    I worked at Accruent full-time

    Pros

    - Good foot in the door for other Austin Companies - A lot of initiatives needed so a lot of things to learn and tasks to accomplish

    Cons

    - Management plays favorites and won't really do much to absolve any problems - Management also at times lacked a sense of maturity and enacted many passive aggressive behaviors - Lack of communication and transparency - Underpayment

    I worked at Accruent full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Work life balance I guess

    Cons

    Bad place to work. Low pay, as other reviews have noted. Nobody sticks around at Accruent, average is maybe a year. Not inclusive - entire team would leave for lunch/coffee/whatever and not invite the new people. Micromanagement- all in the guise of “collaboration”, they track every. Single. Thing. Half your job is tracking what you’ve been doing. Management tells you one thing and does another - get ready for weird feedback after they tell you to do something then you get told the complete opposite in your review. No support to do your job - “drink from the firehose” aka here’s your laptop...good luck! Avoid if at all possible as there’s a real culture problem here.

    I worked at Accruent full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    There are some really talented folks working there

    Cons

    When I began, I was sold a culture where everyone who worked hard and identified opportunities for growth would see a path to management. I saw a path to management as I continued to have junior members added to my team, but over the course of a year of conversation around increased responsibilities without appropriate pay grade, I got tired of hearing "we'll try again in a few months" The company does not account for individual employee contributions, and the beaurocratic nature of every process will make your head spin.

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

    Pros

    The leadership has changed for the better. We recently got a new President who was the former CRO and he seems to genuinely care about people, and is very personable. He's only been in the role a few months and I've seen a huge improvement in the way the company is run. Accruent is comprised of very intelligent people all over the world who want to make a difference and work together well. The way the teams have handled the situation with COVID-19 has spoken volumes; they seem to really be invested in their employees first.

    Cons

    There's a lot of change all the time, but for the first time, it seems to be for the better and is continuing to improve. With the new additions to the C team, I'm looking forward to seeing the company grow and become more focused on our employee base.

    I have been working at Accruent full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - If you do good work, you will get respect no matter what your seniority is. - Work/life balance was pretty good. Unlimited PTO was very nice. - Very flexible with remote work. - A great place to learn. - New Fortive 9 values seems like an improvement to the old company values.

    Cons

    - The org structure is very dysfunctional for a software company. There's no CTO, and engineering and operations are two completely separate entities. The org chart connects the two departments at the President level. Not good at all, considering the company is generally focused more on sales. - Compensation is not at market value. - Turnover is high, largely due to the reason above. Good talent leaves quickly. - Fortive 9 culture is hardly noticeable in the workplace. It's been almost 1.5 years since the acquisition.

    I worked at Accruent full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Nothing positive to say, well maybe. Nice break room!

    Cons

    Roller coaster ride! Raise money, recruit, hire, fire and sell. Repeat, over and over. Very unstable environment run by over educated, inexperineced neophytes.

    I worked at Accruent full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    High culture environment, especially in the Austin office. Good toolset for product managers, including full access to SFDC data, Aha!, Atlassian suite, Mixpanel. A company with great market positioning and win opportunity. All key departments are under one roof, which means a walk down the hall to a face-to-face will solve a problem in five minutes. It’s a fabulous place for young people to be well mentored, to seek a better position elsewhere having gotten solid training.

    Cons

    Pay is well under market, which means they can’t hold onto people. Acquired companies with non-Austin HQs don’t enjoy the same sense of connectedness, in particular ones where product management and dev teams are in different cities. They haven’t yet figured out the shared services investment that will earn big bucks in white space market.
