    I worked at Imagine Software (More than a year)

    Pros

    Data team is in Cleveland and life is comparatively easy there.

    Cons

    The office in Cleveland is pretty small and you may not get promoted easily.

    Advice to Management

    I think everything is good so far but further work need to be done with the ITS itself

    Pros

    Lower-level workforce are friendly and want to make the company successful, but burn out quickly.

    Cons

    A few of the partners are okay, but the president isn't interested in making it a place where you feel eager to invest your time and energy. As a result, great people fizzle out and seek employment elsewhere.

    I have been working at Imagine Software (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Been working here for four months. Fun working environment. Everyone is friendly and professional; some people are also outgoing, which makes it a pretty exciting office to work in.

    The work is challenging so there was a lot of learning. In addition, there are a lot of collaboration. The work that you do do have an impact so everyone will provide help if you ask.

    The upper management folks are awesome. Even the ones you don't get to work with directly, they will make effort to get to know you.

    Cons

    The hourly pay is low compared to interning at other places. This might be a deal breaker for some people. I got a competing offer but I decided to return because I enjoy working here. I am not looking to get rich from an interning position.

    Pros

    Love the people, love the work environment. Because of this, everyone works diligently and beyond expectations. I am glad to have found a new home.

    Cons

    No permanent work from home options. In this day and age, most employers offer working parents the ability to work remotely 1 or 2 days a week.

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

    Pros

    What I enjoy most is the atmosphere of being in a place that is making an incredibly sophisticated financial product and yet we still laugh everyday. I've been a consultant for most of my adult working career and transitioning to full time employment made me apprehensive. I've learned a lot here, I've made friends, and I honestly enjoy seeing and working with my coworkers everyday. We have great camaraderie and manage to get the job done.

    Cons

    If you're someone that requires a more formal atmosphere to work you wouldn't like it here. Everyone tends to know everyone and is mostly friendly. We work with people around the globe and majority of communication is email/IM/and go to meeting. I almost never use the phone.

    Advice to Management

    I'm not sure I'm qualified enough to tell Mgmt what they should/should not do. For now, I'm happy and it's working.

    Pros

    Imagine is a nice place to work everyday.
    I had good training and was given an opportunity to expand my skill set.
    My manager and colleagues were really nice people, there is an emphasis on hiring people who fit well together, even if they are uniquely different.

    Cons

    The YE bonus situation is a horror show due to lack of communication. Everyone understands that bonuses are contingent on business considerations, but the Partners consistently choose to FAIL at communicating a thoughtful understanding of the employees bonus figures. This situation would be laughable if it weren't so damning to some of the people who depend on YE bonus to help support their families.

    I worked at Imagine Software full-time

    Pros

    * Relaxed office environment
    * Flexible working hours
    * Very casual dress code
    * Decent pay and decent benefits
    * Open door policy
    * Good coworkers (for the most part)

    Cons

    Far too many to mention, but these are the main ones:
    * With only a few exceptions, management is absolutely clueless. Most have their positions due to longevity, not talent
    * Partners don't have the slightest idea how to run a business
    * Most executives are very untrustworthy and have no qualms about throwing their subordinates under the bus to shift blame off themselves.
    * Company is far too focused on making the software it wants to build, not what customers want to buy, yet management is consistently shocked when there is no market for new products.
    * Losing business at an alarming rate to newer, more agile, more intelligent players.
    * Partners and many managers treat clients like an annoyance

    Advice to Management

    Get a clue
    Learn how to run a business
    Try listening to your clients for change
    Get rid of entrenched managers
