Pros

Laserfiche is a great place to start a career fresh out of college. You really have an opportunity to hit the ground running and make your own way without a whole lot of training. You will very quickly be working directly with a wide variety of clientele.

Cons

The caveat to the pros is that there really is not a lot of guidance and training for how to do your work. You are expected to churn out results but there isn't particularly good direction on how to get there. The other major problem is that there is a very low ceiling in terms of growth potential. I say get in, work for 2-3 years max and move on.

Advice to Management

Upper management should hire external experts instead of constantly hiring fresh college grads. The college grad network is great for young youthful energy, but we are missing out on vital real industry expertise because everyone in the company is for the most home grown.

    Pros

    Free lunch, recreation rooms, young co-workers.

    Cons

    Large turn overrate as a result of built up frustration with management. They'll never change their style of management and refuse to acknowledge their faults. It's a family business so your words only holds value if you are considered part of the family. Cross department collaboration can be a bit difficult because of such high turn over rate and new co-workers barely starts to learn the technology.

    Advice to Management

    Hopeless.

    Pros

    For junior software engineers, this is definitely one of the best place to get hands-on experience. There are a ton of experienced programmers you can learn from, the workload is challenging, and you will always get a chance to learn new things.

    Cons

    The management do not know how to appreciate their employees. Once you've had a really good year, the management will reward you well the first year with additional responsibilities - but they will continue to expect you to do everything you used to do PLUS your new responsibilities (rinse and repeat every year) until you cannot handle the workload anymore.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to appreciate what your people can do. If you're going to promote someone, have someone else to replace that individual's former responsibilities instead of expecting that one person to be able to do everything.
