      Pros

      a lot of free food, good benefits

      Cons

      Gordian used to be an outstanding company, but once the founders retired and/or sold out, everything changed. Became just another job at just another company.

      Pros

      -There are still a few good people here (for now) -Office space is above-average and in a decent area -Free food and culturally-diverse celebrations -Casual work environment -Post-Fortive world can teach you how NOT to treat people, which will come in handy later

      Cons

      -Gordian experienced meteoric growth for many years while PE-owned (most recently Warburg Pincus.) It was purchased by manufacturing conglomerate, Fortive, in late 2018. Fortive was a spin-off of Danaher's most unattractive, lowest technology, low-growth holdings. They're focused on buying growth to generate Wall Street favor and cash flow for additional, more attractive acquisitions. This is not good news for technology companies (Accruent & Gordian) who now become... manufacturers? -Fortive is a paper tiger. They tout FBS as "the way." If so, why do your "enlightened" operating companies struggle for low single digit growth? Fact is, they buy innovators and turn them into factories. BS doesn't stand for "Business System," but something slightly warmer and rancid *wink, wink.* It's a hodge podge of generic tools (eg Problem Solving and Value Stream Mapping,) that most large companies use, but not in place of innovation and good leadership. General Electric mastered all of these. Worked well for them.... -Most of Gordian's senior leadership has departed in the the last 12 months. (Hint, hint.) This includes those responsible for growth, interdepartmental diplomacy, and innovative leadership. Those who remain are absent or have been forced to drink from the magic punchbowl. Charts and metrics now matter more than people. Every day is an episode of the Hunger Games for those who've decided not to dust off their resumes -Everyone's now "overhead." Here comes the cost-crunch, folks. Hey, about that bonus... So, that's the OLD commission structure... Here are your new goals. They're slightly more STRETTCCHHH 2% is very good The red on chart 12 of 27 is troubling to us

      Pros

      None anymore. There is not enough free food or soda in this world to make up for this culture/work environment shift.

      Cons

      This was the best place I had ever worked, until new leadership took over and made it the worst. Departments do not communicate at all. New hires are made based on cost (IT outsourcing) or whose friend you are. The company used to care about your work/life balance and had a great sense of family. We worked hard and looked out for one another. Avoid at all costs...

      Pros

      Monthly free food. Good co-workers

      Cons

      awful management. after hiring two others, I got laid off after just under 2 years. This company does not care for the employees; just the bottom line.

      Pros

      Lots of free food leftover from all of the meetings Great Coworkers Lots of very smart people Convenient location

      Cons

      All of the founders have been pushed out, and Indian management has been brought in. Management doesn't care about your personal or professional growth. Management threatens and lies to motivate employees. Management doesn't listen to senior people.
