    I have been working at Steelwedge Software full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - A visionary executive team that has a long-term view for the company
    - Best of breed product - Gartner recognized and appreciated by industry (especially clients)
    - Great support ecosystem - from a sales guy's point of view the support given by legal, finance and operations is tremendous
    - After a little turbulence (which is natural after a shakeup), the company has stabilized and there is a sense of purpose. Probably also explains some of the negative reviews :)
    - Healthy pipeline - as a sales guy am spending more time qualifying deals and figuring out which ones to pursue, rather than having to generate them
    - Processes are not burdensome - I have seen companies where process becomes a huge overhead. So far I have derived value from the lean processes followed in sales

    Cons

    - Product portfolio is rapidly changing - need to keep up with changes
    - Competitors are large and have deep pockets. That renders some deals 'un-win-able' as competitors bundle up SCM products with ERP products and offer deep discounts

    Advice to Management

    - Continue on charted path
    - Focus on retaining customers
    - Keep processes lean

    Pros

    A leading edge technology company with a great product and management team - a who's who list of successful leaders, a great product, as repeatedly noted by industry experts and clients. I'm an industry veteran and believe we are definitely on the fast track to growing to new heights. It is unfortunate that people who didn't adapt to change have negative things to say.

    Cons

    Not enough time to support all the requests in a day

    Pros

    1) Once Considered best in class S&OP Solutions provider.
    2) Thought Leadership in IBP/S&OP (all those people are now gone).
    3) All hands on deck approach (once upon a time).

    Cons

    1) Clueless (new) management.
    2) Not sure what the go to market strategy is and the product(s) that are needed.
    3) New management created an extremely poisonous environment.
    4) Basic lack of trust.
    5) All VPs/Senior Directors cover their backs as opposed to solving real customer issues. This is a 180 degree turn-around to what used to be an all hands on deck approach.
    6) Will lose most existing customers in the next 6-12 months because of above issues.

    Advice to Management

    Get some basic people training.

    "Great Place to Work"

    I have been working at Steelwedge Software full-time

    Pros

    As expected, a leading edge technology company with growing pains in a very competitive market. Best product and management team - a who's who list of successful leaders, a great product, as repeatedly noted by industry experts and clients. I'm an industry veteran and believe we are definitely on the fast track to growing to new heights. It is unfortunate that people who didn't adapt to change and needed to move on are struggling, as indicated by their comments. Change is constant - be a part of the solution

    Cons

    The challenge of not having enough time in the day to fully address all that is so very exciting and valuable to our customers.

    The changes we are experiencing are not unique to Steelwedge, although painful at times. We, too, believe this is very exciting time as we transform the business and appreciate your contribution.

    Pros

    The company has a history of innovation that rewards people willing to do what it takes to create market breakthroughs. Already recognized by Gartner as a leader in Sales & Operations Planning, the company launched its next-generation planning platform in October 2015, powered by the same Silicon Valley technologies that underlie high performance platforms such as Google, LinkedIn and Facebook, to turbo charge planning speed and scale. While the company is putting processes and people in place to manage its transition from an "S&OP only" company to a company driving broad planning innovation, management is inclusive in involving people at all levels of the organization in this transformation. This is a place for people who want to immerse themselves in a meaningful endeavor, not a place for people who just want a "steady job."

    Cons

    Some employees holding on to "the way we used to do things" can create negative vibes. New talent coming in can rally support, but there is the need to address those resistant to evolving along with the company. The company solves strategically important problems for market-leading companies, so sales cycles can be long (although this is the case in many companies selling enterprise solutions.)

    Advice to Management

    Remain committed to the transformation underway. The company is on the right track, with the right technology, and the right team.
