    I have been working at Integware full-time

    Pros

    I feel like they always try to do the right thing. That doesn't mean they are mistake free but can be challenged if they are doing something wrong. The people are all great to work with too. The company went completely virtual about 18 months ago and while it was difficult to transition to for some I love working from home or the customers site now.

    Cons

    The size of the company can create venerability. Some projects are hard to win because of perceived risk and when projects end it's difficult to have another project perfectly lined up to start.

    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Integware full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Highly talented people, who are passionate about teamwork and success. A great learning and growth environment. Recognition, rewards and customer focus are also very important aspects of the culture.

    Cons

    It felt overly driven by concepts of integrity and courage, which changed the atmosphere of the culture into one of "being evaluated and tested" to see if you could fit in. This new emphasis shifted the focus of the company from desiring to improve and do well, to must improve and fit in. Militant attitude?

    I have been working at Integware full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    The company provides an environment to grow and learn many aspects of the PLM business. The company operates with open communication and is driven by its core values.

    Cons

    The decreasing size of company was not resolved and more people continued to leave. The lack of a dedicated sales team seems to be hurting the ability to win new business.

  7. "Great place to work for innovative people"

    I have been working at Integware

    Pros

    In reviewing the comments from previous posters, I think it's important to note that the senior management issues that occurred in 2010 and part of 2011 have been completely addressed from my perspective. The management team has been replaced with more experienced and principled persons from the PLM industry. Great vision and success in helping medical device companies and building innovative technologies. Travel requirements are very reasonable for a consulting company. CEO is especially driven, yet thoughtful, caring and constantly looks for ways to improve himself.

    Cons

    Need to spend more time on personnel development and education. Coffee could be a little better but Keg is a great addition

    I worked at Integware

    Pros

    Outstanding talent in the consulting team brought a great market opportunity to Integware. The PLM market is still very strong in med device, and many of those consultants will go on to do great things in the private sector or with other consulting companies.

    Cons

    Unfortunately, the poor execution by the management team spoiled Integware's reputation in the market and broke key business alliances with R&D partners.

    Pros

    Smart employees and strong vision for where Integware needs to be as part of its business transformation. A focus on the most relevant needs for life science manufacturers.

    Cons

    Not enough resources for all of the opportunities being pursued. Employees need to recalibrate their expectations on the level of business travel needed as part of the new company focus.
