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

    Pros

    The company is heading in the right direction. The CEO is the best the company has had in the last 13 years. There is significant investment in improving the software and services. The talent pool is good with a many years of experience in higher education as the company's sole focus. There is also a strong community of end users. The schedule is very flexible, at least for developers. You can work from home and shift hours as needed as long as the work gets done.

    Cons

    Carrying around legacy software of a 30+ year old company. Supporting many different deployment configurations for on-premises clients. Higher Ed, in general, is slow to adopt new technology.

    Pros

    - flexible work from home policy - free pop in Lake Mary - some great co-workers, but the good ones leave quick The new CEO has some positive effect.

    Cons

    - health insurance is expensive - no bonus for regular employees - directors get bonuses for underperforming work - underperforming employees in every team without consequences - some underperforming employees get rewarded and not fired - long deployment time - no automation - no skilled interview process - no communication between teams - a lot of long time employees who never saw newer technology - salary is all over the place - management reports up and not down - open office - favoritism everywhere - a lot of tense meetings far away from business standards. - Every team develops their own duplicate solution - Lay off waves where necessary, but the replacements aren't skilled either - Positions get filled even if the new unqualified employees - No clear roadmap or decisions
