    I worked at Bentley Systems (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Not many so to speak.

    Cons

    If you're not in the right click, you're probably not going to be around long. Management is blind or refuses to listen to subordinates. My manager had blatant double standards and was hardly ever in the office. I'm gone and she's still there. Top level executives are nothing more than the boys club. I brought my concerns up the ladder and 2 weeks latter I was let go. I worked there at corporate headquarters for 16.5 years.

    Advice to Management

    Get new management that are people focused.

    Pros

    Smart, talented people
    Work/life balance
    Good benefits

    Cons

    Company used to have an employee-focused, family feel, which has noticeably shifted. Unfortunately, there have been many layoffs of late, which appear to be indiscriminate. Some exceptional employees have been let go. HR is ineffective in dealing with toxic/troublesome employees. Serious issues have been ignored. In some cases, the toxic employees appear to be coddled and indulged by HR, rather than disciplined. This ongoing problem obviously has a significant effect on morale.

    Pros

    Great benefits even if they sometimes shift. HR is very responsive and knowledgeable. Work-life balance is extremely difficult to achieve for execs.

    Cons

    Tough travel schedule for execs in times of transition.

    Pros

    Family oriented company who understands life events and in many cases provides a good work-life balance. People in the company are by far and large a great bunch to work with.

    Cons

    Difficult atmosphere with reorganization and lack of communication. There is no clear way for promotions to occur.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize the achievements of the hardest working individuals and consider comp time if money is not an option for rewarding them. Provide a means for growth within Bentley.
