Cons

    A few people have no integrity and write reviews to make themselves look good to management which Okay I get but then your review's not a review
    Also everyone is in it for themselves. Everyone wants a percentage and chases you for their stuff, doesn't reply to you when its your stuff and that goes from the Chinese spam artists to senior mgment

    Advice to Management

    Please do not write reviews here and read the real reviews
    Ask China to email us less so can get to work they should do their own work (I am not gonna ask that they been brought here to make life easier for everybody coz that's not gonna happen unless trump forces you)

    Pros

    You will make some quick friends, as seemingly everyone tries to stick through the same types of issues & problems via management. Product is stable, but not evolving.

    Cons

    Soulless decisions are the norm. For years, the goal has been to 'go public,' and you better believe if a knife in your back makes that more realistic - so be it. The company tries to sell on the thought that going public is a good thing for you the employee, but in reality, those in the field have zero benefit for the company to reach that goal. Take a lower than market average salary, take cuts in your compensation, take take take...all for the 'greater good.' You are only as valuable as your pipeline...which by the way, isn't always just yours. People seem to want credit for things that should not be theirs based on title.

    So...What will it take to go public? Depends who you ask. Everyone is a VP. Everyone feeds you BS. It is the only company that I have ever worked at and literally have had calls with different VPs where they are ripping one another to save themselves, and offer zero consistency statement to statement.

    Everything is parallel, and it turns into high school if you dare speak above the level directly above you. The same people that will listen to basic complaints from employees, about things they know to be true, will then act shocked when people who either quit or are fired then come to an outlet like Glassdoor to speak truth.

    Advice to Management

    The field knows you are just passing the buck down from the top, so stop hiding it. Stop drinking the Kool Aid, and realize what real togetherness and company culture can be.
