No opinion of CEO

I have been working at Advent Software full-time (More than a year)

Pros

benefits, relaxed environment, people, good for those who have a family and are looking for a long term position, nice NY office, they encourage health and awareness, volunteerism, community assistance.

Cons

clients are pretentious, demanding, and unfriendly. Lack of raises or promotions, upper management is good, but middle management is horrible.

Advice to Management

improve your middle managers, stop grandfathering employees into management roles simply because of their tenure, and not their capabilities.

    Pros

    Great work life balance.
    Great people to work with.
    Flexible work environment.
    Dog friendly office.

    Cons

    Career growth is minimal within the company.
    Less competitive salaries than other software firms.
    Corporate ladder seems to be getting taller and taller; new roles created to give members of management promotions.

    Advice to Management

    How is it that some executive managers get promoted during a year where there were layoffs? Layoffs were made so the company can meet its target profitability goals, yet this seemed to just went to line the pockets of managers.
