    Pros

    You will have a flexible work schedule. Independent consulting service without the overhead and client search. Great product with outstanding support.

    Cons

    You will travel 80 to 90 percent of the time. Since the position is 30% commission, your vacation time is like a cut in pay.

    Advice to Management

    Review implementation structure to standardize projects and project phases to a more standard approach developed by the Project Management team.

    I have been working at The CBORD Group full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    One of the best things about this company is that everybody is willing to listen to each other, and constructive input is always accepted and considered even if it comes from other departments. The corporate policies foster a friendly and co-operative environment, allowing new employees to feel at home very quickly - which in turn maximizes everyone's productivity.

    Cons

    In my opinion, we too often operate on a 'slow and steady wins the race' philosophy - which has certainly positioned us well, but it would behoove us to go for the grand slam at times, rather than being content to hit singles all day long.

    Advice to Management

    While co-operation is strong here, I believe we still have some employee-specific skills and knowledge going to waste - let's continue to build solid internal communication so that we've exhausted internal possibilities and resources before we outsource any projects.

    I worked at The CBORD Group full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    If you like being busy and continuously learning and challenging yourself CBORD is the place to work. I worked there for 3 years and the environment and teamwork was unbeatable.

    Cons

    You must know how to multi-task and be responsible for your success and failures. Confidentiality is a must working with their high profile clientele.

    Advice to Management

    Keep being a caring and family oriented environment. "Treat your employees like they matter and they will"...You already know this tho, because you treated me great and had faith in me and with this I grew and learned more than even I knew I could.

    I worked at The CBORD Group full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    CBORD benefits from a superior executive management team led by an inspiring CEO, a 35+ year history of industry leading products and services and exceptional employee and customer loyalty. The firm attracts bright, energetic staff who are deeply dedicated to the firm's mission to provide top quality software and "beyond expectation" services. This yields customer satisfaction ratings in the high 90's and similar retention rates. Similarly, the company has an unusually large number of staff with 10, 15, 20 and 25 year service records; it is a great company to join and a difficult company to leave. CBORD does an excellent job promoting staff and allowing staff to move laterally to acquire new skills and/or accommodate for life changes like new babies, illness, relocation and the like.

    Cons

    As of 2013, the benefits package was nicely broad for a firm this size (500 range), but the employee portion of healthcare insurance costs was high due to the small number of plan participants. This may have changed since 2013 as management was aggressively working to minimize these costs.

    Pros

    The people who work here are fantastic, very invested in your success and become family quickly.
    Easy accessibility to senior management--have had many questions answered by them and can call or e-mail with anything that pops up with a timely response/concern.
    Work/life balance is great--work hard, play hard type mentality!
    Flexibility--manager always works with us for any time off needed, dr. apts., unexpected issues that arise, always understanding!
    Open concept floor plan and office--business casual atmosphere, not stuffy at all.
    Compared to industry/national average PTO accrual and offerings is above par when combined vacation, sick, personal and holiday leave.

    Cons

    It's all how you look at it--you can either focus on the positives or the negatives--in my opinion the positives far outweigh any negative experience I've had thus far in my career with CBORD.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to listen and respect opinions of employees and good things will continue to happen as a result of that!

    Pros

    -- Most positions are living-wage.

    -- Will hire people without degrees, even if the Job Requirements may demand so. The company values job experience.

    -- Growing company with many possibilities for advancement.

    -- Many positions allow for frequent travel, should you wish to do so.

    -- Genuine effort is made to provide good benefits (though it could be better).

    -- Growth and Job experience is second to none. A job here will put you in position to advance in the company or seek advance employment elsewhere.

    -- Reasonable office hours.

    -- Main office is located in a business park which has an adjacent pond. Walks around the business park campus can be de-stressing.

    Cons

    -- Office politics can adversely affect evaluations.

    -- Company was once privately owned. Since acquisition by a larger public corporation, the company is slowly losing some of it's once-excellent culture.

    -- Company has cut back on opportunities to work from home or remotely (especially in support positions). The quest to increase productivity unfortunately hurts morale.

    -- Base pay is below that of similar companies with comparable positions.

    Advice to Management

    Find ways to increase efficiency and productivity without wiping out, or dramatically reducing, the things that can make a company fun to work for.
