    I have been working at Litera Microsystems full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Very cool culture; Good amount of diversity in age and race; Continuous development opportunities from management; Incredible talent to be inspired by and technical skill to learn from; Lots of variety and dynamism in your day to day activities; Plenty of room for creative thinking/ solutions which are recognized and rewarded for by management; As an outsider it seems like a niche industry, but it is extensive and ever growing; Constant room for lateral and vertical career moves; Initiative and pro-activity is rewarded.

    Cons

    Challenging KPI's; Initial learning curve requires patience to overcome; Non-performers are weeded out (also a pro).

    Advice to Management

    Continue rewarding high performers; Be watchful that new opportunities are presented equally and transparently to the organization; Keep listening to the individuals who have invested in growing the company.

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

    Pros

    Awesome downtown office on the river; Beer, ping-pong, and open concept; Great people; Blend of younger and older professionals who care; Tons of room for growth as the company grows and expands; Legal market, in particular, is a great market that is growing and changing as they embrace technology and efficiency; Fair compensation; Great benefits; Leadership cares about its employees; Flexible work schedules and no time micro-management

    Cons

    Very aggressive goals and targets due to acquisitions and the PE culture; Communication isn't always stellar from the top down; Tends to be a fail-fast culture, which is good for the company and its current employees, but if you aren't a good fit it is best for all parties to find a different role in the company or a different place to be successful (not necessarily a con, I suppose); While not a "punch the clock" culture, expect to work in a demanding environment. Excellence is expected!

    Advice to Management

    Continue to stress communication and transparency; Don't grow too fast and forget about the people that make it happen; Continue to promote from within!

    I have been working at Litera Microsystems full-time

    Pros

    The organization has been going through a lot of recent changes but management does a great job at being transparent and keeping us in the loop. Seeing the many changes and promotions within the organization shows that work hard does get rewarded!

    - Open friendly work environment
    - Great benefits, work life balance, generous PTO Policy, flexibility

    Cons

    Company is growing/moving rapidly. If you are not up for constant change and challenges, this can be viewed as a con.

    Advice to Management

    Keep being transparent and keep growing!

    I have been working at Litera Microsystems full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - Great management/ executive team that is transparent
    - Employees are all extremely talented and bright
    - Culture that is motivating, fun and open
    - Hard work is recognized and rewarded regularly
    - Good work/ life balance
    - Affordable benefits
    - You are given an opportunity to take on a lot of responsibility and ownership of your work/department

    Cons

    - There are natural growing pains, but the fact that they are so open about these challenges and address them head on helps overcome those.
    - There are virtual team so this does require you to be able to manage your own workload and be flexible working with others in different time zones.

    Advice to Management

    Management is great, but I would just keep in mind that all strategies may not continue to work as the company continues to grow. Start thinking of solutions that are scalable.

    I have been working at Litera Microsystems full-time

    Pros

    - Strong leadership, not only at the executive level but also from middle -
    managers.
    - Very focused on client relationships and support.
    - Strong internal communication.
    - Extremely fun work environment.
    - Acceptable work-life balance.
    - Good benefits.
    - Excellent career opportunities due to strong growth.

    Cons

    - Even with strong internal communication, mergers are hard, and some things take longer than acceptable to be accomplished.

    - The culture has been impacted by the merger, no one knows what the new company culture looks like yet.

    Advice to Management

    Don't stop working to make a better organization.

    I have been working at Litera Microsystems full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I've been at the company for just over three years and seen it go through a number of mergers - with each the company has evolved and gotten better.

    Cons

    There's more than normal amount of self management for remote employees (in certain offices), but the company does communicate this openly (and it's improved over the years)

    Advice to Management

    Bear the company culture in mind (which is great) as the company grows.

    I have been working at Litera Microsystems full-time

    Pros

    This company has undergone a lot of change and growth in the last couple of years, and they do not seem to be slowing down anytime soon. This is a great company for someone just starting in their career due to the number of internal transitions and career growth opportunities, or someone midway through their career that wants to continue to grow and have more influence in the organization.

    Cons

    If you are not open to change, this would be a tough organization for you to join. All of the change since I have been with the company has been very positive, but there is constant change.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to be transparent in your communication.

    Beer. That's it.

    Cons

    A complete mess of a merger, people in leadership roles that should not be.

    Advice to Management

    Just give a head's up when you're going to sell the company (because we all know you will in a few years) since everything else is completely secret.
