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

    Pros

    I've worked for Bottomline Technologies for the last 11+ years, and in that time I have witnessed a great many things that speak to the heart of this company. The depth of commitment to employees is second to none. When there is someone in need Bottomline steps up in ways that most companies do not. These acts of kindness are not publicized, but I've witnessed them first hand on many occasions. Bottomline Technologies truly lives the guiding principal of "With and for each other"

    Cons

    Still making progress on the Agile transformation. At times when the pressure mounts Agile principals get tossed out the window.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in the employees and help them progress on their career path. Don't be fearful that they look for other opportunities.

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

    Pros

    I just passed my one year mark at Bottomline as well. My employment here marked my leap from one industry into this completely new (to me) field. Bottomline takes the time to invest in the training and development of the people that they hire. My investment here has been met ten fold with opportunity and support. I absolutely love the culture and the challenge.

    Cons

    This is not a place to rest on your laurels. If you do not like a challenge or can not learn new systems, this is not a fit for you. Great supportive environment, but generally challenging (by design).

    Advice to Management

    From my vantage point: the more you communicate specific goals, the more this staff wants to rise to the challenge. Hiring seems to be focused on hard work, competence and motivation. Setting clear markers for success has been a good strategy.

    Pros

    This is a company which truly cares about its employee's. Team members are not just employees but are part of an extended family. The work is fast paced but very rewarding. Out of the companies I have worked for I have fun here, the people are great, the work is exciting and cutting edge.

    Cons

    I cant think of any real cons to working at Bottomline. The work is faced paced and can sometimes be stressful but at the end of a day I feel I've made a difference; my opinions and contributions are appreciated.

    I have been working at Bottomline Technologies full-time

    Pros

    The head of my LOB is great! She is approachable, decisive and has great resolution skills. For the last 3 years I have worked in her organization in a couple different capacities, with several managers in between. No matter what the organizational structure, she makes herself available, listens and provides guidance.
    The US benefit package is great.

    Cons

    To be successful at Bottomline, you need to be a motivated, self-starter. Those that struggle are individuals who prefer more constant attention from managers.

    I am a recent hire and feel the company cares about me and my co-workers. The pay and benefits are good, and the work and life balance is great. The company has a very promising future, and I am very happy to be a part of it.

    Cons

    Like a lot of companies, there are computer and IT issues that need to be fixed.

    Advice to Management

    So far I feel Management has been very good at letting everyone know what is happening.

    Pros

    for a certain number of years they will be the greatest company to work for.

    Cons

    their love of the "4% solution" is a draconian policy that, if and only if unchecked, will destroy the middle class
