    I have been working at Unit4 part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    "In business for people" is so much more than a strapline at Unit4. It's clear that Mike Ettling and the Global Leadership Team have serious ambition - and they're taking everyone along with them on this journey. People are central to all decisions; whether it's the people who work at Unit4, the people who work for our partner organisations or the people who use Unit4 ERP, FP&A, HCM and Student Management software as customers - everyone benefits for our people first philosophy. It's a fast-paced environment and there's lots to do - everyone is enthusiastic and approachable and keen to make improvements. People are valued and there are great opportunities. For a large global organisation there is still a sense of belonging and comradery. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Unit4 as a great place to work.

    Cons

    I haven't come across anything I would consider a con.

    Pros

    Unit4 is truly a people-centric company which has created a supportive work environment for its employees and has put in place a number of initiatives in 2020. Proof points include: (1) Establishing a company-wide employee council to identify and implement programs to support employees, as with virtual well-being offerings (i.e., yoga, exercise, 1:1 connections); (2) Offering opportunities for group support of community organizations via virtual participation; (3) Ensuring that employees are taking time to recharge and rejuvenate. In addition, Unit4 has fostered a team mindset whereby individuals across departments throughout the company readily engage and work with one another on projects and initiatives. There is a commitment by individuals to focus on achieving goals and objectives together, and to bring their best efforts. It is truly motivating to work in this type of environment on a daily basis.

    Cons

    No cons at this point.

    Pros

    Senior Management values your opinions and actively encourages you to add value to those social causes that improve the organization, community and self. Be a part of the solution wherever possible. As a Global organization they do a great job of promoting collaboration between different regions and business entities.

    Cons

    Organization needs to continue to optimize the best methods for marketing and promoting all product lines. More focused effort on selling Financials.

    I worked at Unit4 full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    I can't think of any.

    Cons

    Product Development is unresponsive, but more importantly they have no clue as to the industries that they are trying to develop software for. The Student Information System is unusable. There are too many holes in it.

    I worked at Unit4

    Pros

    Potential opportunity for young people looking for a career

    Cons

    Don’t bother applying if you are a white guy over 40: their internal guidelines now discriminate and filter out such candidates. They are trying to diversify the staff, which is well intended, but are doing it in a blatantly discriminatory way.
