    Former Employee - Senior Software Engineer in Cedar Rapids, IA

    I worked at Trapeze Software full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    - Exciting software design opportunities - Good people - Casual Workplace - Individual offices with a door, rather than cubicles, however, 2 people per office - Free premium Coffee

    Cons

    - Thin requirements for efforts - Often unrealistic time constraints for jobs - Slow communications channel for requirements and feedback - Pay raises are small, if at all, and don't directly relate to effort put forth - Unrealistic goals used to attempt to measure performance

    Advice to Management

    Eliminate disconnected goals since they are always changing and instead have direct report managers review along with peer reviews by coworkers to assess each employee's yearly performance. It seems like every few years the yearly review process changed and became less and less useful each time. It might be better if direct report managers, who know their employees, would review or rate each team member. Then, to make...

      I have been working at Trapeze Software

      Pros

      telecommuting opportunities; not many pros to report unfortunately.

      Advice to Management

      Hire experienced/accomplished leaders with emotional intelligence, not task managers.

      Pros

      Worst working environment for employees because they have to visit Sudheer as project manager one and all one , harder to face his rubbish pressure , soft part is owner Aswini , but sudheer is terrible , my 40000 rupees has been cheated by company management

      Advice to Management

      make many project managers for projects , no monopoly should be there, arrange separate accommodation for the managers and employee, and take weekly review of employee , my 40000 rupees has been cheated by company management

      I worked at Trapeze Software full-time

      Pros

      A predictable, consistent and seemingly stable company. Good at increasing annual fees. Many customers are locked in and seem to be okay with legacy technology.

      Cons

      One of the least innovative businesses I've ever seen. Feels like working in the '90's. Managers don't know how to build new products. Relies way too heavily on legacy tech. Main business seems to be acquisitions, not software development. Execs avoid making decisions wherever possible...easier to blame junior staff.

      Advice to Management

      Stop talking about 'organic growth' and actually invest in it.
