    Pros

    Great people, unfortunately most have left or are completely miserable.

    Cons

    There isn't anything good to say. Management is out of touch and discourages innovative thinking. The company can't get out of its own way with all the bureaucracy and nepotism. If you are a thinker and doer you will fail miserably because you will challenge the status quo. Top brass is out for themselves and shows no respect or appreciation for anyone else. If I could give a no-star rating I would.

    Advice to Management

    Management doesn't take advice.

    I worked at Axway full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    You can meet outstanding people there but the nepotism, the toxic environment and the impotent management are ruining the place

    Cons

    The moment we got acquired by Axway things went south - the bureaucracy skyrocketed and the official promotions/bonuses were halted for the most part.

    Promotions (when they happen) are kept in secret simply because they were no longer earned but negotiated on case by case basis and given to friends and families. They don't want you to know that the only two incompetent people in the team are the only ones promoted from the whole team.

    If you are on L1/H1 visa forget about promotion and salary increase no matter how great you are. They know you have very little options and no leverage, so they will just keep you underpaid. No salary change unless you are part of a certain clique. When you say you are leaving then they start negotiating. This has been Axway's tactic since day one. They even have a separate budget just for that. The performance reviews are joke and predetermined.

    Axway closed the office in Redwood City, CA with a very short notice. The people were told that this is not about money. No one bought that lie. Shortly after they acquired a company in the Silicon Valley. And then another one. Now they are closing even more offices. I am sure the management repeat the same lie over and over again.

    SHEER NEPOTISM! Repeat: SHEER NEPOTISM! In ALL Axway sites I worked and on all levels! Everybody knows who they are but everybody maintains a position of neutrality to keep the paychecks flowing.

    Senior and Principle roles are extremely inflated and have lost any value because they are given to "friends and family". Little to none career growth if you don't have connections and you are not someone's buddy/spouse.

    A lot of people are doing literally nothing when they are in the office let alone when they "work" from home.

    The vast majority of new "products" in the last several years were a complete failure. And the people responsible for this are making good career out of it. No accountability whatsoever. Axway cannot make new successful products. And they always manage to ruin the existing successful products they have acquired from other companies.

    Emails in french all over the place. They are constantly trying to remind you that you are working in a french company. Even emails as short as "The maintenance has completed" and sent to non-french mailing lists are translated in French. Go figure.

    There is maybe only one thing Axway is up-to-date with the latest trends in the corporate world of 21st century - forced diversity and affirmative action hiring. Because of this many incompetent people are getting hired and/or promoted only because there are from a certain group. Axway is all about diversity as long as it is not intellectual diversity.

    It is like government job. A french government job to be precise. Draw your own conclusions.

    Advice to Management

    They need no advice. They like it the way it is! This is their dream job!
