      No work life balance, no respect, horrible employer

      Pros

      Salary, some colleagues, home working

      Cons

      No work life balance as it is a global company that expects you to work when they need, not when you are contracted, so 70-80 hour weeks instead of the 37.5 on the contract. Added to this they don’t have enough staff so the need is constant. I get over 100 emails a day whilst also on back-to-back meetings for 8 hours. The execs rarely listen or treat you with respect. R&D for Banner is particularly bad. PS works on the American model so you do 70 hour weeks normally. CS don’t get listened to, customers don’t get listened to. They talk the talk of wanting to be a good company to work for, but a few execs spoil it for the rest.

      Awesome place to work!

      Pros

      1. Top management is easily approachable. Conducts regular town hall meetings to share the company's direction/vision on regular basis. 2. Good hands-on experience on different technologies as a full-stack developer. 3. The Agile process is nicely followed which adds value to your career. 4. Awesome environment, culture & values which keep an employee motivated. 5. Good health policy, cab facility, indoor games, canteen, Sodexo (INR 2200 PM), Thrive (INR 25K annually reimbursement for sports purchases and more), Education Assistance (50K annually ), etc. 6. Work-life balance is just incredible. A best working place for a family person.

      Cons

      1. Some people on the team do internal politics (but not the top management or your manager) which takes your peace of mind. If you can handle it, you're okay.

      Values that align with mine

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Ellucian hosts a values set that aligns well with mine. For instance, there is a commitment to hard work coupled with an appreciation for work-life balance. Additionally, the benefits package includes opportunities to serve your local community with paid time off. There are opportunities for lifelong learning such as LinkedIn Learning, company and departmental book clubs and thought leadership/conference participation. There is a visibility of and access to executive leadership. Especially during COVID-19 response, the executive team provided regular updates and shared rationale for decisions being made. The executive team is approachable and cares about the well-being of the employees.

      Cons

      There is not a lot of opportunity for upward movement. I have been in my current role 4+ years and find very few opportunities for new responsibilities, nor do I see a next step for me within the company.

      Exciting place to be, bright future ahead

      Pros

      An organization with the right leadership in place to make a real difference for our customers and their needs. The strategy and vision are in place to help transform and propel higher education overall. Very focused on employees by providing great benefits, flexibility and a good work/life balance, especially during these challenging times. I’m excited for what the future holds for us.

      Cons

      There have been some reorganizations over the past couple of years; however, this is typical with a company that is transformative. A growth area for some individuals/teams is to understand that the only constant in life is change. A challenge (at times) with adoption of outside the box thinking due to the resistance of change.
