    I have been working at Genscape full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Genscape profiles people who fit a certain mold : work hard, have integrity, work well with others. This means people treat you with respect and there is a lot less friction because of it. The perks of working in the Louisville Office are great: free Sunergos coffee, tea/water/soft drinks/snacks, lunch provided on fridays, a laid back but professional work environment

    Cons

    The office is great but embrace greater flexibility for work from home; within the Technology Organization facilitate greater coordination so that folks get more exposed to a greater swath of the organization.

    I worked at Genscape

    Pros

    Strong Product Managers and Analysts

    Cons

    Favoritism and preference to friends creates an inequality, especially in the sales team when it comes to hire and fire. This practice was favored by the ex CEO of Genscape whose behavior was toxic and unprofessional for employees and clients.

    I have been working at Genscape full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    - Free food and drinks all day every day - That's about it

    Cons

    - Say goodbye to any work life balance - No performance or merit raises - Constant pressure to deliver products that no one uses or cares about - Constant churn - at least half the IT team has left in the last year. People leave and no one is hired to replace them, so you are expected to pick up their work now - Aging infrastructure. Some of the software is 15 years old and still needs to be supported - no time to fix or improve it - Be on support 24 hours a day, 7 days a week! - don't expect to have your weekends off - if any of the 200+ applications or databases go down (maybe 1 customer is complaining), expect your phone to ring at 3AM on Christmas eve. - Incompetent IT management - a combinations of managers that either have no software background, IT experience or no management experience what so ever. - fake scrum teams that use the worst type of agile methodology you will see anywhere in the industry - they still call it agile though - low pay - don't expect a raise or a bonus - constant pressure to deliver new products - but there are no users for these new products - build them anyway, and then watch them not get used, ever. - stress and anxiety through out the organizations - even outside IT. Customers keep dropping out every day. - Rampant cronyism - just make friends with some of the higher ups - no need to get any work done as long as you go along with the bad ideas and claim to be on the side of management - just remember "toe the line and you will be fine" - CEO is terrible and only shows up to events with prepared one-liners and platitudes. Proudly encourages employees to get intoxicated. Provides no answers to tough questions - reads from prepared statements at all meetings and company events. Serves as a puppet for DMGT to communicate instructions to the wider organization. Can't even do that properly - so expect constant competing messages from different parts of the organization - your boss will tell you one thing, then CEO will tell you something else in a meeting and then expect another message from someone else. But if you ask a question, you will receive an even more confusing answer and be labeled a trouble maker. Keeps everyone anxious and stressed.
