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

Pros

Location
Benefit package
Bonuses
Potential for company growth
Strong UI/UX team

Cons

The company is bogged down by an overbearing network of bureaucracy. For being a tech company, it is ironically slow to adopt new and forward thinking platforms and standards - their corporate website is a glaring example of this sort of backwards thinking.

Numbers and illusion of company gains are valued more than clear and honest communication with prospects and customers. Expect to have processes ignored and overstepped by management. The company does a good job at squashing any initiative or enthusiasm one would otherwise have for their position.

Advice to Management

Resign. The company needs less of you and more of those in specialized fields.

    I have been working at Bottomline Technologies full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    None what so ever! Oh Yes, if you can say "Yes Sir!" you will be a star.

    Cons

    No Vision or Goals. Very tactical no strategy. Treat workforce like an accordion. The CEO behavior is deplorable.

    Advice to Management

    Understand software development 101 or remove the name "Technologies" from the name.

    I worked at Bottomline Technologies as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great location, co-workers are great!

    Cons

    Culture is purely toxic. Non revenue generating departments such as human resources have way too much influence on the "producers." Too many VP's and not strong enough middle management. Part of that issue is because no one is empowered at BT. The dysfunction here will eventually bring the company crashing down.

    Advice to Management

    Communication must be improved. Since they are organized by product lines and verticals, communication between the silos is non-existent and very frustrating. You might also want to reduce the power in those non-revenue generating departments STAT. To have a VP in software development report to a VP in HR is ludicrous.
