    I have been working at PeopleFluent (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Work from home capability. Few nice people.

    Cons

    Not sure who can find this company so awesome or having a great culture! No work-life balance. No authority to make decisions. A Bullying type atmosphere. Not enough resources. No career growth, found myself still doing the same thing day in and day out despite communicating ideas for improvement to the 4 managers I had through the 3 years I've worked there. Employee retention is an issue. This company is strong in giving bogus titles. Your knowledge, experience, vision won't count. You are only there to execute.

    Advice to Management

    Respect your employees. Without them this company doesn't exit.

    I worked at PeopleFluent full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great technical team and product development group. Options to work remotely, and good health care plan.

    Cons

    Paralysis by analysis. Executive team is so scared of making a bad decision that they put off making any decision at all. As with many growing organizations communication is lost between silos, departments, and product lines. Charles Jones is by far the worst executive on a personal level that I've ever had the displeasure of dealing with at any organization. He belittles staff regularly and has a complete disregard for his employees as individuals or even human beings.

    Advice to Management

    Get a CEO who understands software development and cares about employees. The HR software market desperately needs the expertise found at PeopleFluent, you just need to get some forward thinking leaders who can support and develop employees.

    Pros

    Good pay and decent benefits.

    Cons

    Management doesn't seem to care much about employees.

    Advice to Management

    Learn that employees are one of your biggest assets, and they are not simply drones that can be replaced with other drones when they leave.

    Pros

    Some people are just the best. Somehow PF attracts top talent.

    Cons

    But they sure don't keep it. They just keep hiring marketing people - but for what? You must invest in the product in order to sell or market it.

    Advice to Management

    Take a look at what people are acutally doing there. A lot of poor performers hide out there.

    Pros

    CEO is awesome
    Great People
    Great Products
    Great Customer Support
    Great Analyst reviews
    Product pricing is in line with the current market trends...maybe even a bit on the low side

    Cons

    Absolutely poor Marketing - maybe one or two leads per month....yes per month at best
    This is a Tier 3 company competing in a Tier 1 space against Cornerstone, Oracle, SAP .etc.
    The company has had ultra high attrition.
    The board of directors are micro managers: they track every call, email, appointment in SFDC.....it feels like the company is selling vinyl siding.
    Think carefully about the HR space before you commit your career to it. IT is not an easy sale because it is a cost center LOB.

    Advice to Management

    Focus....100% of your efforts on Marketing (maybe revamp marketing with new blood) and build awareness at the field level. The challenge is to break through the plethora of digital noise in this HR space. Get the act together on implementation service pricing.

    Pros

    There are some great people working here and Jeff Carr has been a strong, positive influence.

    Cons

    Due to merging so many different company cultures together, it lost the feel of a company that cares about it's employees. Heavy turnover.

    Pros

    There is never a lack of work! Keeping busy was easy. Great place to learn the profession of software design, code, deploy.

    Cons

    Having to deal with clients that have just been lied to in the sales process was a challenge. The 'spin' oriented presentation of software features was ultimately destructive. The software is indeed Frankenstein and difficult to use. This is not an organization that builds client relationships based on authentic communication and integrity. Delivery and services during implementations was poor. Clients are often ignored after the sales contract signed.

    Advice to Management

    Find people that can build and retain client trust via sincerity, and people that get things done with integrity.

    Pros

    They have money in the bank to pay their employees well. They offer great healthcare benefits and stock options.

    Cons

    They institute process for the sake of process. They are not well versed in collaborative virtual technology that could benefit their distributed workforce and their bottom line. They have the technology to support fully functional telecommuting teams, but they would rather people drive into the office even when they are part of a distributed team not at the same office.

    Advice to Management

    Be forward thinking. Virtual collaboration is the future. That's the only way you will keep your high performers.
