    I have been working at Gerber Technology full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    They pay money. Some good people in lower level roles.

    Cons

    Many difficult people to work with, especially in upper management. Management is scrambling around asking for last minute updates over weekends and at 3am despite actively getting in the way from lower level employees from doing their jobs (they don’t understand software, and don’t provide much guidance on random feature requests that they seem to draw from a hat. No prioritization or user research). Such an old school, ego driven way of micromanaging employees to the point of indifference. So disorganized, terrible legacy code base. Private equity company is cutting budgets and fluffing up with new features but won’t fund research and development, design, or take the time to fix the messy code base that prevents even small improvements from being made in a timely fashion.

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

    Pros

    Gerber has a strong history in the industry.

    Cons

    The company is owned by venture capitalist company that could care less about it's employees. While the company was founded on innovation and technology, it no longer strives toward the same objectives. Gerber has an old school work environment. Come in at 8, leave at 5 and working from home is highly discouraged. Socialization in the office is limited and management is always watching your every move. Not very much trust between employees and management.

    I worked at Gerber Technology full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Good benefits and pay.

    Cons

    The direct manager of this department is horrible every day is a dice roll as to what you are walking in to attitude wise. the manager does not have a general understanding of what the job entails, belittles their employees and discusses other coworkers issue with you and others. Constantly micro manages and offers no positive suggestions or feedback and in turns questions every move you make. There has been many complaints of this and nothing is ever done either by upper management or human resources. You will not be appreciated in this role, instead you will be the scapegoat in any issues that shall arise, usually out of your control. You will never be able to have sick days, as you will be give the cold shoulder and a huge attitude upon returning. Lastly, don't expect to have any life outside of this job, as this will be frowned upon. Working at home is never an option though you are provided a laptop, and are probably told you can during the interview process given the circumstance, like a sick child, that's just one of the many lies told to get you in the door. There has been a significant turn over in this department due to these issues and many others.

    I have been working at Gerber Technology full-time

    Pros

    There are some good front line employees doing their best under extremely constrained circumstances.

    Cons

    In our group, there is no real leadership (vision and inspiration) only management (command and control). The culture is basically do as you are told. Suggestions and recommendations by employees and even results of engagement surveys seem to be ignored. Employees are disengaged and focused solely on their salary and looking forward to the weekends (even though some managers still send all night/all weekend emails). Most individuals do nothing extra outside of their job specifications. The workload is unfeasible, Team spirit and morale is extremely low. Many individuals want to leave but because of age, location, fear, etc remain. No matter how great a company’s products and/or services may be, if management is dysfunctional, that company will have serious problems. Our 'bad boss' spends their time directing and monitoring employees rather than empowering them. Micromanaging is oppressive, fosters anxiety and creates a high stress work environment. Eventually, employees will become disenchanted and quit to work for another company (a pattern that has been happening).

    Pros

    Current ownership cares about creating a strong company as much as delivering results. The management team is new but working well together and listening to employees.

    Cons

    Change is tough and everyone needs to understand the plan and how they fit into the future of the company.

    I worked at Gerber Technology part-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Gerber working environment was laid back and friendly. The workflow was really good and I like the fact that the processes were very well organized especially the shared online knowledge base.

    Cons

    They ended up outsourcing their help desk to India which caused a few people to lose their jobs.
