    Pros

    The people you work with on a day to day basis are great. Very helpful and friendly. Free Sodas, Coffee and Tea.

    Upper management doesn't support the employees. They do not provide the tools to get the job done. Some employees are working on 20 year old desk tops.

    Pay below average

    Marketing and Development were smart and amazing

    Poor Comp Plan; Poor leadership with panicked expectations for sales and no faith in staff to do their jobs; This is not a place for anyone beyond entry level sales

    Figure out where the issues are and support the talent; encourage the creativity needed to bring the strengths out in a really good product and understand that it takes a long time to sell services

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

    Pros

    Worked here for 9yrs. Cheap pay for employees, but morale was good when it was a private company. Still cheap pay, lost bonus plan, and no morale after it was bought out by another company. They dropped a lot of talented employees and kept very few special ones when moving operations. If you choose not to learn you stay stagnant, if you work hard to learn new things then potential for growth is there - but you must take a lot of initiative on your own to grow. Management changes a lot and the structure didn't seem stable. There are very good managers but it depends which department.

    Cons

    Very low morale - everybody dreads going into work. A lot of great talent was lost and the ones they kept around worked twice as hard to fill in the gaps with no raise or bonus or any kind of incentive. management should focus on customers and product and not just product. You can have a decent product but it's nothing is there are barely any clients using it.

    Advice to Management

    New management - take care of your employees.

    Pros

    Flexible work hours and lenient boss

    Cons

    Negative people tend to succeed, manipulate, and maintain jobs. People who care are bullied by those who feel threatened.

    Advice to Management

    Saving your job is killing the company. Work together and collaborate. Do not manipulate. Communicate!

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

    Pros

    If you want to move to Texas, this place is for you. Otherwise, if you can get into the Gupta division, you might have some hope.

    Cons

    Flawed strategic vision, minimal knowledge of software industry, unable to execute business plans, lack of sales, lack of senior leadership, poor middle management. Morale is non-existent outside of Texas, toxic culture. Hiring is based on a good-old-boy network that consistently hires poor performers.

    Advice to Management

    Abdicate. Let someone with a clue start over fresh.
