    Pros

    This company is a SALES person's best friend. They value sales, and have exceptional pay. The ability to make top 1% kind of money. You have to work for it

    Cons

    401k is a joke, 5 cents on the dollar is not good.

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

    Pros

    Get to work from home one day a week and pick start and end hours. Honestly there isn’t much that is good about this place other than that.

    Cons

    Made a poor attempt at company culture by adding some furniture and hanging a couple posters. Poor pay, bad curriculum management, and benefits are horrible. Quickly becoming a corporate environment that could care less about their employees.

    I worked at Glynlyon full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Loved the people I worked with. The Odysseyware product is very impressive!

    Cons

    Management is too mom and pop and doesn't think about what will be needed in 6 months, 12 months, 2 years, etc. Pay is very low. Job descriptions change on the whim of management. Management plays far to many favorites. A Christian based company that would rather send funds and supplies overseas, but has no sympathy for employees.

    I have been working at Glynlyon full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I’ve worked at Glynlyon for just under a year and could not be happier in my position. The company offers a competitive wage, benefits including newly increased vacation time and a positive working environment.
    My professional talents are used in way that both challenge me intellectually as well as benefit the company. There is a great sense of teamwork here with employees who have a great work ethic and enjoyable to be around. Management is fully engaged in all departments, making employees feel valued and appreciated.

    Cons

    I have no complaints about this company.

    stop being so greedy and exploitative

    I have been working at Glynlyon full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Salary can very based on experience. You get your own desk and work area. The tech side is Agile. Benefits are given at the first of the month.

    Cons

    Benefits are incredibly weak. Paid time off is minimal, 2 weeks a year for the first 5 years. 401k is a joke with a 5% match which you don't get to keep unless you have been there a while. (The company match is 5¢ for every $1 you contribute.) Health and dental benefits are mediocre at best. The company shows no interest in valuing it's employees. Firings can happen at random. They can be somewhat cheap with there equipment, such as cheap computers. High turn over and long hours.

    Advice to Management

    Show better respect to their employees by including better benefits and time off.

    I worked at Glynlyon part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Extremely flexible position, dress code was very lenient, employees were very nice on a personal level once you got to know everyone. Company seems to do good work for schools implementing their software. Company was bought in January 2016 and things are changing, but ever so slowly. Good place to start, not a good place to grow.

    Cons

    Part time positions are few and are not eligible for benefits, including small bonus at end of year although full time employees who were there less than a month were eligible. Not much room to grow from and HR Assistant. Health benefits are expensive and the 401K match is 5 cents on the dollar!! LOTS and LOTS of turnaround. No communication throughout company and HR doesn't try to make it better.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate, Trust and Grow. The CEO needs to be more involved with other departments not just sales. HR is not valued here at all. Need a better culture at Glynlyon, get some help. Involve your employees, introduce other departments to each other. Promote within the company, talk to your employees. I repeat...Change the culture.

    I have been working at Glynlyon full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Fun people, flexible schedule. Good product to sell. Compensation is decent. Current management seem committed to establishing better work flow and increasing resources & training for employee success.

    Cons

    Company has historically not valued employees and will fire/lay them off at random. Frequent direction changes make it hard to know what the company focus is. Benefits are not great & very expensive. Very little PTO and it takes 5 years to get any more. Sales people often do not have the resources they need to be successful, including a lack of marketing.

    Advice to Management

    Value your employees and invest in them instead of constantly starting over with new people.

    Pros

    Flexible schedule, great co-workers, good product, good location, nice office space

    Cons

    There were always surprise firings and a complete lack of job security. Top management lives in separate parts of the country and doesn't care to get to know it's employees. Whenever they came into town, you were afraid of another round of firings which is what usually happened. They didn't listen to their employees or what those on the front lines with customers had to say.

    Pros

    Great people to work with - from Iowa to Arizona. There are many project and changes constantly going on.

    Cons

    One of the cons is that there are so many projects and changes going on, we wonder if ideas are thought out well, ahead of time or is it knee-jerk reaction.

    Advice to Management
