    I worked at PROS full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    If you've got limited experience in tech PROS is a good place to spend a few years.
    Very liberal travel and expense policy - no one questions anything in advance.
    Always lots to eat! People consistently schedule meetings around lunchtime so they can order out (with PROS picking up the tab).

    Cons

    Typical software sales cycles take more than one year (something that isn't explained to AE's before they're hired). On the other hand management doesn't give a hoot about cost of sales. Need to fly people in for multiple meetings that could be handled over the phone? Not a problem - no one keeps track of costs (eventually Wall Street will figure this out).

    Advice to Management

    Start running the place like a real business - get expenses under control.
    There are a couple of key people on the upper management team who don't have a clue. Get rid of them!
    Give up on the over-engineered CPQ solution and focus on the company's only real differentiating strength: price optimization & guidance.

    Pros

    Close to downtown and restaurants. Near to metro strop.

    Cons

    Zero investment and focus on employee learning and growth.
    No good management.
    Innovation is long dead.
    Chinese factory working conditions on US soil.
    Very less suffocating office space compared to the number of employees.
    They pay pennies
    No respect for equality

    Advice to Management

    Do not try to convert USA to China for your profits.

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

    Pros

    Good salary(if you are a permanent citizen)
    Liberal with Work from home (see cons)
    Getting to work with some of the best technical ones(i worked at several places before)
    Getting to work in the latest technology and software out there
    Feedback is well appreciated
    Parking is free. Come early though to get a parking under the roof
    Snacks fruits and soda are free
    Good company to settle down with working partner
    Health insurance is far lesser than what you pay at other so called big companies
    There are very helpful and technical people. You have to identify and get the help from them

    Cons

    If you are an immigrant you will be paid much lower.
    And don't forget this company has too many levels and they don't easily promote if you aren't good in socializing and political games.
    Beware : QA team has too many ladies playing loud mouth that are supported by people speaking same language and zero technical skills but who have the capability to put you in bad light
    If you ask for help from a wrong person you will be doomed and dusted across teams :p
    Work from home is available based on your rapport with manager and management and not the need. I was denied permission to work for less than a month while some are working years together from home(ohh they aren't the best in class)
    If you are not good in estimating task time , socialize but do a lot of work this isn't a place for you. You will be cornered, look down upon or worse won't grow beyond senior or lead.
    All in all this place is good for getting your skills updated and not for people who do work. It's a great place if you can organize and delegate stuff. You are the best fit

    Advice to Management

    If someone's not doing well change their team and see if he/she is the same. Your opinion(given by leads or scrum master) based review system is super biased. You can't decide manager material because he/she isn't good with one or two skills. Instead you should have training to improve those missing skills-technical/language/managerial/time management.
    Do something about the enormous amount of meetings that take up some resources time.

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

    Pros

    PROS is filled with individuals who are innovative and insightful, with indefinitely good spirits. In my working experience, I have not known a company with 1000+ people that is able to work so fluidly. Management understands their part in the company as a whole and is able to meet company values 100%

    Cons

    Some issues with employee expenses being unreasonably regulated

    Advice to Management

    I really enjoy the friendly atmosphere here. I think it is the most important part of the culture here

    Great place to grow. I wouldn't mind coming back if there was an available position.

    Since I've left, I know the company has gone through a lot of changes, but I believe it was for the better.
