    People are very kind and the work-life balance is highly valued! The culture is supportive and driven without being overbearing.

    Product is a little cumbersome and the growth process of being acquired by Lexmark is not super smooth.

    Pros

    Really great people, some of the best and brightest I've worked with. Very fun place to work, easy to develop great relationships inside and outside of work. The technology is really solid and the company is committed to taking care of customers and providing the support they need to succeed.

    Cons

    I left because I didn't see how I was going to grow into bigger roles. Perceptive didn't have an organized way of developing people for leadership roles and I couldn't see how it The acquisition by Lexmark damped the original culture somewhat, but not as bad as I'd feared.

    Advice to Management

    Do more to grow employees into leadership roles and provide a career path.

    Pros

    Great vacation policy, happy hours, casual environment, you get to know everyone in the building- lots of cross-functional opportunities

    Cons

    Lack of career progression in certain departments, a lot more political than 5 years ago when it was a private company, family fun activities have been eliminated, too many people "own" the same process and don't want to help push change to a process that is broken or needs improving

    Advice to Management

    Don't become another typically "office space" environment. Bring back the things that made the company fun! While you do not have to have extravagant Christmas parties, don't take away all family activities. Replace them with something lower cost. Offer career progression in all departments. Make sure those doing the dirty work are properly recognized.

    Pros

    Pretty good software company to work for in Kansas City. Not sure why there is such a low ranking. Looking around at other software companies in Kansas City I cannot find one that I would rate as high as this company. Sure there could be some improvements but I am satisfied with working here.

    Good work/life balance.
    Flexible Vacation Policy.

    Cons

    Professional Services Policies are a mess

    I have been working at Perceptive Software full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Perceptive has a very relaxed culture. As long as you're getting your work done, they aren't sticklers for the 40 hour week or the 3 weeks of vacation per year thing. It's a work hard play hard atmosphere. Compensation and benefits are also very competitive for the area.

    Cons

    The fun culture seems to be declining since Perceptive was bought by Lexmark. Many of the perks have been slowly disappearing and I'm not quite sure when (or if) that will plateau.

    Pros

    Perceptive Software offers a great work/life balance, fair wage, good management, and plenty of advancement opportunity. It continues to be one of the best places to work in Kansas City.

    Cons

    The culture seems to be melting away little by little ever since being acquired by Lexmark.

    Advice to Management

    Remember where you came from.

    I worked at Perceptive Software as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Culture and values are one of a kind and going to work everyday was like being with family. They have (or had) a wii, dodgeball court, and gym in their corporate office in Shawnee. They were extremely competitive (but good sports) in corporate challenge.

    Cons

    Lexmark is sitting on their culture taking away what they did best. The HR deparment didn't develop fast enough, or wasn't able (poor leadership/management) to meet recuiting needs. Gross amount of KU fans, fairly obnoxious during basketball season. So follow KU sports because you'll be talking about it.
