    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Ellucian full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Since there are so few employees to do so much work, you can get experience with an incredible range of technologies and platforms if you are motivated. Higher education is an incredible industry and the clients are amazing.

    Cons

    Management is just awful. There is no other way to say it. There is no training provided, which is detrimental in the technology field. Development is stagnant, what little they do release is definitely not cutting edge.

    Advice to Management

    When your employees leave, conduct exit interviews. Don't make your employees beg to receive benefits you owe them. Reinstate UDC week. Quit laying off good employees while keeping dead weight.

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

    Pros

    Our paychecks are not bouncing! These two companies (SGHE and Datatel) used to be great companies to work for, now the combined company is bottom of the barrel.

    Cons

    Awful morale, employees are being used and abused, salaries are frozen, benefits are being eroded, expected bonuses are not being paid out. Travelling consultants are being nickeled and dimed to death. Management claims to be investing in employee education, but that is only lip service. Good people are being laid off, better people are resigning on their own.

    Advice to Management

    Replace the CEO before the company totally fails. The current CEO is in over his head, he might have been effective running a 500 person domestic company, but he has no business running a 2500 person international company. His lack of experience shows -- why can't the BOD or the PE firm see this?

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

    Pros

    Hands-off middle management, ability to work remotely, decent benefits

    Cons

    A lot of uncertainty about the future of our pay, positions, and benefits after the merger. A lot of internal PR (sending employees Ellucian oven mitts?) to help establish the brand doesn't ease the tension.

    Advice to Management

    Quit wasting money on oven mitts, barbecue rub, pens, bags, shirts, and other promos. Make up for it with retaining benefits and fair pay raises.
