Love and befriend the management and you will succeed!

Software Engineer (Current Employee)
San Ġwann (Malta)

I have been working at GFI Software full-time for more than 5 years

ProsThis is a good place to learn....but it stops there. No good salaries no possibilities for your career.

ConsIt is not how capable you are, it is not how much knowledge you have it is not how dedicated your are! The only important thing is to have personal friends from the management side. At the start of this year (2014) an employee survey was performed. The results were so bad that the results were not even published.

Advice to Senior ManagementPack your things and get out! You have ruined GFI Software. You are not capable and there are no good reasons for you to remain at the helm of the company. You are light years distant from reality. One day it will bite back and all will be lost.

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

Tons of opportunities

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Clearwater, FL (US)

I have been working at GFI Software full-time for less than a year

ProsGreat people, well known and respected products. Big enough to have a lot of opportunities, but not so big that it's a heavily structured, corporate environment.

ConsIf you need a lot of hand-holding and/or like to do the same exact things every day, this may not be the place for you.

Advice to Senior ManagementEncourage people to seize opportunities for development and share the vision for where the company is going.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Exciting and Challenging

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at GFI Software full-time

Pros- Great team of talented individuals;
- You could never say you are bored - a challenging environment which allows individuals to be creative and make their role their own.
- I look forward to what each day will bring

ConsI love the fact the environment changes so rapidly; however if you're someone who like rigidity and routine then GFI is perhaps not the right place for you.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Challenging place to work, too much drama.

Support Representative (Former Employee)

I worked at GFI Software full-time for more than 3 years

ProsGFI pays ok and the hours are also manageable. The location is outside of Tampa so the commute isn't too bad to get to work.

ConsThe place is synonymous with a theatre house. The place is full of drama and it seems nearly no one can keep anything to themselves. It is a small company with little room to move up. Also, to move up you have to be buddies with the higher ups.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
