    "Mass-firing talented, hard-working staff with very short notice-perhaps not the best business idea?"

    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Rainmaker Systems full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Excellent team, truly talented co-workers.

    Couldn't fault my manager or my team, either. Everyone on the team was hard-working and gifted.

    Cons

    There was virtually no stability or job security, most of the staff was fired with an ease of waving a hand in a single day.

    I worked at Rainmaker Systems full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Normal money if you hit the target, nice guys around in the office. Normal job to start as Business Development Executive with good salary.

    Cons

    Useless projects, calling and bothering clients. Location is awful, Godalming! Do not move there, because you can be released at any time. Management lies all the time, telling you that they don't know the real situation. Do not expect to work here for long.

    Advice to Management

    Management is not reliable support for their workers in this company!

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

    Pros

    Benefits were good and began the day you started.

    Generous when you needed time off for personal or professional reasons

    Cons

    They are not good at listening to their workers or making changes to better the company. That is why they are now in foreclosure and selling off their assets. Sad part is that they had some great products but were targeting the wrong market group. I do wish them the best.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your workers. They really can give you good ideas if you are open to them.


  10. "Change in Direction."

    Pros

    Wish the team the best in luck on their change in direction. Hopeful they can pull off a turnaround.

    Cons

    Painful rounds of layoffs as company re-tooled its direction. Understandable with the issues of losing cash quarter over quarter.

    Advice to Management

    Stick to your guns on the re-org. Stay laser focused and take care of the few remaining staff left.

    Commit to a path and follow it instead of changing key players and visions every 6 months.
