    Pros

    Growing company that is providing lots of opportunities for professional growth. ELT team is very supportive and inclusive. Lots of room for improvement but more than willing to implement best in class processes when presented

    Cons

    Workload is heavy, but expected. Staffing is light, but typical for a smaller company. Procurement/financial reporting process is cumbersome, but getting better

    Pros

    There are 2 days a week I don't have to be there.

    Cons

    Where to begin...Systems and processes that have been out of date for decades. Tyrannical environment that leads to a culture of CYA rather than openly working together at an attempt to improve this failing company. Parent company that is in the dark and not effectively managing this asset. Management team that is skilled at using poor judgment and CEO that is in way over his head. They sloppily scramble to acquire companies that "improve" their revenue, and cover up their massive due diligence M&A failures with synergies (aka firings) of massive blocks of employees that are actually more skilled than the employees that they keep! Place is 100% broken.

    "Misaligned Incentives"

    Pros

    They pay well and you find small groups of good people to commiserate with.

    Cons

    The executive team, including PE ownership, and the company itself are misaligned. The focus from above is to continue to bolt on acquisitions and inflate the revenue numbers at all costs. M&A can be a strategy, but it has to be done with thought and care rather than jumping at each and every possible deal. The focus on this growth strategy has caused severe deficits in the back office and overarching corporate processes. You need to give people the time to build out and mature the company rather than expecting everything to be done overnight. Instead, the M&A team continues to bolt on additional workload with no respect or care for daily functional operations or lack of existing process frameworks. As long as the acquired company or asset is "integrated" they are celebrated. This is in spite of ongoing processes to actually complete the integration that span months and sometimes years after they've thrown their celebration for a successful "integration". This company is growing but not growing thoughtfully. Leadership should take a step back and reassess a sustainable growth strategy rather than focusing on their own payout from a future sale by the PE firm. The employees are not happy and will leave if things do not change. That is if they are not "synergized" first.

    Pros

    Benefits are competitive and some technical talent

    Cons

    Where to start. CEO is out of touch and in over his head. Company continues to buy declining technologies and force employees to integrate solutions. Lack of a clear vision and poor planning and communication to the field. Turning into an environment where the average employee is not appreciated and the moral is at an all time low. If you are considering joining this company. Don’t. Dead end job.

    Pros

    Very strong culture of support, collaboration, and appreciation for unique ideas Lots of opportunity for career growth if you can take advantage of it. For sales they are not afraid to provide the resources you need to be successful. Sales teams are also given a great degree of freedom on how they want to work their accounts and territories. Everybody is open to working together on the common goal of providing top quality solutions and taking care of customers. This is very much a company for people that want to work hard, contribute with their own unique talents, and strive to be the best they can and support the team around them do the same.

    Cons

    Very fast growth and acquistion strategy can cause some uncertainty and you need to be able to change and adapt quickly. Internal processes could be improved, things frequently move slow or in an inconsistent manner. If you aren't constantly pushing to be better, or are looking for a job where you can just do the bare minimum to get by, people will notice. Only a con if you don't want to change that.

    Pros

    Frankly, they are few and far between.

    Cons

    There should be a rebrand to Syncingsort because this place is like a sinking ship. Antiquated product, poor leadership without any decision-making ability, inept management that loves to micromanage, and miserable, overworked employees. The only people that love this company are the consultants!! Don't walk away from a job here...run.

    Pros

    Good workers that try very hard, dedicated and professional.

    Cons

    Overwhelming change for a prolonged period of time without a clear vision. Workers being asked to do too much for no personal gain. C level team (some) are very out of touch with challenges and don’t provide any solutions. Continue to hire more consultants and could be spending money on people and products.

    Pros

    Smart people with good solid products

    Cons

    CEO and management are social which makes it seem like they are nice and care about people. They aren’t and they don’t. They expect employees to make sacrifices and do more than can be done. And then management gets mad at employees when they are used up.
