    Pros

    Great people to work with, all the way up to the executive management. Work/Life balance isn't just talked about it is actually backed by their actions.

    Cons

    Below market salary, and excelling as an employee will not reward a salary bump.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to be supportive to your team/employees. While at the same time people sometimes need more than a pat on the back to feel they are a valued employee.

    Pros

    Company culture is very positive. Benefits are great. Company seems stable and well-organized.

    Cons

    Pay is not top in the industry. It’s a for-profit corporation, so there will always be pressure to produce certain quarterly numbers.

    Pros

    You don't need any qualifications to be a software dev
    Most managers are pretty laid back and relaxed

    Cons

    The compensation is mediocre at best
    Healthcare and 401k could be better
    They say you can move up the ladder and even have pretty diagrams for it, but as much as they say "there doesn't have to be a spot available in order for you to move up" most of the time that's what happens and you get pigeon-holed

    Advice to Management

    Don't beat around the bush about promotions and ladder advancement. If there's no room to advance, just say so.

    Pros

    If you're coming out of college or you lack the necessary experience to get into IT this is a good place for you to gain experience. A good place to learn time management and consultative processes. Its a big company but as a consultant you get to learn allot of skills that will help you in your career.

    Cons

    There is no life work balance here. Management is overzealous to take advantage of you and make you commit to unreasonable hours. If you have internal meetings , missing hours will have to be made up to make sure you have 160 billable hours per month. The core values that Tyler says they reflect is far from what actually goes on. Also making real progress from a project perspective is not more important than getting billable hours. Tyler sticks with its industry reputation to blow the project budget on purpose and run through all the hours to raise change orders to make more money. This is counter intuitive to professionals trying to deliver quality work on time.

    Advice to Management

    We look up to servant leaders who are willing to put the same effort/work in that we do. Make sure your implementation managers are more than slave drivers and willing to put in the same amount of work/hours their people are putting in.

    Positive Outlook

    I worked at Tyler Technologies full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    - At my time of employment it was a positive, low stress environment. Work was distributed across a large team and any problems in management generally were never seen at the team member level.

    - In several instances I got to work on problems closely with customers or subcontractors.

    - My manager knew well my capabilities and tried as much as possible to give me interesting problems to solve.

    - If mistakes were sometimes made or a complicated project was run past deadline, typically it was not a big deal - there was a good culture as far as that goes.

    - Had an excellent supporting development environment (QA, build system, developer documentation and resources) considering the rather dated codebase.

    Cons

    - From a software development point of view, there are only so many "interesting" problems to solve in ERP software (especially that of which is built on a legacy codebase, which heavily resists change).

    - Cross-team communication was problematic if required on issues. Although I believe this issue was becoming less of a problem when I left.

    - Maintenance of an unimaginably large codebase supporting anywhere from 10 to 14 active versions can be mind-numbingly tedious at times.

    Advice to Management

    Although the environment is good, it's important to keep your developers interested and make sure they believe in the product they are developing.
