    Pros

    - I got to work with a lot of smart people
    - Product offerings are well respected in the industry
    - The company does a good job of supporting its employees, you won't want for things that will help you to do your job
    - Office spaces are well appointed
    - Compensation is competitive, benefits were amazing and are moving towards pretty good
    - Even through the closing of an office, management was extremely transparent with employees, gave lots of lead time, and provided generous offers for either reloaction or severance. You'll see a lot of reviews from disgruntled employees about this and they are misleading- Eze treated people fairly

    Cons

    - Lots on instability due to closing offices, spinning up an India office, and a recent sale to a larger fintech company
    - Management has not done a great job steering the ship and overall feels bloated. There was a troubling trend of scrum masters, project managers, and executive managers being hired at the expense of developer hiring. This had a measurable impact on the company's ability to deliver software. Regardless of grand ideas coming from the top, a company needs developers to build software.
    - Like so many other software companies, they preach agile and scrum but in reality practice a bastardized version because they are unwilling give up standard waterfall practices
    - Management constantly moved goal posts and was way too eager to roll out broad sweeping changes on a whim. This left teams feeling off balance and severely handicapped velocity

    Advice to Management

    - Focus on delivering software and enabling teams over deifying process improvement gurus and wagile practitioners

    I worked at Eze Software full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Since the company has recently been sold you should wait and see how this changes but the benefits were excellent. Very competitive insurance costs, stellar 401(k) match (40%), and decent amounts of vacation for experienced employees. Some managers really care about their teams.

    You can make the jobs on the client facing side look really good on a resume so if you need to take a job here that's fine. Just suck it up for a year and then use it to find something better.

    Cons

    Work Life Balance nonexistent, client base is a nightmare to work with (verbally abusive, hostile, etc), career path becomes a dead end after a few years, transferrable skills gained are few, senior management is ludicrously out of touch with reality and therefore terrible decisions are routine and goals are impossible to hit. Raises are designed to roughly keep pace with inflation unless you can get promoted which is entirely tenure based unless you either are terrible at your job or a rock star (like bottom 10% or top 5% of the company and then maybe you'll get promoted 6 months late/ahead of schedule). They will claim this tenure schedule doesn't exist but just ask everyone who gets promoted when they started at Eze and you realize promotions are every 18-24 months for the junior/mid/senior individual contributor jobs.

    Advice to Management

    Pointless, all the Execs that would have known what to do with any advice (except for 1 who I'm sure will be forced out in the next year) are gone.

    Pros

    Free snacks and beer, descent time off

    Cons

    All the positive reviews are from management and HR to pump up their glassdoor rating.

    If you’re considering this place please run and run as fast as you can. Director level management provides no transparency and will straight lie to your face. Pay is below the market average and there is no bonus. There is no such thing as work life balance as the sales team oversells products to clients that they don’t need or can’t accommodate so you are stuck trying to put out fires all day and driving meaningless work that the client will end up cancelling.

    The bottom line is that they under pay, there’s no opportunity for growth or work life balance and no transparency from management. All reasons to AVOID. If you’re interested in fintech, there are plenty of other companies that will provide better opportunities.

    Advice to Management

    Nothing. The ship has already sunken.

    Pros

    Nice location; beer hour on Fridays; attentive managers; opportunities for career growth, and good path to get you there

    Cons

    Little transparency from upper management about changes that involve us; frat bro culture in some departments to varying degrees; few women employees in technical roles, nearly negligible in technical leadership roles; culture is not as lax or "perk" heavy as start ups, probably due to financial nature of product

    Pros

    Excellent benefits and flexibility, able to have a work/life balance.

    Cons

    Recent sale has translated to a lot of uncertainty, low morale and not much in the way of bonuses and promotions. High turnover rate. Not very innovative for workplace technology.
