Working remotely Quality people to work with Ability to develop production projects as well as do R&D and POCs
Change in ownership was disruptive, going from publicly traded to privately owned. This transition period is over now, though. Decisions are more based on money now, not as caring for the people as the company once was.1

The people on the individual teams are great. Depending on what group you work in, and what discipline, you will get active involvement in your career or absolutely nothing. There is a lot of opportunities in some groups to collaborate across lines of business ("segments") which is unique in comparison to most of my corporate roles in the past. Prior to the sale to Thoma Bravo, this would have easily been a 5-star review and genuinely a company I could have seen myself staying for as long as they would have me.
Even before the sale, there were some cons (disconnect between disciplines, not prioritizing technical debt, etc). That said, I think there are cons at every company. However, after the Thoma Bravo sale things have just gone downhill constantly. From the beginning they spoke constantly about buying Bottomline "for the culture" and then proceeded to strip the entire culture away within a year. There used to be just small things that Bottomline would do (e.g. early-close at 2p ET on days before a holiday or holiday weekend) that all together made you really feel like Bottomline cared about it's employees. Charity matching every year, a wonderful program where they would provide scholarships to young people, etc. Now, I think for most US based roles they fear for their job regardless of their position.13

BT has undergone some changes in the past year and a half. Revised our strategy to make it more global. We are investing in the products that we feel are the future of Bottomline and the FinTech industry as a whole. Also have a goal to become the #1 company in the B2B payments space. Despite my role having occasional ambiguity, most employees have experienced this in different departments. What makes the company stand out is the "we're all in this together" and the "we've all experienced this" mindset that makes everyone feel a part of the team. When you experience challenge, if your manager and team have your back, it's pretty hard to fail. This culture is the best I've experienced.
Ambiguity is not for everyone. But in 22 years, I've experienced this at every company. Years ago overall pay was under review as it seemed slightly below market. BT has made drastic steps to improve that, even as we speak today.1

Remote work opportunity after COVID.
Micromanagement from “Executive Leadership Team”. Crazy expectations from managers in the Paymode-X department. Executive team with unreasonable revenue expectations driving down work-life balance. Overall, total BS all around. Things became really bad after the Private Equity acquisition. I would never recommend this place to anyone.1

Literally zero outside of the cold brew tap
Where do I even begin?! This organization is so backwards it truly is sad. They do not value employees and the HR team is one of the most poorly run I have ever encountered. The head of total comp and rewards is a joke and the people that they are bringing in the door are extremely indicative of the giant mess of an organization that they are. They are going through multiple RIFs but telling people that they are done...they will never be done cutting when they focus only on cost savings and not on the people. Just so sad to see something that was built so strong be destroyed by greed and talent-less individuals. If you are a job seeker, do not trust what the recruiters tell you - they are trained to breeze over all of the negatives and convince you to accept so that they can hit their goals. All in all just a really sad and awful organization.10

In my opinion, the downsides varied per individual, although there aren't many. If I had to mention a few cons, it would be the importance of working with the right team/manager, which again relates to personal growth and development. Additionally, one more con would be the UI/UX design disconnect, which I consider to be the main drawback.
