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

    Pros

    Many of the people I work with are smart and dedicated.

    Cons

    Management in recent years seems to be making decisions more for owners (PE) than customers, trying to squeeze out unrealistic profit margins in the short term instead of helping customers long term. Company seems to be commoditizing employees and losing what made us special.

    There have been a lot of bad decisions made at the company from the top with little accountability.

    Advice to Management

    Don't neglect your current customers and products while trying to build next gen system. Old products will be around for a long time. Don't lose what made us special. Hint: it was not senior management.

    Pros

    Very smart people with industry leading technology. Good culture overall.

    Get to work with smart people, not only clever but also very responsive in terms of help when going through the learning curve

    New leadership in Cloud Engineering is making a difference

    If you want to learn a lot of cool stuff and work on latest technologies it is a great place to be.

    Cons

    Like any newly launched product it is going through growing pains, but the future looks bright. Adoption of its cloud product is very promising and has a bright future.

    Steep learning curve to understand the C#/.Net stack, but there are plans to move away from this soon.

    Lots of mistakes made and technical debt

    Expanding in India and hiring lots of junior people. This will cause problems in the future

    Advice to Management

    Reduce the number of changes that are happening and let it stabilize. New cloud leadership should continue to motivate and inspire the developers.

    Some teams are doing very well, but that success should be replicated elsewhere. Keep bringing outside help who has experience building web products instead of struggling and making costly mistakes.

    Give shares to all employees so they can be motivated, engaged and share the success of the company

    Pros

    the culture is relaxed and work-life balance is usually good. exec management tries to instill the corporate values and strategic plan relatively often. work can be interesting and challenging if you like the fintech and trading world. company seems to be working towards an ipo relatively soon once products are integrated and new products deemed solid enough.

    Cons

    competitors are getting stronger with offerings. exec management seems transparent with plans, too transparent sometimes with ones that impact us staff. i've noticed a lot of more senior level directors leaving or just disappearing lately. concerning as many of these people were hands on doing good work and are replaced by more management only leaders. the company seems to be centralizing around just a couple core locations now being boston and india.

    Advice to Management

    grow existing staff, don't drive them out or go external so immediately. need more solid hr processes and staff coverage.

    Pros

    Amazing people at the company
    Direct managers listen and care about their teams

    Cons

    Leadership (execs) fail to understand what differentiates the company from competitors (service).

    Terribly communication from the top.

    In ability to adjust on the fly when things go very poorly.

    Lack of listening to client needs.

    Advice to Management

    Start listening to your employees and clients. You can grow and scale the company with out gutting what the company is and moving all the jobs to India.

    I have been working at Eze Software full-time

    Pros

    -- co-workers
    -- tiny remnants of the old culture
    -- learning the industry

    Cons

    -- hasn't been the same since long time CEO left (Tom G back in 2014). Latest, brand new CEO is a nice guy but lacks charisma to lead.
    -- Last CEO (Pete S) and new CEO (Jeff S) are too data and cost driven. We've lost touch with customers, what they want, and what employees want.

    Advice to Management

    I'm not saying go back in time but you've abandoned the lessons that made this company great for so many years (people, culture, client-focused).
