    I worked at NICE Actimize full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    - Products have real-world implications with impact on millions

    - Fair compensation and good work/life balance.

    Cons

    - Poor culture and communication: Management decisions seem to be made in a vacuum and changed for no reason at all. Poor communication between levels of the company and across teams. Lack of communication also leads to low morale

    - Lack of career development

    - Innovation and investment in the wrong places in the wrong places: Actimize has invented a new style of company happy hours: "PYOB", or "pay for your own beer"

    I have been working at NICE Actimize full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    On the Actimize sales team I immediately have the opportunity to work with world-class prospects and customers, and have the chance to initiate, progress and potentially close real sales opportunities within my first 90 days. Our products are well respected, highly valued and competitively differentiated. Compensation will be fair, or even - dare I say - generous. I'm highly motivated and incentivized.

    Cons

    NICE Actimize isn't for every sales professional. This is truly a role where you must be a self-starter and ready to dive into the deep end quickly. While there are relatively good marketing materials available for self-study, there's not a lot of hand-holding.
    Our company is ready for the shift to SaaS/Cloud and using machine learning/AI, but we're not telling that story clearly so the perception is still that we're only good for big banks (which isn't the case).
    Our company has also improved the time-to-value (i.e. deployment time) of our solutions, but this is another area where overcoming past perceptions can be challenging.

    Advice to Management

    I believe expanding our focus on emerging fintech and alternatives to traditional banking will be key to sustained growth. I also believe that expanding our relationships with partners - both as sales channels and as deployment resources - will be important.

    Pros

    Great benefits, flexible work schedule and great surrounding people.

    Cons

    Be sure to clarify what technologies that you will be using aside from the proprietary environment. Management may want a Java developer but it really only entails maybe a once a year assignment using Java. Be sure to get a good idea of what skills will be needed. I came here to continue my Java career and that has not really happened.

    Pros

    Product leader in many markets. Managers take time to provide constructive feedback. Leadership team is very accessible. Everyone works hard, supports and cares about each other. Good compensation and benefits.

    Cons

    Getting set up with internal systems took longer than expected.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to focus on hiring the right people to reduce turnover, ensure each line of business has adequate support, and aggressive goals set by leadership are met. Provide employees with the tools and systems required to improve effectiveness (I.e. Salesforce, Adobe professional applications, Marketing automation, etc.).

    Pros

    Nice office, nice people

    Cons

    Management is not in touch with employees. It's a very hirerarchial organization. Healthcare costs keep going up every year but they do not give you a salary increase. There is no work life balance. They moved the work to India in our team last year but now we are working longer hours and they have not replaced the people who left in my team. It's a very top down company and management is disconnected from the ground. You contstantly are listening to clients complain about our software but we never fix the issues. They keep telling employees that the company is doing great but there is no investment in people. I would not recommend this organization to people in tech.

    Advice to Management

    Make communication two way. Provide better benefits. Management needs to spend more time with employees. Stop communicating top down. Invest in the employees.
