    OK first job, don't stay for too long

    Software Engineer (Former Employee) Effingham, IL (US)

    ProsI enjoyed working in a team environment and had good training before I started working on the products. Flexible working conditions were nice.

    Cons-No incentive to be productive. I was a top producer, got the same bonus as everyone else in the division.
    -Was frequently lied to by management regarding structural changes to my department and the department's pay structure in order to keep me as an employee.
    -No opportunities for advancement
    -Coffee provided was terrible
    -Low pay
    -Bad benefits
    -After leaving, learned that managers have a different bonus structure that gives them a percentage of their salary. Why are they rewarded when I bust my butt and get nothing?
    -Also after leaving, found out that other companies have significantly better perks and benefits available.

    Advice to Senior ManagementNeed to reward top performers or they will continue to flee the company.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    CAESY was good until Patterson killed it.

    Director of Development (Former Employee) Vancouver, WA (US)

    ProsDental experience. But that's it for a software organization. No other good reason to be there. The remaining development group has some wonderful people in it. Really good guys.

    ConsMoved from a solid open-source software engineering organization to a closed minded Microsoft shop. REDUCED their effectiveness as a development organization.

    Advice to Senior ManagementFiring the senior management at CAESY and running the company from Effingham was a dumb idea. That ended the likely prospects for CAESY in one blow

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
