    I have been working at Proforma full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    As a member of the Owner Advisory Council I have seen first hand how much Proforma leadership truly cares about its owners and support team. This was a very eye opening 3 days. Of course Greg and Vera get lots of deserved kudos. I also want to give a big shout out to Doug Kordel for his leadership of the Cleveland Support Center team. Seems to me that not many great lawyers are also great business leaders like Doug.

    Cons

    It seems to me that if people knew the hard work that went into running Proforma there would be even more appreciation for the support.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up your great leadership. Thanks for the opportunity to get to know you better.

    Proforma is the industry leader in all it does. 5 Star leadership, technology, marketing, back office support.

    Cons

    I wish more support were available until 5PM Pacific Time.

    Advice to Management

    Thank you for the support you do provide during west coast hours.

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

    Pros

    I recently joined our Dallas area office. This has been my best career move ever. The Dallas area team is amazing. So, too is the entire Proforma organization.

    Cons

    I am looking forward to visiting the headquarters someday.

    Advice to Management

    I just want to be sure management knows what a great company we have and how appreciative I am for my new career.

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

    Pros

    The Pros include: The company vision; the business model in a changing industry; the leadership; the location; the people. The new company getting started could be a big plus, too.

    Cons

    We seem to have a few folks here that i wish would quit or get fired. Nothing positive comes from being negative.

    Advice to Management

    A bad apple may not spoil the barrel but it's no fun having any bad apples in the barrel. We have a very few folks that need to get positive or get out.

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

    Pros

    This is the best job I have had. Very supportive leadership. Flexible work environment. Very fun location.

    Cons

    It is frustrating that former employees want to use this site to unfairly and anonymously bash Proforma. You aren't here for a reason. Look in a mirror.

    Advice to Management

    Please keep our offices here. I love the convenience of the coffee shop and restaurants.

    I have been working at Proforma full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    This has been the best week I can recall for Proforma. Everyone in Cleveland really appreciates the time that the technology leadership spent with each of us.

    Cons

    It would be great to do this more often but we understand how busy the technology team is in Tampa.

    Advice to Management

    I have no advice as much as I just want to express appreciation for the time you spent with us.

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

    Pros

    I was reluctant at first to join Proforma. After a great deal of research and talking with the leadership and the people I made the leap. Now, a few years later all I can say is "Wow!". Proforma is far better than I even hoped it would be.

    Cons

    The growth in the support staff and owners is hard to keep up with. Thanks for sending the monthly updates.

    Advice to Management

    Stay focused on the future. Our industry is going to change fast and we are trusting in you to lead the way.

    Pros

    Proforma is a great company with an exciting future. We also LOVE being on Davis Island. The parking is free. There are great restaurants and a coffee shop within walking distance. One block away is a waterfront park.

    Cons

    The offices aren't too fancy but nothing is fancy on Davis Island.

    Advice to Management

    Please do know that we love being on Davis Island.
