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

    Pros

    Unlike some prior reviews, my management team has been very receptive to all ideas and I have seen changes made when needed. The new management team is fantastic, I believe all bad prior reviews were from before executive changes. PTO policy is great, benefits are pretty good, overall I have loved working here the past few years and have had great managers. I have also been offered great advancement opportunities for my limited time here.

    Cons

    No different than any other job (co-worker drama, sometimes very stressful etc)

    Advice to Management

    New executive team should keep doing what they're doing!

    I worked at WennSoft full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Smart employees.
    Meets the needs of many customers.

    Cons

    Profound leadership issues within executive team.
    Very complex product with significant costs to support.

    Advice to Management

    There are some incredibly bright and capable people there, but the problems at the executive level are so profound that it is hard to imagine anyone really thriving at WennSoft for long. Be honest and don't target people who tell the truth.

    Pros

    Good pay, interesting product, passionate employees

    Cons

    The management team isn't interested in any feedback from the employees. If employees attempt to provide feedback that is contrary to management perspective, they are labeled as agitators.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to employees as they spend a good amount of time interacting with customers.

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

    Pros

    Manager is flexible and open to considering all ideas I present.
    Manager is a strong resource, very knowledgeable, and supports me to others in the organization.
    Manager gives me the freedom to do my job without micromanaging, strong level of trust.
    Fellow co-workers are friendly and genuinely care about helping each other out.
    Fellow co-workers care about me personally and have formed friendships.

    Cons

    At times it can be challenging working with co-workers spread all throughout the country, but technology does assist.
    Some shift in focus from time to time, could be due to the ever-changing technology and software industries.

    Advice to Management

    Consider focus on bringing in less experienced candidates for roles and providing the training and development to move them forward. This could be a great way to continue to breath new life into what we are doing and make sure we are focusing on moving forward.

    Pros

    -People bond when they share traumatic experiences. Therefore you will make great friends here.
    - benefits and time off are not bad
    -soda only $.25

    Cons

    Executive team goes out drinking with customers and makes promises. They set unreasonable expectations that you have to deliver on. You are expected to work all day and night with no bonus incentive except maybe an extra half PTO day after the release, then they tell you you did a crappy job and won't be getting a raise this year. Of course the quality sucks, you had no time and no life outside of work and got burned out. You tell them that. They say the next release will be better. Repeat the same thing next year. Lose more customers.

    Advice to Management

    There's no point. Employees are asked all the time what can be done better. The same things come up every time because nothing ever changes. Then the CEO will refer to you as overhead. Overhead? Your employees are assets. Treat them like you appreciate them, and you'll stop losing good people. Bout ten long term employees just jumped ship because they got tired of being overworked and underpaid. They must have realized other companies actually give bonuses and raises. There's a culture of fear, and managements self proclaimed open door policy isn't fooling anyone. People get fired at the drop of a hat for questioning the wrong person or policy, and everyone knows it.
