      Pros

      If you’re considering suicide, working here will help you make up your mind.

      Cons

      Management does the complete opposite of management. If you have an opinion, best keep it to yourself because if you are not on the same page as your management, you are a cancer that will be cut out. The organization does not innovate at all the and the software is generations behind. This company will continue to live off of maintenance dollars and will never be a leader in the space. Starting out this may be a good option since management literally lives and breathes down your neck with constant direction, but as you progress and grow forget about having your management grow with you, they will constantly baby you and never adapt. This company is the literal definition of adapt or die, surprised it has not died yet. The workforce is multiple gereations of insestual lineage that keep getting hired because mommy and daddy know people. If you ever have the misfortune of working in one of the offices that's not Santa Barbara, you might as well start to pay for counseling as they are the most depressing places to work.

      Pros

      QAD is a very inclusive and employee-centric organization. It is a great environment to work in and develop your professional skills. Onboarding is very thorough and you truly have all of the tools you need to be successful in the organization.

      Cons

      Due to the pandemic, it has been difficult to really appropriate the culture of the organization face to face, but with that said everyone is very helpful and doors are quite open.

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      QAD stresses "empathy" for how we interact with customers and co-workers, and it creates a wonderful culture of happy employees and customers. It starts with the founder (Pam) and CEO (Anton) and permeates the org. Company has a "start up" feel with respect to innovation, but mature and seasoned software people to keep the ship on course.

      Cons

      Product positioning is complex, and it can take time to learn if you don't have a background in ERP, Supply Chain Planning, Transportation Execution or Global Trade Management.

      Global Program Director, Talent Acquisition

      Thanks for your review and great feedback on the product positioning and the time it takes to learn the product. One of the key focuses I have heard from our leaders is better onboarding and helping new sales employees get to productivity quicker. Addressing the product complexities will definitely be a part of this.
