    Pros

    Great people, great training, great environment. I really enjoyed working here. Management was open to your opinions and views and the product was best in class.

    Cons

    With offices in different locations and remote employees, getting things completed could be challenging at times. However, this is true with most all companies with distributed employees

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

    Pros

    The culture was great--people knew they could rely on each other to get things done and they didn't have to worry about looking stupid when asking questions. People crossed over job titles constantly to help one another.

    Cons

    There was a lot of disorganization, largely due to the speed it was growing. There was also quite a bit of "get the deal, regardless of the consequences" mentality, which led to a lot of bad projects and unhappy customers.

    Advice to Management

    If it was to be done over again, I'd suggest doing a more thorough analysis of the reasons that unhappy customers were unhappy, then address the issues uncovered.

    Pros

    Work flexibility, your schedule can be easily worked out to include many external activities.
    The people here are sociable and makes for a nice collaborative environment.

    Professional Development
    Goals of what management dictates as beneficial makes it difficult to realize a place in the future

    I have been working at BigMachines full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Name recognition of Oracle is good. Beer on Fridays. Training was top notch. Sales trainers covered both the product and the process. The development team is also on their A game, this is a market leader.

    Cons

    Very corporate. Corporate structure makes it hard to advance, while salary can be decent, the sales roles can be a grind. Management is usually slow to accept proposed changes, and the Vista Equity team espouses top down managment.
