    I have been working at Bottomline Technologies full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I've been with the company for two years, and it is really exciting to see so many great things coming together: Commercially - Business Payments as a space is heating up, and we have market-leading solutions. Financially, the rapid growth in subs and trans and high recurring revenue makes us extremely stable financially. From an employee perspective the best thing is "Working with and for each other" is more than a slogan. There is a real 'can-do' spirit and sense of fun and camaraderie that makes it a great place to be!

    Cons

    As a growth company, this is not a place to come and try to just do the minimum or just what is asked. People go the extra mile for customers and colleagues, and really want team mates to do the same,

    Advice to Management

    Stay the course!

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

    Pros

    Innovative products, with lots of opportunity to move around the company to gain new challenges and learn new things. The CEO is a genuine person who cares about people. People are smart, fun to work with, and dedicated to each other. We really do focus on customers much more than other companies I worked with in the past. We are working on 12 major customer projects at once, which shows the hard work is paying off.

    Cons

    People who don't cut it get cut - there are culls of bad hires once a year (if you are good this prevents you from having to carry the work they aren't getting done). There is a lot of work, and sometimes the customer commitments get ahead of us and we are slammed catching up to keep the customers happy.

    Advice to Management

    Speed up the hiring process.

    I have been working at Bottomline Technologies full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The people - smart, committed, always willing to help each other
    The company - always there to support every employee, promotes a customer first culture
    Customers - so many loyal customers that have stayed with Bottomline because the company takes care of them
    Individual - if you take initiative you can grow and will be rewarded

    Cons

    Not a place for people that do not believe and live the company culture. If you do not do that, you should leave before you are asked to leave.

    Advice to Management

    Keep hiring great people and don't compromise because of pressure to fill roles.
    As you continue to grow, don't lose the culture.

    I have been working at Bottomline Technologies full-time

    Pros

    I ave worked at Bottomline for a number of years, and have enjoyed working with some of the best people I have ever met. The company has an incredibly strong set of ethics and our customers partner with us through every challenge because of the quality of our teams. Many folks have left Bottomline only to return at a later time because they realized the excellent work environment they left. I am proud to be part of Bottomline and its people, and I will work here until retirement.

    Cons

    High expectations and standards that need high energy and commitment is required. It is not for everyone.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to look for strong talent among new comers and college grads

    I have been working at Bottomline Technologies full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The two best things about Bottomline are the opportunity for growth and the people you get to work with. This company is growing fast and that leaves opportunities for people to join and grow while here. The people around you are just amazing. They care about each other at a level above most companies. If you are up for a fast passed environment with lots of chances to grow, this can be a great place to join.

    Amazing opportunity right now in the marketplace to bring a customer first delivery of some really innovative products
    Good benefits - much better than my last company
    Beautiful space to work in
    Company goes way above and beyond for employees in need
    Good history of promoting from within including several top executives roles
    Recruiting bonus for bringing people to Bottomline. I've brought several people here.

    Cons

    The fast passed environment is not for everyone.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the focus on hiring great people that bring innovative ideas to Bottomline.

    Very dedicated, highly motivated employee team. You will be challenged to give your best every day. You will be surrounded by people who are doing the same. The more responsibility you can handle, the more you will get.

    Cons

    Priorities can shift and deadlines can be unforgiving. You must be flexible, nimble and ready to adapt to changing realities. For some, this is the most interesting part of the role.

    Pros

    I can't say enough about how great the people at Bottomline are! It's wonderful to work in such a positive, uplifting environment. Everyone is friendly and helpful, always willing to answer a question or help with a project. It actually feels like my work is important and appreciated, something that isn't always apparent in all companies. The office itself is beautiful and comfortable, and the benefits are great. Work-life balance is amazing. I feel very fortunate to have gotten into a company like BT.

    Cons

    None that I can think of!
