    Pros

    Benefits are okay. Paid holidays are nice. New building is nice.

    Cons

    Many of those who have been around for 25 or 30 years have made their way to management, despite lack of education or ability to lead others. This company also has a habit of hiring a lot of people when there is an increase in business, then laying off the new hires when business inevitably slows down. Pay is WAY below industry/area average.

    Advice to Management

    Utilize and appreciate new, young hires. Pay employees what they are worth. Reward hard work and problem-solving.

    Pros

    Nice building / physical work place.
    Nothing much to write about.

    Cons

    Clueless Management Team.
    Unbelievable internal politics at the Executive level especially for those based in US HQ.
    Intergraph PPM looks shiny from the outside, but rotten from the inside.

    Advice to Management

    1. Listen to employees and adapt an open door policy - NOT just open office space!
    2. Admit mistakes - yes it hurts, but company will be much better.
    3. Got your head out of the sand and adapt new technologies - it is good for your own survival!

    I worked at Intergraph PP&M full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great colleagues and flexible time. Amazing new building. Awesome gym with every thing you can think of. Very understanding and open HR department.

    Cons

    As a software engineer, if you want to be micromanaged this is the place for you. Managers over the years have been promoted based on their technical abilities rather than their management skills. This has led to a culture where the old-timers are still involved in every single technical detail which does not allow their new generation of engineers to be creative and innovative. The competitors are always a step ahead and PPM is always catching up. It is a shame because there are great and smart people in this company but upper management antiquated culture does not make this an attractive place to work. Compensation wise, good luck. Medical benefits continue to decline, no merit increases last year, no bonuses for the past 3 to 4 years. Not even a Christmas party!

    Advice to Management

    If you are an executive technical manager or above, stay away from code. You are doing a disservice to this company by not allowing the engineers to be creative and take ownership of their code. The code you wrote 20 years ago comes out of the box with most programming frameworks now.

    Pros

    Great Benefits, Great Office Spaces, Decent Cafeteria, Plenty of Parking, Nice Holiday Packages

    Cons

    Management won’t listen, Overworked and Underpaid Employees, Unfair Pay Genderwise, Not many chances for growth within the company such as moving up

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees. Often times management is busy with so many meetings and plans that they never get to use the products themselves so they come back with an unrealistic idea of a new product implementation or way of doing something which causes stress on the employees to have to bend over backwards and complete the tasking. Many employees work on many teams and projects at one time and aren’t getting paid enough to have to deal with all of that. If you have an open door policy with employees under you, don’t disregard their input on things that can make the process better or ideas to help you become a better manager.

    I worked at Intergraph PP&M as an intern (More than a year)

    Pros

    New building was an exciting environment to be in. Things were definitely changing and it was for the better.

    Cons

    Some of the employees were not happy with their situation, mostly growing pains from the changes.

    Advice to Management

    Find a better place to "hide", the company favors transparency but it can be a bit too much when you see all the managers gather together unexpectedly.
