    I worked at Cincom full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Some very competent people, not flashy, can learn a lot as I did working in software product development. Had a very strong technology and product suite in the 90s. Lots of strong experienced people with incredibly long tenures makes for product stability.

    Cons

    Products are now ancient. Company is milking old technologies and completely unsuited for the oncoming new technology trends and in every sense of the word a dinosaur.
    The management keeps getting reshuffled constantly without being held accountable for their performance.
    It is a privately held company, and has been run by one person since inception.

    Advice to Management

    No advice to management, as this is a company clearly in decline.

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

    Pros

    Great people to work with/for, low stress, tuition reimbursement, and stable. Great flexibility to work from home if need be.

    Cons

    Low pay. No extras. No 401K match, OK insurance plans, no raises, no cost of living adjustments, somewhat behind the curve technically. A general feeling of "let's get this done so we can sell it".

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

    Pros

    Co-workers are really nice to work with. Very easy going. Senior management lets you do your work without micro-managing.

    Cons

    Stuck in the past. Does not give any extras. Christmas email is one stating that company will not reimburse managers for taking employees out for lunch. Employees must purchase there own monitor, keyboard and coffee.

    Advice to Management

    Learn the technology you are selling, using, and that your employees use. Learn about good engineering techniques.

    Pros

    The people are outstanding. as an employee you're empowered to branch out and take on additional responsibility w/o asking.

    Cons

    Raises are non-existent forcing good people to leave. They need to take care of its only real asset - its people. Change is coming from the top but is it change for the sake of change?

    Advice to Management

    give raises.

    I worked at Cincom full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    No one really pays attention to what you do if you're sitting at the level above telemarketer, but below any sort of management so you have the opportunity to test and learn skills in nearly any department.
    There are wonderful people who really care about you at this company.

    Cons

    As everyone has mentioned, the lack of upward mobility and raises, let alone any sort of yearly merit increases is a hard culture to work in. Management is very short-sighted and seemingly hasn't realized that the lack of a new-name sale in years means that they're not hitting the correct mark in the marketplace. Lack of leadership and accountability has led the company to a bad place where it is today. Nepotism runs rampant and most seem to attempt to buoy the bad ideas of senior leadership for fear of further pay cuts or job loss.

    Advice to Management

    Decide whether you're there to ride the company into the ground or if you truly want to turn the ship around. If you want to turn the ship around, make hard choices, hire the right people (they most likely cost a little more than you'd like) and actually LISTEN to them.

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

    Pros

    a few really good folks there, work-life ok.

    Cons

    many folks have never worked anywhere else, most have not had a salary increase for over 5 years, no 401k match, very much living in the past, like 1970s past!

    Advice to Management

    time to shut the doors for good.
