Current Employee - Director, Product Marketing in Portsmouth, NH (US)

I have been working at Bottomline Technologies

Pros

A leader in a critical market space
An organization that recognizes when pieces to it's product/solution portfolio are missing and purchases market leaders to close the holes
Provides the opportunity to learn and offers recognition and reward for success
Great benefits plan
Very supportive when personnel have a family-related crisis

Cons

Not for everyone. Like GE, Apple, and other leading orgs, expects "A" players and performance. That means "work/life balance" isn't always balanced BUT, like the other companies mentioned, management is putting in the same effort and hours.
Growth has been short-term and extensive - not all middle management has grown at the same speed

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Make sure resource levels and organizational leadership match the portfolio growth and expanded internal and external expectations
Recognize that the company wins when all the architects of success share in the rewards - it drives the organization to further excellence.
Corporate longevity is only a positive if personal growth matches corporate growth - managerial excellence at all levels needs to match corporate goals

    Disregard for employee success; knee jerk management actions.

    Pros

    - good product portfolio, although trailing competitors in some aspects
    - excellent technical support; very responsive to customers
    - good benefits

    Cons

    - short-term view of employees - "what have you done for me lately" attitude
    - poor training program for new employees - more like baptism by fire
    - management did not support employees
    - management would talk about employees behind their backs
    - employees viewed as expendable

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in employees training and growth. Find ways to support them instead of undercutting them. Decide on a strategy and stick with it. Changing strategies and laying employees off every 6 months is no way to be a successful company over the long term.
