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

    Pros

    In general, the company is well managed. In general, the company hires good people. In general, the CEO and leadership are better than they have ever been.

    Cons

    Specifically, you will never get a market rate raise at Ellucian. The company has had the most successful past two years in their history according to their CEO, but has taken absolutely no step to compensate the employees for this success. Your manager at Ellucain will be given a tiny 2.6-2.8% pool through which he can give promotions and all raises for his or her team every year. If your team is small, you will be given 2.8%. Not even cost of living for their Reston HQ location. Promotion? Expect 5%, even if it is a major step. Don't forget, any additional raise you get over the pool amount comes directly from your team members pockets, so don't expect anyone to support you on your career ambitions. NO EQUITY. CRAP 3% 401K MATCHING. Again, no equity path for a pre-IPO stage company, which is pathetic. Bonuses: Read the fine print. They are dependent upon reaching ALL financial goals and they wont really share real numbers with you just red yellow or green "indicators". I have been here four years and have ONCE received 100% of the bonus and this was treated as if the company was being kind rather than compensating their employees properly. Ellucian will burden you as a manager with not one yearly performance review, but a series of 8 yearly meetings with each of your direct reports that is so poorly defined and mis-handled by most managers. The system is so complicated they have to run a substantial training system just to get you the basics. It is onerous on managers and they all have to be completed on essentially the same weeks twice a quarter. I have been at Ellucian for 4 years and have had 4 different VPs that I reported to. The good ones are now gone and replaced by the inept and micro-managing. The worst part of all of this is that they disrespect employees constantly by cutting costs in stupid places and lying about the reasons. New open office? To "foster collaboration and team work". Reality: cost savings and most employees moving to remote if at all possible. Getting rid of soda and making the coffee system a giant pain in the butt to actually use? "Going green" or a new "health initiative" for the company. We all see through it and they consistently disrespect us with this stuff. So you want to switch to another position at Ellucian to continue your career growth? Good luck getting your manager to support you. It will cost them more to replace you because they will have to hire at market rate so they will attempt to resist this. Other internal hiring managers are reported by the company to be encouraged to hire from within, but they rarely do are are not incentivized in any real way to do this. You are going to be stuck in your role with crap raises for your entire time at Ellucian.

    I have been working at Ellucian full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Ellucian is a great place to work because the culture is one of empowering employees to do their best and go beyond their expectations. The ability to manage the schedule of a busy family with a rewarding career is priceless. The executive team and people leaders at Ellucian understand that employees are committed to their work as well as their family. There are opportunities for everyone to grow and learn.

    Cons

    Ellucian is a good size company (just over 3000 employees). It can be easy to get lost in the shuffle.

    Pros

    I have the opportunity to work with the best talent with deep institutional knowledge and experience in the industry. Our executive leadership bring their depth and breadth of experience in innovation from Silicon Valley. We are 100% dedicated to Higher Education and best equipped to address the fast changing world of the student-for-life, as they prepare for tomorrow's economy and required skills.

    Cons

    You must have the ability to work in white space, I understand this type of environment isn’t for everyone.

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

    Pros

    Great culture with terrific people who support and seem to genuinely care about each another. I have not worked at a company where people are so willing to help each other. The mission of supporting higher education is personally gratifying and people have conviction in the good of what customers are doing which helps breed this culture. The company does a good job of supporting employees and creating an environment that is welcoming, supportive and collaborative. People work hard, but work-life balance and flexibility is also valued which can be rare in technology companies.

    Cons

    The industry (higher education) as a whole can tend to be late adopters, so the technology is not always on the cutting edge, although it is impactful. Because the industry is changing, Ellucian is having to adapt too, which sometimes leads to turnover of good people who have been at the company for a while. But it’s the right thing to do and management is doing well in managing through changes.
