    I worked at GFI Software full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    It was a great and ambitious company with impressive on-premise software products. A great team and good management. Good benefits and good pay.

    Cons

    Changes in the company strategy, and company culture lead many employees to quit or to leave. Average training provided.

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

    Pros

    Pay is good. A lot of good people. Not the worst managed company I've been with.

    Cons

    A collection of businesses. Not focused. A CEO with a very foul mouth. There are good people, but there are mediocre executives in senior management who never seem to be held accountable.

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

    Pros

    GFI pays ok and the hours are also manageable. The location is outside of Tampa so the commute isn't too bad to get to work.

    Cons

    The place is synonymous with a theatre house. The place is full of drama and it seems nearly no one can keep anything to themselves. It is a small company with little room to move up. Also, to move up you have to be buddies with the higher ups.

    Pros

    It's a job and pays okay.

    Cons

    Big company mentality - you're just a number.

    Advice to Management

    If you treated people better, you wouldn't ALWAYS be hiring.

    I worked at GFI Software full-time

    Pros

    Prior to being bought by last investor, GFI was once a flagship of top working environment, a place to learn, great employees and to invest in a flourishing career. Best times working here.

    Cons

    Relying on most important decisions by a number of same old figure heads to promote and drive the company forward was always a bad decision. This mentality never changed and brought the demise to a once beloved Maltese company.

    Advice to Management

    Please try to give more importance to the employee. An employee is not just a number.

    Pros

    La mutuelle et le CE me paraissaient relativement interessants

    Cons

    GFI ressemble à beaucoup d'autres SSII importantes, par l'effectif, qui ont eu une croissance externe importante tout en conservant une organisation et une gestion de grosse PME

    Advice to Management

    Il faudrait revoir la manière de considérer les collaborateurs (évolution de carrière, salaire, ...) afin de mieux les motiver.
