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

Pros

- Great training program for up and coming leaders, and an organizational development team that is strarting to redefine how Hyland looks at career development
 - Management who recognizes values and ideas; constant focus on innovation
 - Fast-paced, dynamic work that is challenging; I can immediately see where I am adding value across the company
 - Listens to feedback and closes the loop on improvement items brought up during employee satisfaction surveys

Cons

- By doubling in size over the past 5 years, there are items the company is still working on such as: redundency of data, training such a large amount of new employees, etc.

    I have been working at Hyland full-time

    Pros

    The environment is generally relaxed, dress is casual, schedules in many departments are at least somewhat flexible. A good place to start a career to build experience immediately after college, but not a place for someone with a developed resume.

    Cons

    The pay is generally below average as many other people have stated on here. The actual health benefits and retirement plan are very average, or maybe a little below average. ***Beware: The recruiters are skillful at selling applicants on the "culture & fringe benefits" in order to keep people interested and to avoid having to negotiate salary.*** Also, Hyland like a lot of companies, presents itself in a very positive, almost narcissistic light to the outside world. However, take the hype with a grain of salt. Hyland isn't even close to being in the ranks of Google, Microsoft, Oracle, Cisco, or Apple. It may seem like they are cutting edge at first glance. Dig a little deeper, and you will find a lot of people who have no real professional experience aside from having sat in a desk at Hyland for a number of years. Often times, these same talentless people get promoted just because they put enough time in. They may know internal Hyland procedures well, but their knowledge of the outside business world, how to actually communicate in a professional manner, how to develop process improvements, or evolve past where they are just isn't present. The talent pool here, despite what is said, is not even close to top tier. Several of their VP's never even graduated college. It's not the worst place to work, but at best, it's very mediocre, uninspired, and full of many people just satisfied to collect a paycheck and not really embrace innovation.

    Advice to Management

    Develop a plan to purge management of the freeloaders who don't contribute, actually embrace the change that is so talked about within the organization, and pay a respectable enough salary to attract and keep talent from top corporations & schools. Talented people currently have no strong incentive to stay. The profit sharing is an absolute joke. Reinvest that money to provide better health, or retirement plans.
