    Global business footprint, good compensation and benefits, large customer base, solutions that can deliver large value

    Legacy products and technologies with a myriad of platforms and mounting technology debt, growing gap between the rhetoric vs reality as it relates to innovation, very weak professional services team, attrition and churn in executive leadership

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Benefits were good. The people I worked with were great. This used to be great place. Nothing much else to say except remember the days when Mr. Armstrong ran the company.

    Cons

    All jobs are being outsourced to India. In its heyday the company had over 800 employees at its HQ. Now only 100 or so remain. All works gone to India!!

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your US employees. Don’t fly out people for professional service engagements from India. Create some jobs in the country where the majority of your revenue comes from.

    Pros

    The best people I have ever worked with. Very good salaries and bonuses.

    Cons

    Decisions from high up became only about the money; not about the customers or the employees. Jobs went from US based to overseas.

    Pros

    Nice people
    Can be a good salary if you've negotiated well.

    Cons

    For some departments there is a very low glass ceiling
    Too much senior management. Never seen a company with 5 levels of executive.

    Advice to Management

    Start promoting internally more rather than always hiring externally.

    Pros

    Good pay. Some benefits good, some just fair. Depending on what department you get into, it can be a great experience.

    Cons

    Senior management is capricious - they seem to want to make changes every 18 months to justify their existence. They've jettisoned a lot of senior talent to hire cheap junior developers overseas, who often don't stay around after they've become useful
