    Pros

    Great co workers, nice work life balance, and good benefits

    Cons

    low paying compared to rest of industry peers, incredibly difficult compensation plan to understand, unrealistic targets, more concerned about managing you then coaching you to be successful, overengineered sales process

    Advice to Management

    Figure out how to fairly compensate your sales reps or else face the reality that your paying people to look for better jobs and not hit your unrealistic numbers

    Pros

    Loved working for this company, was laid off in the 3rd wave of layoffs after 10 years. The work culture is fantastic.

    Cons

    They are starting to cut the benefits a little each year. It started with health insurance and then moved to bonuses and such.

    I have been working at Bentley Systems full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good autonomous work environment. Do your job from anyplace you want. Office space is available and encouraged for many. Nice people.

    Cons

    Seems like every year there is a reorg. Poor/inconsistent communication from management. Used to have leadership. Now it's moving toward a management style with no real direction, just numbers.

    Advice to Management

    Remember the business depends on the quality and satisfaction of colleagues. Creativity is important for sustainability. We're not just numbers, we're assets.

    I worked at Bentley Systems full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Appears like a normal company form the outside.

    Cons

    This was the strangest place I have ever worked. Tons of hours, everyday from 8 or 9 am until 8, 9 or 10pm. Within 6 months, I had 100 consecutive dinners there. Given difficult time taking any time off... even for bereavement leave. Was told I had to make the time up. Manager I worked for did not have the technical skillset for the role and was a terrible manager causing people working for him/her to quit after a short period of time, including the author from Feb 8th.

    Advice to Management

    There has been turnover in the role and people have complained to HR, so guessing no one cares. Maybe someone should listen. Almost sued this company.

    I have been working at Bentley Systems full-time

    Pros

    Very flexible work from home or office capabilities. I am extremely appreciate of this and believe it is very hard to find at other companies. However, this flexibility depends on your management team - every department treats it differently. I was able to travel

    Cons

    Organizational change management is a mess. They make major changes every year and don't do a great job of letting people know. Much of upper-management does not value creativity and new ideas.
