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

Pros

Employees are go getters and want to impress and succeed and great benefits

Cons

There is a disconnect between management and employees. There is a desire to be a global company but the knowledge to do it successfully is severely lacking. There is very little sharing of information between employees and groups as people silo information to ensure their job, which causes lots of issues.

Advice to Management

Look through your employee base and find people who have worked for successful and unsuccessful global companies to see what knowledge they can bring to your company so all can succeed.

    I have been working at Bottomline Technologies full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    For the most part the non managerial people are good to work with, however there has been an exodus of good hard working people over the past few years. I can't say the same thing about senior management however. Health insurance is good. Basically if you are a junior level person and want to get some experience and can keep your head down and out of the way of senior management it's not too bad of a place. I wouldn't recommend that anyone stay longer than 5 years (get some experience and get out) or try to climb the ladder unless you are a good yes man and have a talet for stabbing your peers in the back.

    Cons

    The culture is really toxic at the higher levels - you need to constantly watch your back. The company motto is 'With and for each other' which could not be further from the truth. This all really stems from the CEO and flows down so until there is a change at the top I don't see the company culture changing.

    Advice to Management

    The atmosphere is really driving good people away which is too bad - the strength of the company could really be improved if there was a shift towards listening to differing opinions instead of rewarding those who parrot the same ideas senior managment has already decided on.

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

    Pros

    Good community of people, many people often return after leaving. Open office with approachable management. They are market leaders. Company is growing.

    Cons

    Departments don't work together, but often against each other. Synergy would make the company run much smoother.

    Revenue focus sometimes means quality is sacrificed.

    Advice to Management

    Get the departments working together and this will ultimately been much greater success for the company. Make employees feel more valued.
