    I worked at ConnectWise full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Coworker, lots of friendly people Lunch stipends everyday This is just a filler to meet Glassdoor’s 20 word requirement, true story.

    Cons

    CEO Pay is below industry standard No loyalty to employees Bad insurance Raises are very poor Management, for the most part, is clueless Top end promotions for brown nosers only CEOs brother may run over you in the parking lot. Slow down!!

    Advice to Management

    The direction of this company is a shame because the upper management is a joke. There are many genuinely nice people that work at CW so you will more than likely make some great friends. This company is all about who you know. Hiring from within is one thing, but it is common practice at CW and therefore, a lot of people aren’t experienced/qualified for their roles. Expect to be drastically underpaid and never expect...

    Cons

    Poor management. The company was once great but it has forgotten where it came from. If you are a woman be ready to sleep around to make it to the top. The product management team is a joke. They have no idea what they are doing. They have been trying to release a mobile app for 3 years and still have not released anything. Micromanaging is real. Desktop app has been doing rewrites for a year. Don't be fooled...

    Pros

    Growing profitable company. Good place to start as an engineer.

    Cons

    Some real amateur middle managers. Micromanaging developers with time tracking - would make any West coast engineer scoff. Compensation is just terrible.

    I totally get it, micromanagement can sometimes be annoying. I would also say that sometimes a manager may not know that he or she is micromanaging, so it would be important to communicate. The cool thing about ConnectWise is we are always open and willing to listen, one of our most ...

    I worked at ConnectWise for less than a year

    Pros

    - Competitive salary - Awesome development team - Great company culture, team oriented - For tech interns, there are tons of knowledgable employees that love talking about their areas of expertise. - Fast company growth means many opportunities to take on new challenges

    Cons

    - Fast company growth also means an intense work environment that can be overwhelming at times - Commute can be lengthy, but the same can be said for most of the Seattle area.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the fantastic team culture!

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

    Pros

    I started here about 9 months ago and have had an amazing experience thus far. KPIs are attainable but you have to work. The atmosphere is great, they live by the philosophy to treat their employees well and in return gain employee loyalty. We are provided free lunch everyday and a break room stocked with everything you can imagine. It feels like management genuinely cares and tries to be as transparent as possible....

    Cons

    While transparent there is sometimes a lack of communication which is to be expected in any organization. Wish the vacation time was different.

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

    Pros

    The company truly believes in and exhibits their core values. The culture encourages innovation and senior management is very willing to listen to fresh ideas. Fellow colleagues seem to feel the same way and it is a joy to work with such an enthusiastic group of people. The company is also willing to find where efficiency can be improved and adjust processes accordingly.

    Cons

    The fail fast mentality can sometimes lead to running extremely hard at goals that can be a tad overzealous. The quarterly goals can be unrealistic leading to some managers pushing for team members to do things with an emphasis on speed to meet a deadline rather than correctness.

    Advice to Management

    Ensure that goals are realistic to avoid rushing to meet artificial deadlines.

    Pros

    This has been one of the best experiences I have ever had with a company. Everybody here treats you as an equal from the CEO down to the last man on totem pole. High energy and encouraging staff makes you enjoy your job and coming to work. Great incentives for working hard as well as unlimited training at your finger tips.

    You guys are doing an amazing job and I wouldn't have you guys change anything.. Always quick to answer any questions we may have with an open door policy..

    Executive team open to feedback from all employees within organization Using the latest in software technologies Friendly and fun company culture - employee moral is very high Employees receive free lunch and a completely stocked kitchen!

    Cons

    It's a fast paced, technical world here, which can create stress and a breakdown in communication at times. The employees at ConnectWise want to deliver high-quality results to our partners (our term for clients). We all put stress on ourselves when we want to deliver, but management consistently puts together activities and opportunities to help us unwind (drawings for concert tickets, gift certificates, sporting events,...

    I'm sure I'll be repeating some topics from previous posts, but this truly is a great place to work. From my first day in the office I felt very welcome and comfortable at ConnectWise. Everyone I've spoken to was very friendly and certainly willing to help with any questions I had. Very different from your typical cutthroat sales environment.

    Pros

    The product is great making it easy to express the value to partners and prospects. The environment is the best I've ever experienced! Everyone here from the top on down is very approachable and genuinely enthusiastic about the product and helping to grow your understanding of it. The creature comforts are insane! From the free food to daily competitive giveaways, there is no shortage of luxury and motivation to perform.

    Cons

    The only drawback that comes to mind is the pure volume of information to be absorbed. In the beginning, it feels very much like drinking from the fire hose. But it's all necessary to learn and ultimately helpful to ensure your success here.
