    "Fast paced, with lots of daily challenges and opportunities to move outside of "your box""

    Pros

    Radiant is a large company with a small company mentality. Not a lot of structure for individual jobs - you'll love it if you like freedom to make improvements where you see fit, you'll hate it if you need a lot of structure and direction.

    Cons

    Very hard to promote within this company. Leadership is a very tight knit group, and like many other companies, it's who you know more than what you do that gets you promoted.

    Advice to Management

    Continuously seek out opportunities to make Radiant the best place to work - not just strive to be on par with other companies.

    Pros

    The people, pay and benifits.

    Cons

    Customer whining and technical challenges within

    Advice to Management

    Give praise more often

  3. "Not a terrible place, could be better"

    Pros

    Time off is good, not tons of overtime is required. Direct management is willing to be flexible with work schedule. Some working from home is allowed.

    Cons

    Salary is low after working there for many years, but that may be common for other places as well too.

    Advice to Management

    Keep your employees up to market on their salaries, even if they have been with the company for years. Deadlines should have developer input before being set.

    "Overall a good place to work"

    • Career Opportunities
    • Comp & Benefits
    • Senior Management
    Current Employee - Client Support Technician in Dallas, TX
    Current Employee - Client Support Technician in Dallas, TX
    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Always challenging
    Never boring
    Most ideas are considered
    Management tries to fit the best person for the job when promoting

    Cons

    The downside of the above happens when you get a little seniority and the guy who just stepped in the door is promoted ahead of you.

    Advice to Management

    Be a little more transparent in your promotions.
    How are employees supposed to know what to strive for if we don't know why people are chosen for projects, promotions, etc

    Pros

    Limited responsibilities, not asked to work overtime, predictable schedules, some opportunities for career growth and decent communication with peers and management.

    Cons

    Company seems a bit stagnant and stock is not much of an incentive. Not a lot of innovative thinking taking place.

    Advice to Management

    Find a way to expand growth beyond the same model that has been out there for 15 years so that shareholders can reap some benefits and provide the capital needed to invest in innovative technology.

    "Good place to start"

    Pros

    Great people to work with
     Relaxed atmosphere
     Good place to start straight out of college
     Extra effort is recognized and rewarded

    Cons

    Extra effort is rewarded up to a point
    Work can sometimes be dull-you have to find your own interesting projects
     Executive team sometimes makes poor decisions
    Morale currently low

    Advice to Management

    Don't tell us how hard it is to cut raises when you take a large bonus.
     The impact of a slowdown should be felt at the top too.
     Do something about morale, not just talk about it.

    "Great Work-Life Balance, Bad Compensation"

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    The people developers work with are intelligent and friendly. I've made a lot of good friends here. My team lead is supportive and a friend. People are open and almost always willing to help. Management rarely asks more than they should and I've never had trouble asking for time off.

    Cons

    When you start, you better negotiate your salary really well because raises aren't good even when the economy is booming. A regular (non-promotion) raise is between up to 3% for a strong employee. A strong is 3 out of 4 in reviews, 2s are most common and 4s are extremely rare.

    Advice to Management

    If you ask your employees to go without raises, don't issue large bonuses to executives. It adds insult to injury.

    "Mixed bag, as with most companies..."

    Pros

    Radiant Systems has always had a fun "work hard, play hard" culture, and always lots of great people to work with in all areas of the company.

    Cons

    I am not sure if it's the industry they're in or perhaps a lack of innovative leadership, but I get the impression that they will not ever succeed in generating any real and dramatic growth (i.e., not just buying other companies) and shareholder value.

    Advice to Management

    Deal with the individuals not pulling their weight. It is always easier to move them to a different project/department than to have a hard conversation and/or part ways with them. But in doing so you are doing the company (and these individuals) a disservice by not being forthright.

    Pros

    Great company that is growing very rapidly. They have great managers and a great benifit package. I highly recomment Radiant.

    Cons

    There were not many downsides to the company. I believe you may need a masters degree to advance quicker within the company.

    Advice to Management

    Keep your head up and work hard. If you work hard they will treat you well. Keep up the good work.

    Pros

    Positive work atmosphere, Comfortable office space, Large and diverse list of clients across many industries, Strong atmosphere of teamwork across all depts

    Cons

    There can be a measurable amount of travel expected if you are in client facing positions. There are team members that must work together that aren't always centrally located in one industry's office.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure you live your ideal of being a great company to work for above all.
