I worked at Axceler full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Using latest (or close to latest) .Net technology. Compensation was reasonable for the industry. The company supplied equipment (PC's etc) were of good quality and facilitated productivity.

Cons

Organizational and process changes were too frequent and had too little justification. The company developed a habit of replacing proven contributors with questionable new hires. Some personnel decisions may have qualified as age discrimination.

Advice to Management

Know who your difference makers are. Stop replacing your difference makers with arrogant cast-offs from sister companies and junior level techies who have not had the experience of developing successful commercial software product.

    Pros

    Lots of energy, the motto was "One Team", and to a large extent, that was true - people worked together well. The company had an absolutely stellar commitment to its customers - it really made me proud

    Cons

    Towards the end, the company was spreading itself too thin, trying to be very "modern", but in the process, losing sight of some of its core values, like excellent products and excellent service

    Advice to Management

    You shouldn't have sold the company...

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

    Pros

    Axceler had one of the best cultures around for the most part -- fast paced, great products, incredible service. People really care about one another. executive management was pretty solid. Sales was given a free pass to behave badly with no reprecussions for missing numbers which was annoying. Sales management in LA caused a lot of problems including a lawsuit but he was the exception not the rule.

    Cons

    Metalogix. They want to be the biggest company in the Sharepoint space -- and that's supposed to motivate me, how? They want to retain people but have no idea how. At the rate they are going, they are going to kill what was left. Lots of people, especially in sales, ready to jump ship. They bought a great brand and are throwing it away by being arrogant and bureaucratic,

    Advice to Management

    Metalogix management -- Listen to the Axceler employees. You're destroying what you just bought. Team may be young, but they have accomplished alot and know how to sell, support and develop products. You may learn something.
