    I worked at Encore Software full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Opportunity to learn by picking up the slack, nice office space

    Cons

    Management rewards the big talkers and thinkers but not the ones executing; doesn't promote work/life balance; salaries don't match skill levels

    Advice to Management

    Take a closer look at who really brings value to the company and promote accordingly; cultivate talent; set a clear path for company growth

    Pros

    Coworkers are wonderful. Love working with geriatric population. Each building is different as they are a contract rehab company.

    Cons

    90% productivity demands. High stress. No yearly review or raises. Poor senior management. Threatening policies in place. Unsupportive of therapy staff. Gave everyone a 2% paycut and took away PTO. They don't provide needed equipment, the SNFs must pay for it.

    Advice to Management

    Establish fair and honest policies. Reward workers.

    Pros

    fair benefits some good management

    Cons

    pay scale not up to scale. Care more for the employees that have been with them for a long time and do what you can to keep them instead of laying them off or telling them they have to take a $20k pay decrease

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees and make changes to better benefit company and employees

    Pros

    I enjoyed the work environment and some of the folks I worked with. We had a nice office over by LAX which was fun to work at. The pay was okay but management was stiff and stodgy about benefits, time off, etc.

    Cons

    Management was poor and there was no room for growth in this dying business. Our games were average at best and there was absolutely no motivation to innovate. Basically a software sweatshop developing stuff no one buys from stores anymore. Imagine that????

    Advice to Management

    Be honest with your employees about the business, your mistakes and the problems. Quit delegating and start performing. Adapt to change and embrace new ideas instead of towing the corporate line leaving the employees to hang at the end.

    Pros

    You get paid to do your job. You have a job which many don't have. You can work hard and be rewarded with a layoff. Thank you CM & Encore.

    Cons

    Senior management was lazy and I feel we were underpaid and overworked during my time with the company. Cal Morrell is not someone I would work with or under again. He was incompetent and many felt he failed to do his job properly which is why I think we got laid off. His poor judgement caused many problems for us and eventually led to job losses while he walked away golden. I really thought Encore was a great place to be when I started but my job was eliminated along with many others. I blame management's incompetence for all of it and hope the new team does a better job.

    Advice to Management

    Perception isn't always reality and I think many employees were treated unfairly when the axe came down. I hope those who still have a job do well but I fear many will eventually lose their positions as the company consolidates. Treat those still working with respect and give them opportunities for growth. CM never gave us much more than lip service.
