    Pros

    Good benefits, good people in the ranks

    Cons

    Management has no consistent plan, Engineering and supervisory positions are being outsourced from US and high salaried locations to Russia and China. This is the go-forward strategy stated outright by senior management.

    Advice to Management

    Stop managing up and stop being yes men/women. It would be nice if management questioned the direction of senior management when they know it the wrong direction instead of just towing the company line and pretending it is wonderful.

    I worked at Rocket Software full-time

    Pros

    Great Benefits and passionate CEO.

    Cons

    Complete lack of diversity in Upper Management and Executive level roles. Focus and direction of Company is constantly shifting leaving employees confused. There is no clear career path and solid employees often leave Rocket to pursue new opportunities.

    Advice to Management

    There needs to be more inclusiveness and communication to employees. Upper management appears to be a closed group. The lack of diversity and awareness of community is disheartening.
