      In this economy, you can probably do better

      Pros

      Some good people work there The work environment is not high drama or abusive

      Cons

      StoneRiver had been declining for years which caused many, many people to leave. Also, multiple rounds of layoffs occurred during this decline which kept bringing morale lower and lower. Then Sapiens bought StoneRiver and it got worse. Sapiens is dysfunctional with a clear lack of leadership. This caused even more people to leave and more layoffs. If you really need a job and got an offer from StoneRiver, A Sapiens Company you could accept it as a temporary position on your way to something better. Otherwise, you might want to hold out for something better because it does exist.

      Pros

      As with most companies it’s your co-workers and hard-working piers.

      Cons

      Old technology and the Sapiens acquisition were not a good combination. Management was totally unconcerned with not having a sales pipeline or budget overruns.

      Ok work but classic large enterprise experience.

      Pros

      Pay is pretty good and the people are good to work with. In my particular case I can work from home a lot, but they aren't allowing that as much any more. The technology is ok to work with for the most part.

      Cons

      Large enterprise issues like complete hard drive encryption that slows the machines substantially. Work isn't too challenging and there isn't a lot of room for creativity. No Macs allowed. The management talks of Best in Class software, but it isn't supported from top to bottom. E.g., we must use IBM Rational Functional Tester even though developers and QA all dislike it. We have to use ClearCase even though nobody likes it. We say we want best in class, but look to develop mobile solutions that are lowest common denominator-driven for ease of cross platform development (iOS & Android). There isn't a EVP of Product Design, which I believe is required if you want best in class products.

      Pros

      Most coworkers are nice.

      Cons

      Leadership is terrible and base decision not on merit or abilities but on factors that should not be tolerated.

      Pros

      I can only speak for my specific business unit and my specific department, but I would say that my job seems stable, and the employees are not mistreated (I should know I have been in some really bad companies previously). The new corporate structure is more like the way Fiserv used to be and the business units have more freedom than under Fiserv corporate. The new benefit package is really nice, I was very impressed.

      Cons

      Due to the small size of business units and independence of those business units advancement does not come easily. When poor managers are promoted it takes for ever to correct the problem and many times restructuring is done without fully understanding the consequences of those changes.

      Pros

      The people - dedicated to success of their customers and a sprit de corp of willing to help each other to that end. A team educated and experienced in the insurance industry that applies their skills to the success of their customers and each other. StoneRiver has a dedication to their existing clients while focused on developing products that insurers need in the future for competitive advantage and profit improvement

      Cons

      Areas of improvement may be in the communication internally and externally of the successes and vision of the company. Meetings to communicate to employees are focused on an annual or bi-annual basis as a total group. More communications that bring people/teams togehter face to face more often would be helpful even if on a smaller basis.

      StoneRiver -- good company but needs to improve on certain things

      Pros

      This company has a competitive product set and is developing an improved set of products that can be updated as technology changes. There is a casual dress code and pay & benefits are on par with similar companies.

      Cons

      This company was formed by several mergers and seems to have problems more typical of a large bureaucracy. Management at times seems more concerned about making the next sale than whether the company has the infrastructure to support the customer needs. In fact, the company will make the sale first and then try to figure out how to fulfill the terms of the contract later. Also, it appears this company prefers to have H1B & offshore contractors instead of American employees. There have been several cases where American employees have been laid off, only to be replaced by non-American contract employees within 2 weeks. Management also tends to hold back important information until long after the employees need to know it, causing a near constant "fire-fighting" environment.
