    Pros

    Free lunch on Thursday, Smart People, Decent Pay

    Cons

    Very poor management, especially in the engineering and finance departments. Lots of interdepartment fighting and bickering. Management does not seem to care about their employees, and most of the good ones have left. Over 100 employees across the company have left in the last 1-2 months, many fed up with the politics and lack of accountability.

    The culture is very poor and morale is at an all time low. If you are considering joining, consider elsewhere. They pay higher and have inflated titles because no one wants to work there. Beware. Read the other reviews and you'll see.

    If they could just get their act together with some real leadership, they have so much potential.

    Pros

    Many people at RMS have worked there a long time, which gives you the opportunity to build good relationships.

    Cons

    In the past few years, the software dev leadership has been in turmoil, but this seems to be stabilizing.

    Advice to Management

    Keep employees informed.

    Pros

    - free lunch once a week
    - gym on campus

    Cons

    Everything relies on outdated technology (everything is based on excel, no version control, no open source interest...) and the leaders are very happy with it. There is no push to improve this. If you want to be fluent in the in-house proprietary software, then it will be great. Otherwise, well, you're in the silicon valley, heart of technology innovation.

    Advice to Management

    Be at least open to taking risks and using technology that isn't 15 years old

    Pros

    Competitive hiring salaries for full time employees.

    Ability to work in a variety of reporting structures with a single job description.

    Cons

    "In flux" does not describe what is happening. The company is shedding employees daily with no sign of stopping due to CONSTANT reorganizations. Discussions of stock options and "transparency" at all levels have led to a miopic executive vs rank-and-file attitude. This would be tolerable if the company weren't totally failing to staff properly and insisting that previously set deadlines be met by an ever decreasing "team first" workforce. Pep talks consist of how important we are as a company, while demonstrating how unimportant the hard core working units are by shuffling their bosses like a deck of cards.

    Advice to Management

    Please, please stop changing the goalposts while keeping the expected deadlines. Be honest with yourselves about the amount you are asking loyal teams to do. Stop talking about culture while letting your culture dissolve under waves of terminations. Culture is not bought or spoken. It is earned through years of trust.

    Pros

    Free lunch on Thursdays.

    Commute.

    You will be well trained in company politics at all levels. Which could very well be useful down the line in your own career.

    Cons

    Work life balance is pretty bad. I felt overworked and underpaid most of the time there.

    You will be told "It's a big company that still wants to operate like a startup". Which basically means you will work like you are in a startup but you wont get any richer if the company succeeds. Though you will face the axe if the company fails.

    There is always a ton of work to do so it makes it hard to take time out and look for other opportunities. Think twice about this before getting stuck in this quicksand.

    Advice to Management

    Work on building solid company culture. It feels like a bunch of school kids are running the show.

    Pros

    Good pay with good perks!

    Cons

    CEO has lost his mojo!
    Seems to be on a hamster's wheel now. Continues to rejig his team every 6 months but with same end result....no delivery of key cloud platform or increase in sales.
    The Service, Sales, and Cloud delivery teams are in complete disarray and DMGT will be well served now replacing the CEO for his failed execution.

    Advice to Management

    Stop acting like a hamster on a wheel.
    DMGT should take the tough call to replace the CEO!

    Great group of people. So much talent. Flexible Hours.

    I'm not sure what you're doing but I hope it works out.

    Cons

    RMS CEO initiated transitioning the company to a Cloud based Service Provider about 5 years ago!
    The CEO has made a lot of changes along the way, fired a lot of top management brass but the outlook still remains dark.
    The team has only been able to virtualize systems and that is now Cloud!
    It is time that CEO takes a step back and bring in the Real Cloud Team and stop wasting millions on his failed strategy!

    Advice to Management

    It is time DMGT board considers replacing the CEO that has continually failed for now more than years!
