This company has a long way to go before it can be a leader in the ERP market

Pros- Exposure to multiple industries
- Provides access to 'C' level executives
- Frequent flier miles, free car rentals, and hotel points
- Per diems allow for savings

Cons-Old software product
-Slow product development cycle
-Lack of structured implementation approach
-No formal training; this is mostly done on the client's site
-Poor usability of product
-Low % of satisfied customers
-Poor senior leadership
-Too much focus on billable hours
-Constant change in senior management
-Very little interaction with senior management
-No mentors for junior staff
-Poor compensation
-A lot of travel
-Little or no performance feedback
-Limited opportunities for career growth

Advice to Senior Management-Focus on improving the usability aspect of the product
-Focus on providing the client with true value rather than just 'making the sale'
-Provide good training to employees, not only on the product but also on subjects like people management, leadership, etc
-Create standard implementation methodology

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Grobal Aquastations not people

Business Manager (Former Employee)
Redmond, WA (US)

I worked at CDC (Hong Kong)

ProsIf you like being jerked around and basically treated like a number - go for it.

ConsNo strategy, total secrecy of senior management, night of the long knives, total destruction of self confidence and esteem.

There is very little feedback to the staff on what is expected and what is required. There is no discussion of strategy or company direction. In fact there is no telling of staff what the strategy and direction is, there is just an expectation that. Quarterly figures were passed back, and nothing was ever said. It is like working in a vacuum.

Advice to Senior ManagementTake a long hard look at yourself. Aquiring companies and then providing no direction or guidelines is a very poor way of growing a business asset.
Constant reliance on management through the quarterly results is not effective. The business needs constant feedback and communication so that it can learn and grow. Sending a bunch of numbers through and receiving no feed back doesn't work.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
