    I worked at xTuple full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The team at xTuple is strong and talented. They work well together to deliver technology to small to mid sized manufactures and distributors. I worked remotely with customers and the team in Norfolk, which went well.

    Cons

    Working remotely and with open source products had their challenges.

    Thanks for your review. Your feedback helps us as we re-evaluate company-wide remote work options. It's really tough to stay connected if you don't have the opportunity for more than the occasional... More

    I worked at xTuple full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Got to work with a wide variety of technology and learn about different industries and their implementations of the software.

    During my time at xTuple I had two children and an international move with my family. I cannot say enough about how crucial it was to work for an employer that was so solid in their support of their employees. The culture here is phenomenal.

    Cons

    Pay may be a bit less than larger software companies.

    Advice to Management

    More emphasis on annual reviews and salary increases.

    Pros

    Fantastic frequent teambuilding activities.
    Competent developers really know their field.
    Laid back atmosphere.

    Cons

    Communication is weak and inconsistent.
    Goals for new products change too quickly and without adequate communication.
    Close the **** back door.

    Advice to Management

    Reign in and consolidate the infrastructure. Enforce communication guidelines.

    I have been working at xTuple full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Life-long learning encouraged, room to grow professionally for those willing and able to step-up, strong self-management rewarded. Great environment for solely virtual or combination of office/remote. It's not work; it's a career. Customers and resellers are a big resource for new staff, because they see the value of the product(s) and the company's mission.

    Cons

    If you're not a self-starter and have to be told what to do, then this isn't the place for you. Jump in feet-first!

    Advice to Management

    More superhero outings and community tech meetups!

    I worked at xTuple full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Little, if any, guidance so you're free to work on whatever you want. Good sales and marketing staff. Decent salary.

    Cons

    See above. Horrible technology - think 1990's database application. Meandering product roadmap. CEO knows nothing about the technology or the customer and is without any form or concept of ethical behavior. Remaining technical staff are clueless with respect to functionality or modern application design - two massive failed attempts to port the application to web-friendly technologies. "Application Development" has become bug squashing.

    Advice to Management

    Install new CEO. Stop writing phony reviews on Glassdoor. Find a buyer or a partner that can provide the technology that your sales and marketing staff can actually get behind.

    Pros

    Great Office Space and Location
    Interesting and Sharp Technical Staff
    Good Work/Life Balance
    Innovative Ideas and Unique Open Source Product mean good opportunities to expand.

    Cons

    -Disinterested and Unengaged management
    -Withholding of money owed to employees for extended periods of time, causing trouble with their personal finances and personal lives
    -Political and Cliquish environment among upper levels of management, leading to distrust across departmental lines and companywide infighting
    -Upper Management lying to employee's asking for pay owed to them (e.g Contracted Bonus' and Commission Pay).

    I worked at xTuple full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Pay is decent, benefits are okay, hours are flexible. The Norfolk office is nice, with the opportunity to work remotely.

    Cons

    They have the revenue of a small startup, but the political infighting and bureaucratic befuddlement of a third world nation state. Nearly half of the company is managers.

    Advice to Management

    Seek venture capital and install a new CEO.
