    Pros

    Bullet on your CV. Work from home policy. Frequent opportunities to laugh at CEO. They treat the college hires better than current employees.

    Cons

    Management uses stack rankings for measly salary increases. Layoffs in fall and Spring. No privacy. Both in the office and your electronic privacy. Health insurance continues to increase. They blame increases on ACA but continue to save money for the company while acting like they are here for you.

    Advice to Management

    Time for another acquisition, so be prepared for another layoff to pay for the new execs in the salary budget. Quit schilling your slaves to post positive reviews. The CEO is an avid trump donor.

    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.

    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.

    I have just reached my year anniversary at Bottomline! I had a great year working for and with a progressive, high-energy company and team.
    I consider myself extremely fortunate to work in such a positive culture and environment with great employees and customers.
    The Portsmouth office is a great space to work in with the benefits of cafe's on all floors, free coffee and fruit! We are truly committed to the community, which has also been important to me.
    Thank you BT!

    Cons

    Some of our office processes are still manual, but I know there are a number of important projects underway to change this.

    Advice to Management

    Continue investing in technology and people!
