    I worked at Jive Software full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great company and culture prior to the acquisition by ESW (parent company) under the umbrella of one of their subsidiaries, Aurea Software. The leadership of ESW/Aurea are bold faced liars and are incapable of telling the truth. I am so grateful to be out of there.

    Cons

    Everything. If you see ESW or Aurea Software, run the other way.

    I worked at Jive Software full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Jive was once a great company full of amazing, talented people. Management was open and honest and really cared about their team and the well-being of its members. The product was and still is something I cannot imagine working without. My co-workers were wonderful and I always looked forward to coming into the office. One of the best places I have ever had the privilege to work for.

    Cons

    As soon as Jive was acquired things went down hill. The Aurea management teams are abysmal and incompetent their VP's were inexperienced, unprofessional and completely out of touch. If I wasn't watching a company that I love fall apart, it would have been comical how terrible the Aurea people I had to 'work' with were. The CEO is great at insulting the company and employees and at making the women in his meetings feel incredibly uncomfortable with his word choices. Jive is a sinking ship thanks to how poorly this acquisition was handled.
