    Positive energy throughout the company. Clear strategic vision. Impressive and trustworthy leadership. Co-workers friendly and intellectually stimulating. Creativity encouraged. Great products. Aggressive.

    Not the place to work if you are just looking for a job. Those that don't share the passion for our work may feel like outsiders and don't seem to work out too well.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    With the growth we are experiencing, please continue to hire talented individuals. Don't lower expectations to fill a void. Appreciate the flexible work schedule as long as getting the job done atmosphere.

    Pros

    Everyone has an open door policy. Friendly work environment. Breakfast on Fridays. 15th Floor Views.

    Sales team is remote, so don't get to interact with them very often. But, that's any company.

    I have been working at Daegis full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Fun work environment, enjoy my co-workers, work-life balance is important to upper management, no one looking over your shoulder - I feel like I'm trusted to do my work.
    Company is growing and headed in the right direction.

    Cons

    In the past there were some employees that were just going through the motions, not finding any joy in their work. That culture has changed and I hope never goes back as it has become an enjoyable environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work. Continue to hire employees with positive attitudes and keep work-life balance in check.

    Interesting Work, good pay, good benefits, get to work with variety of clients in many industries and in different countries. Exposure to different technologies and applications.

    Downturn in revenue and profit has led to constant reorganization and layoffs. Tend to hire management based on past friendships as opposed to actual skill and capabilities.

    Pros

    Great people to work with. Everyone works hard and parties hard.

    After the merger, upper management does not know what to do at all. They fired all the sales guys and then complained that there's no work for the rest of the employee.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't take over a company that you don't know how to run.

    I have been working at Daegis full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Only Pro was that Company was located in the San Francisco City.
    Discounted movie tickets

    Cons

    Upper Management decided to close the San Francisco and New York office and gave 25 days notice to all employees to find new Job because the company could not pay the rent in City.
    They could have moved to a small office around the city but guess company had better plans for in Texas.
    No Motivation in the company. People come to office late and leave early and nobody cares.
    Worst of all no Coffee machine. You can buy coffee downstairs.
    No Employee can plan a long term committed role at the company.
    Technology used in development is outdated and 2-3 years behind the current trend in the bay area.
    Please stay away if you are planning for something long-term

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management keeps changing all the time. Please plan the financials better to locations can be kept open for a long time.
