          I worked at Unit4 full-time

          Pros

          Allowed to work from home for one day out of the week (assuming it isn't a busy time)

          Cons

          No single focus for the product (just groups fighting internally), No training for its employees after years of "promises", Fired it's top performing professionals so it can meet a bottom line, Took a hard working office and through horrible management removed all motivation, leaders are expected to do the job with no training, no professional development structure (no path to move to the next level in your job), unreasonable...

          Advice to Management

          Stop having a double standard across the company on how NA and Europe do things. Laws protect Europe Employees from certain problems that the company likes to exploit in the NA market, because laws here are written FOR the corporation (such as time off, termination rules, work-life balance, overtime, etc). If the company wants to show its employee how great of a company it is, then remove this double standard across the...

          I have been working at Unit4 full-time

          Pros

          Amazing products and the staff believes in the products. A lot of good people and coworkers.

          Cons

          There seems to be a growing disconnect between leadership and those who actual carry out the work. Getting any type of change to happen takes way to long. Leadership has changes multiple times in short span causing a lack of alignment. Acquisitions not properly completed and integrated as one company.

          Advice to Management

          Take a moment to listen to the staff and care for employees. Actions speak louder than words.

          I worked at Unit4 full-time for more than a year

          Pros

          Smartest, coolest, most friendly people I have ever had as coworkers.

          Cons

          Management has no clear goals. They do not listen to their employees. They treat employee's like numbers not people. Massive lack of transparency and communication.

          Advice to Management

          Treat employees with respect. If you say something follow through. When you have good people bend over backwards to keep them. Keeping some one good is never as expensive and getting someone new you hope is as good. employees are the backbone of your company and product. Not the guys sitting in an office in meetings 50hours a week.

          I worked at Unit4 full-time for more than 5 years

          Pros

          When I first started, I loved working for UNIT4. Lot's of interesting assignments, great team environment. Some of the best co-workers I've ever worked with!

          Cons

          Unstable - ever other year or so they lay-off a bunch of employees right at the end of the 1st quarter - then about 8-9 months later they start hiring a bunch of new employees. I saw this happen 3 times over 4 1/2 years. They have lost so many seasoned and knowledgeable employees because of their lack of indifference towards their employees. Lack of following labor compliance for US employees - I was repeatedly told...

          Advice to Management

          The management over in Europe need to be more aware of how their decisions effect their North American employees as well as the labor compliance required especially here in the US. They also need to be honest about the direction they are heading in regarding their Professional Services department as it has become very clear that they are going in the direction that SAP did by using Partners.

          Pros

          Great team members and great new software products being released. Our company appreciates the employees and our health benefits are the best. I would refer my friends to work here.

          Cons

          There is a culture change going on for the better. People who have been here a long time may be dissatisfied with this change but sometimes change is for the better.

          Advice to Management

          Keep doing what you are doing. The future is very bright and I am glad to be a part of this exciting future. We must be doing a great job or we wouldn't be selling software for the last 36 years!
