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

    Pros

    they have sinks and computers.......

    Cons

    Computer security is extremely flawed. This company handles a large amount of sensitive information and you can pretty much download anything that might have a virus, then bam security breach hits the news then bam.. all the investors take all of their money out.

    Advice to Management

    Maybe add a water fountain to the building before getting a lawsuit.. hospital water in cans or hot water from the coffee machine doesnt cut it.. I know work output is important by only providing mostly caffeinated drinks but what if your employees quit for a company that actually has water bottles.

    Pros

    Great company culture - there's a sense of belonging which makes the day to day enjoyable. 99% of the people that work here believe in our company mission. Flexible work schedule and good benefits -- 401k is invested immediately .

    Cons

    Being able to operate in white space and you have to be receptive to change. This environment isn't for everyone.

    Advice to Management

    I believe the company is making all the right decisions to move it forward.

    Higher ed is a space ripe for disruption. Ellucian is ready to take it on and open to new ideas. Kind and supporting people team.

    Cons

    Many leadership changes. Sometimes moving so fast that you have to restart multiple times.

    Advice to Management

    Keep valuing your people and their knowledge.

    I have been working at Ellucian full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Good work place in terms of design (does it really matter that much?). Good for junior level only.

    Cons

    First of all, most of the Managers (software dev managers) are useless here. they do not know how to manage the team. they have just evolved as technical folks and company promoted them just because they were the tech leads and needed a promotion. they make the working environment so hostile and nobody takes any action on it. management and HR are informed about all these work issues, but there is absolutely no... action on it. second, powers lies with US executives. simple! compare Manager in india and equivalent in US, US managers would always be more powerful. Old timers in Ellucian have become pain point here. they donot have any new ideas. they just change the UI of application and think that they have done amazing stuff, but it doesnot change the user experience. they need to see other enterprise application. Ellucian feels good initially but sucks the blood out slowly, ofcourse there might be some good team but most of the part, it is just bad. application becomes so complex, nobody would know the answer, New business analysts are all less than 5 years old exp and they donot know much about writing the specification, and it becomes such huge burden for product managers. now again, NEVER join as Product manager. I have seen them struggling with sky high expectation and team doesnot give them respect. Product manager based out of US has all the commands. so much changes keep happening at uppper and upper mid level that it is very shaky to be here. CPO and CMO were fired for no apparent reason. last but most important, they pay poorly and argue that they have done enough market research to know the salary range and would justify it. But, it sucks.
