    I have been working at Soffront Software full-time

    Pros

    The ability to work independently is attractive and all work is both appreciated and critical to grabbing more market share. There is really unlimited growth potential and new assignment possibilities...

    Cons

    Actual decision are more centralize than in other companies I've worked for. Not to detrimental though. Need larger office space. Understand they are working on moving.

    Advice to Management

    Invest more in growing brand awareness. Choose to craft CRM to verticalize one or more industries. Take the general success of the tool and really customize for Professional Coaching as an example.

    I worked at Soffront Software full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Absolutely nothing. Again, there is absolutely nothing good about this company.

    Cons

    Everything. This company together with its CEO is the worst company I was ever connected with. Manu Das will use you and throw you away like a used rag. He is a horrible professional and even worse human being. The positive reviews here were coerced or written by Manu himself.That is the type of snake and scumbag this person is. If you are currently employed and you join this company, you will be out of the job in 3 months.

    Advice to Management

    Get a soul

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

    Pros

    Really struggled with this and found none. Sorry.

    Cons

    Mom and Pop shop with zero vision. Zero career growth and forget appraisals and raises. Mediocre product with a laughable client list after all these years in business. And yes, all these positive reviews are fake. Compensation and work/life balance are an embarrassment.

    Advice to Management

    Shut down shop and retire.

    Pros

    The best thing I like is the product. Our Cloud Based CRM is a fantastic solution for many types of organizations which makes for many prospects and an easy platform to get passionate about when selling. My colleagues are all very driven and represent all types of personalities that contribute to a healthy daily working environment and plenty of collaboration. The leadership is industry seasoned, creative and adaptable; providing enough direction to allow individual ideals and contributions.

    Cons

    The only concern I have is personal and that is whether I'm able to either shorten the sales cycle in general, or sell into a large enough of a user base company within the next couple of months in order to leverage the liberal compensation plan. This will determine if I've found a home here in my Cloud Selling Palace!

    Advice to Management

    Keep dreaming and dare to go even beyond.

    Pros

    Worked almost 3 months at Temporary Position.
    Working at Soffront was a unique learning experience and great Opportunity to grow in my career, loved the team and would highly recommend to anyone who gets the chance.
    It was a very productive short journey at Soffront. It seemed like working there for years. I really enjoyed working here. I learned a lot from the CEO on how to succeed, never give up and "can do it" attitude. The CEO is very much involved, experienced and gives employees visibility and direction to grow. The coworkers are amazing. It’s a collaborative team of people. Hard working and great knowledge of the product. The employees are the asset of the company.

    Cons

    No cons to report. Excellent company.

    This company is debt free, profitable and in business past 21 years enduring two major economic meltdowns during 2001 and 2008. The company is rich in Technology and carries the original product idea of Customer Relationship Management.

    Advice to Management

    Spend more in partnering with the big brand organizations to push enterprise and small market crm business.
    Reserve more time for new employee training and motivational program.

    I have been working at Soffront Software full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I have been worked at Soffront for 14 years. 14 years ago, I was a foreign student just out of school, no working experience. Soffront gave me a great learning opportunity and build up my confidence in the work.
    We had 9/11 happened and then 2008 economic crisis happened - still we are doing good and our product is very good and flexible and we are creating new releases and winning new customers. Last 14 years there have been two major crises - many companies had difficulty maintaining growth but we are doing well.
    This is what I have been the main reason to stay in this company, I am strongly recommended for this company.

    Cons

    Work load can be heavy sometimes.

    Micro-management to the nth degree, poor strategic vision, too much dependence on offshore development in India.Very poor compensation.
