    I worked at Encore Software full-time

    Pros

    They allow you to work from home

    Cons

    You have to work from home because they won't spend money on an office. Constant layoffs and departures. They've been in downsizing mode since acquiring the company a year ago. The new ownership has absolutely no understanding of how the software business works.

    I worked at Encore Software

    Pros

    You get paid to do your job. You have a job which many don't have. You can work hard and be rewarded with a layoff. Thank you CM & Encore.

    Cons

    Senior management was lazy and I feel we were underpaid and overworked during my time with the company. Cal Morrell is not someone I would work with or under again. He was incompetent and many felt he failed to do his job properly which is why I think we got laid off. His poor judgement caused many problems for us and eventually led to job losses while he walked away golden. I really thought Encore was a great place to be when I started but my job was eliminated along with many others. I blame management's incompetence for all of it and hope the new team does a better job.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Encore Software

    Pros

    I enjoyed the work environment and some of the folks I worked with. We had a nice office over by LAX which was fun to work at. The pay was okay but management was stiff and stodgy about benefits, time off, etc.

    Cons

    Management was poor and there was no room for growth in this dying business. Our games were average at best and there was absolutely no motivation to innovate. Basically a software sweatshop developing stuff no one buys from stores anymore. Imagine that????

    Pros

    fair benefits some good management

    Cons

    pay scale not up to scale. Care more for the employees that have been with them for a long time and do what you can to keep them instead of laying them off or telling them they have to take a $20k pay decrease
