    Pros

    Wonderful team environment, leadership is strong and they are truly a company who cares.

    Cons

    Pay in FA processing not that high.

    Advice to Management

    Setting the starting salary at a more competitive wage. Other than that, none- because they are angels compared to other companies!

    Great company. Easy going. Management treats you like a human being not another number working for them.

    Cons

    None thus far. Everything is pretty great.

    I worked at Fame full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Cool & interesting co-workers, company tries to keep departments on the same page and does little fun events each month to keep employees engaged.

    Other departments are willing to help you lean about products and their procedures.

    Cons

    Redundant work load.

    Team lead will train and review the work of new hires but if that team lead's understanding is wrong management will not correct them & will allow them to continue to train new hires. As a result, when another QC reviews the work, the error rate is extremely high and the same work has to be done 2-3 times before it is correct.

    Pay isn't so great, increases are seldom and very little, and cash bonuses are small and heavily taxed anyway. Benefit premiums are not discounted, same as if you pay as an individual.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure team leads have a firm understanding before allowing them to train new hires.

    Pros

    Nice people. Well known in the industry.

    Cons

    When they say they have hundreds of installs of their enterprise product that means they have installed it but not sold it. They sold me on a bill of goods to sell a product that was not ready for prime time and then they didnt even bother to tell me they had countless returns and virtually no referenceable accounts except for their smaller product for hair salon schools. They have their sales reps dialing for dollars instead of providing marketing to generate incoming calls. They use CRM like an address book and when you try to use it the correct way to log calls etc they would tell you to do it the wrong way because that is the way they have always done it. I do not suggest this company unless you are ok with treading water and making one of the lowest income packages in the software business.

    Advice to Management

    Don't expect miracles when your product isn't ready, your marketing for new product is non existent and you pay your sales team such a low package that the day they start at Fame they need to get a second job instead of focusing on the task at hand. Dollar wise and Pound foolish...

    I worked at Fame full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    People collaborate across all departments. This wasn't always the case. Many changes in the last year have invigorated the culture - new skills are being brought in all departments that work well with those possessing the knowledge in a very specific industry. Products being developed are finally going in the right direction - the leadership in IT is much improved.

    Cons

    Still some leadership at the top that needs to be changed. Continue to do what they've done for 30+ years - not progressive enough. Top leadership is out of touch with current technology or methods a lot of micromanagement.

    Advice to Management

    Top leadership needs to go to management training, need to get up to speed on technology. Stop micromanaging and let the good people that are in place do their job - the company will be much more successful than having two outdated people trying to run it all.
