    I worked at ScerIS full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    There are some great people working in here; Jim, the CEO, has excellent vision and attitude; and the product really is sharp and well put-together. For any customers reading this, I don't think you could get a better team behind what you need them to do. There are creative and technically savvy folks developing and delivering the products.

    Cons

    Aside from the many pros of the company, there are some serious implementation issues. The strategy for the company seems stuck in a persistently small-company mindset and some of the most senior management is just not suited to growing the firm. Not a problem if they had a team that can take the micro-management; but they seem to hire a lot of bright and ambitious people, which means you get some serious antagonism along the way.

    Advice to Management

    Clean house near the top of the company unless they have brought you to where you want to be right now. Develop better commercial-technical cooperation, build a strategy, and stick to it long enough to learn what does and doesn't work; then adjust from there.

    Pros

    The product is great and is very versatile. Most see ScerIS as a luxury but don't know how the managed without it once it is implemented. Highly recommended product.

    Cons

    Poor employee training, poor advancement potential, micro-management style, inconsistent marketing plan, empty promises for employees, poor use of employee talent. Expected 50+ hour work week is expected.

    Advice to Management

    Develop a traing program for new employees. Teach them all there is to know about ScerIS. Use ScerIS internally so employees can speak of practical experience and continue learning. Offer a clear guide to advancement and a clear understanding of what positions an employee can advance to. Develop a marketing plan and stick to it. End micro-management among all supervisors. Take note of employee talent and desired aspirations and use that to your benefit.

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

    Pros

    Few good people. Interesting products and ideas. Good benefits.

    Cons

    A lot of turn over. The company marketing vision and strategy change every year. Promote people with little experience and/or no people skills. The company just does not make any real money.

    Advice to Management

    Keep on keeping on
