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

    Pros

    Fruit bowl on Monday morning

    Cons

    Toxic environment, loads of BDM's left and continue to leave ... older BDM's are unmotivated, new BDM's left within a few months of starting. People are constantly moaning about the leadership

    Advice to Management

    Accept the fact that people leave because they want change and are unhappy. Sydney, you need to fundamentally change, and that probably starts with CEO and his 'managers'

    I worked at SoftwareONE

    Pros

    Can not think of anything good apart probably it might be a good start for a first job after graduate from school.

    Cons

    Favoritism causing no equal opportunity, no career growth, bad management; core value only namesake, turn and churn. Zero learning. No proper onboarding process and training.

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

    Pros

    Enjoyed working with the company since starting but has changed with new local MD. Great people but leaving fast due to above. Good company looking to differentiate and move with the times. Other benefits but not worth having to put up with changing jobs due to new MD. My ratings are based on today and have been tried to be conservative and would have been higher 8 months ago. People like the COO are experienced and...

    Cons

    New MD Micromanages. Makes you feel worthless. Takes the my way or the highway thought process. Not a people person and talks behind others backs. Lacks leadership qualities and the external market is going to find it hard to find talent as it is now well known it is not an employer of choice which it once was. Lot of good people leaving weekly and not being replaced.

    Advice to Management

    Review the employee satisfaction survey and what the people are saying. Morale is at a low that I have never encountered at any organization. Bring it back to 5 star rating before it is too late. Supposed to be a people first organization but EBITA seems to take priority but with the wrong people it is a moot point as it will not be achieved. Australia has changed to the point now that everyone is now entertaining new...

    Pros

    Frequent flyer miles available if you want them. Relocation packages also available. Good if you just want to pick up a pay check. Work/life can be good if you can tolerate the occasional micromanagement.

    Cons

    Terrible management styles and overall culture with ever increasing middle management. No idea how to execute on strategy. Many of the verticals are dysfunctional.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in real talent in the management areas, empower them properly, and set realistic targets. High targets need proper talent in all areas across the business.

    Pros

    great colleagues / friends at work, regular communication from leaders via weekly check ins, monthly regional calls and global townhalls. A company that not only measures itself on financial results but also people development and social responsibility. Entrepreneurial feel, sales led company, things happen fast, leadership very responsive

    Cons

    things happen fast! - you have to keep up, but that's the technology industry in general

    Pros

    Employee Concentric Approach overall.

    Core Values are fading out. Local leadership styles are contracting what higher management tends to create as a culture.
