Does Accruent offer unlimited holiday?

Pros

They a generally good for those looking for career changes, or willing to accept under-paying salaries for an opportunity to get a start in a field. They do have some good in-office perks, comfortable unlimited PTO, flexible schedule, standard package for health/retirement.

Cons

Really bad at keeping employees happy after a certain amount of time. They do not make much effort to ensure current employee happiness. Career progression is based on how aggressive you can market yourself to your manager and to those in the next tier or two. Salary increments are also the same case as you're not guaranteed a fair salary increase each year. Management will argue that they have a limited budget and only able to give a certain amount. However, this is not true after several employees were able to argue that their skills were valuable enough to merit a salary bump and some were only able to get it after showing alternative job offers from other companies with the offered salary. After leaving Accruent, it's now evident that they don't care for former employees either. Their 401k practices are unacceptable when they intentionally roll over former 401k accounts into IRAs without former employee's consent or at least a letter of notification prior to the occurrence.

What is the retirement plan like at Accruent?

Pros

The growth this company is experiencing is impressive, and after being acquired by Fortive they now have a parent company that has a strong commitment to continuous innovation and business systems that will move the needle even more. For anyone joining now, this creates a lot of new opportunities for lasting growth and security. For a product marketer, the work is challenging, with a lot of freedom to own the strategy, really drive business, and feel connected to successes. I felt like a valued member of a strong team. This company does what it says it will do, and the people there are some of the smartest, hardest working folks I've come across. On the benefits side, they're solid, with great paternity policies, unlimited PTO that you're encouraged to use, good 401k match, etc. Working in the Domain is pretty neat if you're into that scene. A lot of people that work there live there, which sounds like the best commute ever.

Cons

There's some real challenges that being an acquisition-driven company faces product-wise. Integrations are needed that aren't there yet. Industry solutions are still evolving. These are good problems to have and they're working on them. The bad problems to have is that compensation isn't very competitive and work/life balance was a little skewed the wrong way. I'd be surprised if this isn't something they address quickly because otherwise it just makes it too easy for other companies to come in with a more attractive offer, which is what happened to me. Otherwise I'd still be there.

Advice to Management

Develop more industry solutions and integrations. Review your compensation strategy.

How are the career development opportunities at Accruent?

Pros

Accruent takes chances on people. I had limited Support experience prior to starting, but Accruent saw something in me and has let me really grow. Hard work WILL be recognized. The callouts for high-value high-impact work are frequent. Management/leadership is full of REAL people. Rather than hiding behind their titles and creating distance in a bureaucratic structures, leadership will engage actively with people. The former CEO would regularly stop and chat with employees on the floor, regardless of tenure; our current CEO has seen employees in the parking lots dealing with flat tires/car trouble and offered to roll up his sleeves and help them get to where they need. The culture really is outstanding. Very supportive teams, employee interest groups, mentoring programs are available. The culture also supports a great deal of career mobility - if you can do the work to show you're ready, there will be opportunities to move laterally or vertically as you wish.

Cons

As is true of technology in general, more diverse leadership would be welcome. Steps have been made to a degree, but still more work to do. I believe communication to employees can always be worked on to ensure effective dialogue.

Advice to Management

Continue to engage/communicate with employees.
