    I worked at Ventyx full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Great peers, brilliant products that were built by legacy companies that have a loyal customer base and you will never work with better co-workers anywhere. Good vacation and 401k matching.

    Cons

    What a depressing place to work in which you will be constantly asked to justify working on profitable products. Closed door policies, punishment for speaking on behalf of customer needs and market trends, swearing at subordinates, spies planted to out dissenters, and a general disrespect for the entire staff. Oh and it's a horrid location for traffic, with little understanding from management.

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

    Pros

    Good benefits. Most direct managers really care about employees. Casual environment. Nice, convenient location. Good company values and focus. GREAT employees. Get to work with some innovative groups, on important solutions. Yearly opportunity for merit-based salary increases. Yearly opportunity for bonus, based on company performance.

    Cons

    Some teams struggle because they can't get the resources they need, such as upgrades for their outdated laptops, access to virtual machines, etc. Disconnect with upper-management, but this has been improving. Company performance is up and down quarter to quarter. Some teams have HORRIBLE work/life balance. Lots of pressure from management, creating a stressful environment for those employees. Outsourcing is becoming more and more of an issue. Layoffs EVERY fall, like clockwork. Stale office atmosphere, but improving. TONS of empty desks because of massive layoffs, in recent years.

    Extremely deep pool of industry expert resources. Good team of market development personnel. Expansive solution set.

    Integration between applications was underway when I left and company wisely saw need to push this initiative and also hone focus on strategic appliations within the portfolio. But in the meantime, this was somewhat of an issue.

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

    Pros

    No pros to speak of.

    Cons

    Ventyx is probably the most screwed up company I've ever had the displeasure to work for. I should have seen the writing on the wall when I asked about the DR plan and I was told "We don't need to worry about that because we're just a software dev company". No work/life balance. Cheap VERY cheap company. Do not expert any perks or bonuses, but do expect long hours without any gratitude. Churn and Burn attitude. I was told by the Director, and I quote " We churn and burn these IT guys, we're in Atlanta, we can throw a rock and hit another IT guy...dime a dozen". What an idiot. I started looking for a new job after that because I knew nothing would change.

    Pros

    The people are great to work with. Some areas allow work from home. Benefits are above average.

    Cons

    Management changes a lot. A new CEO about every 2 years. Middle management gets changed up quite a bit and so plans are a little chaotic.
