Pros

The company socials were quite nice and the provided food and drinks while working are very nice. Management are also allowing willing to work on a project with you.

Cons

Very much like a glorified help-desk position. This position was one a step up from starting all conversations with "have you tried plugging it in?" and I have more experience than to have to start out with this.

    Pros

    Perfect environment for back stabbing sociopaths. They do a great job at snowing upper management that things are sunshine and flowers.

    Cons

    Good luck at trying to get anything done without an act of Congress. Hard work is not rewarded, creative thinkers are perceived as a threat. Very toxic work environment.

    Advice to Management

    Don't believe what you are being told is the truth. Just ask customers.

    Pros

    SumTotal has recently acquired and integrated 4 companies which is hard and painful, and explains past reviews. What that means is now is there is amazing opportunities for personal and professional growth and all the painful part of transformation is in the rear view mirror. If you like building and having a direct impact on the business you will love it.

    Cons

    It's like working at a high-growth start-up in some ways, so it's really fun if you like that kind of cadence. Fast decisions, execution-oriented, everyone dives in and works together. If you prefer a large, more structured, slower pace this isn't the place.

    Advice to Management

    Great management team, quality people and really care about the employees. They have complete focus on customer success and growth. Exciting time to be with the company.
