Pros

If you Love Stress and a future that your unsure about, then come to Activant.

Cons

Training and education of employees simply does not exist. Career paths start and stop at square one.

Advice to Management

Invest in your employees. You do not keep people with empty promises and pipe dreams. You really should spend time looking at what the different locations have to offer vs what you think you see.

Consolidating redundancies is great but what is the down side and is it really practical in all cases, are you sure they are really redundant?

There are a lot of un-happy people within Activant and not just a single division or location, there are alot of people within the company, I think more then you imagine.

    Pros

    Freedom to make your own decisions and limited management oversight allows individuals to produce on their own terms. It is fairly easy to obtain productivity and bonus goals.

    Cons

    Limited to no opportunity to advance within the company, there is limited to no training offered, and employee reviews are rarely if ever conducted. Activant is owned by venture capitalists and has an excessive amount of debt and It appears that management decisions are driven by the outstanding debt and restrictions of the debt. Without the ability to refinance and the current economic issues lowering revenue the short term does not look good and I suspect more layoffs in the near future.

    Advice to Management

    Take a close look at middle management, nepotism, and cronyism

    Pros

    The company has been a market leader with ERP software and maintains a large customer base.

    Cons

    Senior management in the Sales department has taken a very arrogant posture while attempting to go into new markets. Their product is one of the most expensive and in this economy, that's a dangerous attitude to take. Sales are at one of the lowest points in the company's history with no end in site for 2009.

    Advice to Management

    It's time to leave.
