I worked at Portware L L C full-time (More than 8 years)
Smart, friendly, helpful people, pleasant work environment, engaging product offerings and a very forward-looking firm. As an execution management system they are hands down the best and most progressive in the industry.
The AM role is way too much of a catch-all for a wide range of responsibilities that, in addition to project management & product deployment spans in-depth configuration, production support, quality assurance and basic fix connectivity. Too often AMs are held responsible for responsibilities that really belong to and should be fully managed by other groups. These issues have been raised from time to time over the years but very little progress was made in my time there.
Advice to Management
Portware has been in existence for nearly 20 years but in too many ways still functions like the start-up they used to be. In particular the AM role needs a more focused definition with a more narrow and specific set of responsibilities. To that end, other groups need to be held more accountable for their work. This has been a problem for too long and any change toward improvement has either been too slow or not followed up on.
I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Portware L L C (Coimbatore (India)) in October 2014.
