    "Good company despite some bad division management"

    Pros

    Leader in public sector
    Strong overall performance despite some bad division leaders
    Dedicated employee despite low pay

    Cons

    Agree with others - the management at Renton Division reflect badly on the company and treat their employees like fools
    *Terrible track record: they failed everything they do. Just look at EDEN, it is fading from the market; their partner Microsoft is ditching them too.
    *Nepotism: all key management positions are occupied by people related to the old management of EDEN company or their friends. The management are clueless on what they are doing. That's why EDEN products and Dynamics AX are spinning wheels going no where.
    * Never believe a word from your managers: They promise promotions and pay raise when they need you but will quickly forget their promises after they are done using you and blame it on upper management or partners. They would never hesitate to throw you off the bus to make themselves cost saving champions.
    * Vicious retention strategy: they pay well below market rate. If you put them as one of your referees, they would deliberately give bad reference to your potential employers. That's why so many good people stuck there with stagnant salary.

    Advice to Management

    Why do you put the same people who failed EDEN and Dynamics AX in charge of development? Why not save the big bucks you pay those liars to reward the employees who do all the real work?

    Pros

    * Good work-life balance (40 hours per week, was never expected to work, work weekends, or bring work home).
    * Ability to WFH
    * Company is stable and performing well.

    Cons

    * Base salary is well below the local market rate.
    * Annual raise is pretty much only adjusting for inflation (approximately 3-5%).
    * Technologies you work with aren't very marketable to future employers

    Advice to Management

    * Pay your employees market rate! Great talent will either leave or never apply in the first place.

    Pros

    There is no pro with this company. You simply cannot find a worse job.

    Cons

    The company is good at squeezing as much as possible from the employees. The managers are unprofessional in this company, at least in their Renton divison. They were all part of the old timers club. The typical management you have there would simply lock himself in the office all day; have no technical or professional skills and offer no constructive value to the team, except telling you how much you suck in the year end review. The managers are at the positions only because they are friends of the upper management. The management is also deceptive. Last year they were planning a mass layoff while promising everyone job security and promotion; but the end, they pushed a lot of people off the cliff. Some of them openly discriminate alumni of other schools except his own - Washington State University. we have all lost our faith in the management and their existence threatens our job security. Their incompetence is evidenced by the poor performance of EDEN and Dynamics AX.

    Advice to Management

    Replace the incompetent management of Renton unless you are all like them.

    Pros

    Shared van pool, free coffee, a strong soutg asian community (Indian, Pakistani, and napalese), the peer review system is very helpful

    The management is ineffective and are mostly white male, the company culture is still white centric, salary is below par, promotion does not give a big boost of salary.

    I worked at Tyler Technologies as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Had a good time with other interns; task is not technically demanding

    Cons

    The mentor is absolutely the worst I have ever seen. Can't remember his name only remember he is bearded man from Pakistan. I was told he is a senior engineering resource but he does not seem to have any more technical knowledge than a college student. He was clueless about everything I asked and was absent from work way too often. When he is present sometimes, he was pushing for updates in an intrusive manner as if I am the slacker.

    Advice to Management

    Assign better mentor for the interns. I feel that your organization has a severe lack of talent and assigned me the crappiest engineer I have ever seen

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Free coffee, lots of idle time, lots of meetings for you to kick around

    Cons

    Constantly hire and fire; the company has no idea which product it should focus and changes its mind all the time; pay is miserable and not able to attract smart and capable people; nepotism seems to be the only standard for promotion; as a result, managers have poor job knowledge and only know how to play the blame game; feels stuck and the time could have been better spent elsewhere.

    Advice to Management

    You have two many overlapping products and they are all obsolete; pay your men better rather than buying companies who are equally outdated because those companies will give out and only cost you, just like EDEN you bought a few years ago.

    I worked at Tyler Technologies full-time

    Pros

    Free beverages, game room, stock option

    Cons

    The white management doesnt let any other grow, most of the managers are white male who dont have any talent and they feel insecure due to which they dont let anyone grow, the pay scale is too low and very less learning opportunities.
    There is no visibility of your work to the higher management since ur group manager is the last person u can interact with and like I said all of the group managers are old white males with nothing else left in the life other than fooling around.
    The head of all these managers is a big flirt, just fyi

    Advice to Management

    Instead of blindly relying on bunch of looser managers do something to break the communication barrier b/w you and employees.

    I have been working at Tyler Technologies full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    -Good work/like balance.
    -Attentive management.
    -Great market share of public sector software, Tylers software sells.
    -Compensation and benefits are fairly competitive.
    -Good office culture (Renton office has a game room, foosball tournaments, team lunches, hackathon, relaxed dress code).

    Cons

    -Technology decisions usually revolve around older stacks, engineering leads are not completely aware of the evolving software development ecosystem (if you're looking to develop using that new, bleeding edge NodeJS framework - look elsewhere).
    -Some projects/teams do not have as much active development as others.
    -"Silo'ed" culture across various offices. How one office operates does not necessarily correspond with other offices.

    Advice to Management

    Don't lose sight of the current happenings in the software engineering world. Help engineering leads continue to learn and ensure they are up to the status quo. There are plenty of advances in newer technologies and standards that could be applied to develop better software and make engineers lives easier.

    Continue to push for a more enjoyable office culture as well. The status quo of culture is shifting in a big way from a "corporate feel" towards a "startup feel". If you want to retain younger employees these two things are imperative to meet.
