    I worked at Coaxis full-time

    Pros

    Respectful environment. Transparency with management. Good benefits.

    Cons

    Somewhat of a learning curve for understanding the large scale construction management sector; once you get it, however, the companys vision is clear.

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

    Pros

    Benefits, Building, and a few non-union-thinking people that are left!

    Cons

    All about profit
    Very disjointed efforts
    Pass the buck mentality
    Support personnel milking overtime while call volumes are at record levels
    Management doesn't care enough to dig deep; they just want to know when we can deliver, no matter how bad of a quality
    Great talent is bleeding out the door
    No effort to take advice from people that are still here on the past, so mistakes aren't repeated

    Advice to Management

    Lock up your talented employees and empower them to make decisions. Get rid of the regional princesses and bring everyone under the same set of rules.

    The reason all but 1 VP is left (either by choice or otherwise) is because they saw the writing on the wall. We just hoped things would be different, and they are, but worse!

    Nobody is consulted when new processes are put in, and it has become a police state.

    I worked at Coaxis full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Located in a decent building. Software is nice where you can right click on a field and see the database properties. Coworkers were ok. The HR team seems to have nice things to say about it on Glassdoor.

    Cons

    The upper management at this company is entirely greedy. They will work you raw until there's nothing left. They overcharge the customers ($200 an hour for report development) and then they under estimate the jobs leaving the developers to further infuriate the customers by sending change orders. Oh, they love signing those. Then, the management insists, no, requires that the developers bill 7+ hours per day or they're just not cutting it there. The software team also keeps releasing their software without updating the built-in reports that have been updated over and over again by the report team. Why? MORE PROFIT$.

    Advice to Management

    Charge the customers less, maybe estimate a few more hours instead. End change orders!!! This is supposed to be a service that is provided to the customer and you're just milking it for cash and making the developers do the dirty work.

    Pros

    Great working environment to be part of it. Providing a balanced working and life style to the employees.

    Cons

    The working place to open to work there sometimes. There is only a cafe at first floor, which I could get my lunch.

    Pros

    The company has achieved significant growth and recognition in the community despite the challenges of the slow economy. Leadership is progressive and strongly oriented to employees. Excellent balance between achieving business results and investing in employee care and development.

    Cons

    I can't think of any negatives to working at Coaxis.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing so well.
