    I worked at ReadSoft full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The people in the old ReadSoft company were the best aspects of working at ReadSoft. That has changed over the the years.

    Cons

    The Swedish corporate headquarters and the Swedish culture made decisions tough and the company slow to act and change and adapt

    Advice to Management

    Get back to the way things were

    Pros

    Great people, great leadership, great environment. ReadSoft USA is almost too good to believe. They truly live the motto, Work Hard, Play Hard. Motivation comes in so many ways, and ways that I've never experienced previously starting with leadership, support, camaraderie. Coworkers are always willing to go the extra mile for customers and each other.

    Cons

    The company was recently acquired by Lexmark, so things could change drastically. Some change has already started by losing some great people that couldn't handle the uncertainty. Others changes have been seen in more "corporate" procedures being implemented which has taken away a sense of ownership of your process and results.

    Advice to Management

    You have established a great culture and work environment, fight for it as things start to change. Your team follows your lead and will fight with you as always.

    Pros

    want to solve business problems for customers and partners and do it as a team, management in our subsidiary stands by employees, offices are well thought out to maximize team work and creative culture

    Cons

    dealing with parent company in Sweden has some challenges due to time zones and cultures but the global experience is overall positive for us and our customers .... we have a few people who gossip but most employees think they are not worthy of listening too

    Advice to Management

    continue to lead by example.... by working hard and showing respect to employees... I have seen this demonstrated here better than any place I have worked ..

    Pros

    None! There is nothing positive to say about this company. Well, I guess the salary they paid was okay. They also Christmas presents to your children which is nice.

    Cons

    People, Management, Product is Poor.

    Advice to Management

    Figure it out yourselves!

    Pros

    ReadSoft is a wonderful company to work for...they truly care about their employees and understand that people are the company's most important asset. We enjoy a dynamic corporate culture and exceptional benefits. I cannot speak highly enough of my experience here.

    Cons

    I have nothing to share in this category as I feel that ReadSoft does a great job of keeping employees happy and understands the importance of work-life balance.
