    I have been working at The CBORD Group full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I've been a CBORD employee for over a year and I really like the direction we've taken with our company culture. I was very skeptical at first in light of new management coming in a while back but you can feel the positive change. The one-on-one monthly meetings between employees and their managers is a smart idea.

    Cons

    Sometimes the workload can be daunting. Lots of internal software being upgraded to new platforms.

    The DREAMculture promotes a newer model of employee performance reviews where team members and managers can check in monthly and communicate. Gone are the days of daunting annual performance reviews and old rating systems. Team members have responded positively to this and other changes.

    I have been working at The CBORD Group full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    I work with great people, my team and I get along great, we all have diverse personalities and back grounds, the DREAM culture facilitates individuals to bond. I too read the reviews on Glassdoor before I started a few months ago, my interviews went great, and I immediately had a good feeling about this opportunity. Facts: I was not there before management changed; I have been here since April 2018; I am very happy at CBORD. Everyone pitches in during hard times, I was happily surprised with Management (Jim Hoefflin the President, Vice Presidents and my managers) all worked hard at supporting us when we needed it the most, no task is too small for anyone. The company is people and family oriented, we all have moments is life when family comes first, and CBORD will back you up.

    Cons

    If you want a job from 9-5 and wait for the clock to do its job, you are looking to work for the wrong company, don't even bother interviewing. Employees work hard and give their 120% and more to make sure customers, other departments and processes are accomplished the best they can. This is a software company, we render service and sell products. The IT World moves fast, so get use to change or move on.

    The change management process has been successful at CBORD. Senior Leaders interact with team members, they don't just sit in offices. Work-life balance is valued as is hard work and accountability--from senior leaders to employees.

    I have been working at The CBORD Group full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Excellent people to work with throughout the company, both management and regular employees. Ability to work from home for some teams. I've worked for companies both large and small, CBORD isn't perfect, but it is the best that I've worked for.

    Cons

    Salary could be a little better. We have lost some good people partly because of this.

    Pros

    If you are bored here, you aren't paying attention. There's a lot of opportunity to expand your reach. Even if your assigned tasks are simple (which is rare here), you should be able to get involved in discussion and actions that will improve the work process. Get involved, and you'll be noticed. Management is driven to succeed but generally sympathetic to individuals. A great many software technologies are in use - there's always opportnity to learn more.

    Cons

    2016-2017 brought a lot of change and some layoffs - not generally due to financial stress, but rather, due to change in priorities.

    I have been working at The CBORD Group full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    From day one, my teammate have been instrumental in getting me up to speed. Although training is hard to come by, there are many opportunities to obtain training by asking questions, access to online training is available if asked. Benefits package is pretty fair so far, there could be some additional offerings like purchasing an extra week of vacation. Overall, I enjoy the work life balance, the open door culture, the transparency of the status of the company. The on-boarding process is one of the best I have witnessed/ shared with others.

    Cons

    lack of sufficient product training. need to strengthen agile scrum teams

    Pros

    The CBORD culture is focusing on the customer, working hard and having fun ... coming into the office makes for a pretty great day. The people are very smart and passionate about the products we build and the difference we make in our customers' lives. New leadership in the Engineering group has sparked some high tech innovation to replace legacy platforms and innovation is encouraged and rewarded consistently. Parent Company is Roper Technologies and there are some pretty great perk associated with that.

    Cons

    There are some legacy platforms for key products that require heavy lifting to bring up to speed technologically but some people might be very pumped about that challenge.

    Pros

    Lots of exciting new projects and products driven by a highly motivated management team. Company growth is improving, the culture is modernizing, and the people are motivated to make great things happen.

    Cons

    The tight labor market and recent changes have left many holes in historical knowledge and experience.

    I have been working at The CBORD Group full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Niche market that has a long cycle time to respond to lack of support and innovation. expensive to switch vendors so clients locked in for a while. The new CEO is cashing in on that.

    Cons

    Multiple rounds of deep layoffs (starting in a year of records new sales), in order to prop up the new CEO's ego and cash flow to Roper. Dropping many long term employees intending to replace with cheaper staff in an 'Innovation Center' that never happened because we couldn't find a sucker to take over a gutted engineering team. This led immediately to a toxic environment, outsourcing development due to entire teams being gutted, and inability to rehire competent staff. Company ratings understandably dropped way down to 2.1. Senior leadership says this is all just due to 'sour grapes' and 'resistance to change'. Behold a sudden spike to 3.8! DON'T BE FOOLED, we have been repeatedly aggressively instructed that we need to submit highly positive reviews to Glassdoor, or leave the company...
