    I have been working at HighJump full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    The remaining HJ and TC employees who actually care about the company....and they are the ones who are delivering positive results.

    Cons

    The Assellos leadership team is ridiculous and simply chasing the next liquidity event. Best of luck to you all and I'm sorry for those who haven't left yet.

    Advice to Management

    Karma is real.

    Pros

    Great people to work with! The Bloomington office space is very nice with lots of amenities. Great benefits (lots of health care options, matched 401k, good vacation time, etc..)

    Cons

    Executive management has a strong desire to grow the company revenue purely thru acquisition and is not interested in organic growth.

    Advice to Management

    the general feeling in the cubes is that the current executive management is more interested in their own personal profits than they are about the employees. Prior to the Accellos acquisition HighJump had a pretty generous bonus plan for employees based on company profitability. That went away. Its just one thing that indicates the execs don't care as much about the cube dwellers.

    Pros

    - Awesome company culture
    - Great people to work with in a relaxed environment
    - Amazing flexibility with regard to working remotely when the need arises
    - Excellent compensation / benefits
    - Kind, approachable upper management
    - Continuous growth and expansion across the entire company

    All around great company and great people.

    Cons

    This box requires you to type 20 words minimum in order to submit the review. I honestly do not have any cons. :)

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing exactly what you're doing. Senior management at HighJump is second to none and the executives are some of the nicest people I've ever met.

    I worked at HighJump full-time

    Pros

    Flexible schedule, sort of. If you try to "flex" your schedule, you'll be expected to pick up more hours in the day or on weekends. Look at 45+ hours as regular. Usually 50+ or more. If you're salary, the more hours you'll see.
    Some of the benefits are decent.

    Cons

    Read every single review that has 3 stars or less (lookup Accellos too). They are all accurate. You can double your pay by going just about anywhere else. No training at all. No procedures are in writing, and you'll get blamed for anything that goes wrong. Everyone is terrified of putting anything in writing so they won't get fired for being wrong. Top heavy with "management" and family members highly political with retribution for those who speak up. Absolutely no hires within the company unless you're a white male and can crony up to the top bosses. The position you're hired into is where you'll stay. If you have no ambitions and want a cubicle to keep you're head down in, then this is the company for you. If they're still around in 5 years.

    Advice to Management

    Stop worrying about adding more companies to the mix till you get everything inside straight. Get rid of the overpaid yes men, and start paying the people who are actually keeping you up and running better. You're loosing you're best workers because of nonsense that's allowed to go on. Pull your heads out of the sand and start paying attention to turn over rates, and get rid of the real issues. Stop allowing management to give sub-par reviews to cover they're own backsides.

    I have been working at HighJump full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Some positions are remote. Good teamwork. The CEO seems like a cool guy. The IT group rocks it.

    Cons

    Very disorganized despite their being a LOT of managers. Not enough actual workers to do the work. Layoffs every year, no new hires, so more work heaped onto anyone left behind. No opportunity for career advancement or wage increase. The best people have already or are trying to jump ship. Amazingly lacking in standards, inefficiencies across all Product/Project Mgmt/Customer Service areas. Pretty low tech for a software company. Good reviews posted here are probably HR or marketing staff (they use !!! excessively as in "I love my job!")

    Advice to Management

    Customers deserve better. Stop buying/selling/tearing apart software companies and get back to good Product Design and Development, and Customer-focused services.

    Pros

    Dynamic environment, good customers but they are mostly naïve and end up in contracts that sales pushed, most consultants in professional services are green

    Cons

    Poor decisions by mgmt, hopefully Merger will shake out toxic managers, unprofessional to clients and employees, ethics are questionable, stay away

    Advice to Management

    Exec level needs to review who is watching the hen house
