Negative Outlook

I have been working at Bridgeway Software full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

Family oriented, privately owned, career growth opportunities, employee focused culture, innovative leadership (CEO),

Cons

Slow to change direction to keep up with market pace, roadmap development often delayed, products kept in production too long, salaries well below industry average, no departmental alignment with other departments, corporate strategies and/or corporate initiatives. No formal training or orientation in place.

Advice to Management

Keep development schedule on target and moving with the pace of the industry and advancement of supporting technology and software applications. Bridgeway has consistently been years behind the supporting technology and software applications and subsequently the faster moving competition. Corporate strategies are a necessity, however decide on one that is viable, proven and effective. Blue Ocean and LDO are the latest of two corporate strategies that have and will require significant investment with seemingly little to no return. The company suffers significant losses and market share by aggressively adopting strategies that are unproven and unsuccessful. My advice would be to thoroughly test strategies in the open market before fully investing resources and dollars.

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Bridgeway Software full-time

    Pros

    Some of the nicest people I have ever worked with.
    Recently renovated office.
    Very interesting work.
    Plenty of opportunities to learn.

    Cons

    Decent pay, however it is arbitrary. You could easily be making much less than peers with less experience.
    Not staffed to handle the work load.
    Pay raises and bonuses (non-existent) are few and far between, even for top performers.
    Owners and President of company are not in touch with reality.
    No chance for advancement.
    There is no real plan for turning the business around. They think the next product release will resolve everything.

    Advice to Management

    You hire experts to write your code, do the work, and manage your departments, so you should actually listen to them when they present new ideas and request resources.


  2. "Great Synergy !"

    Pros

    Wonderful working environment; excellent cooperation between mgmt and employees. Mgmt is supportive of innovation and new markets. Would love to work there again!

    Cons

    Location could be an issue during rainy / bad weather.

    Advice to Management

    Relocate to area of less traffic congestion. Continue to support the mgmt and employee relationship with open communication; listen to the employees [not just marketing group] for new ideas and markets.
