    I have been working at Plex Systems, Inc. full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Transparent leadership, a commitment to DEI, ample growth opportunities, self-accountability, a continuous improvement culture, and reputable software products that makes team members proud to work at Plex Systems.

    Cons

    We are not quite a household name (yet) and going through some "growing pains", albeit typical of a growing software org with a lot of tenure.

    I worked at Plex Systems, Inc. full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Unlimited time off, complimentary snacks and drinks, decent salary.

    Cons

    The great corporate culture and the amazing people Plex once had were run out of town by a change in management. The new climate is one of micromanagement, second-guessing and frustration. Fun corporate group events are now things of the past (MLB games, parking lot cookouts, holiday parties at the Henry Ford). Some new executives come off as condescending, and their disdain for heritage employees is palpable. Some possesses as much personality as Bill Belichick.

    Pros

    The customers were great. I came from small manufacturing, and the community was very terrific.

    Cons

    Regular turnover of talent. Management was made up of friends from past work. People are just a number. Nobody matters.

    "Top heavy management chain of mostly B players. CEO is well aware of the problems but is taking his time to react."

    Pros

    Best and brightest workforce. Great culture that’s resilient.

    Cons

    Some top level leaders have little respect for anything that predates them. In case of my department specifically (product), people leading it often hold their nose when they talk about the PMC. It’s rather obvious to the workforce that the next big thing is the ONLY thing they are interested in.

    I have been working at Plex Systems, Inc. full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Generous time off policy, free snacks and drink, massage chairs, talented individual contributors, some great talent

    Cons

    Things are changing very rapidly and not effectively. There’s a lot more rigidity in terms of working hours - a lot of focus on quantity vs quality. They want behinds in seats vs observing the quality of work being produced. This is how old leadership differs from new leadership. Things feel to be going backwards. We are no longer this innovative, progressive software company that we used to be. Also, leadership seems to hold their cards close to their chest vs being open from the top down. It’s affecting productivity and ultimately hurting our customers. People are unhappy and disgruntled for the most part. Things are tense and it isn’t a pleasant or invigorating work environment anymore. Too top heavy. Leadership makes decisions by dictating vs collaborative and open.
