    Pros

    Free Snacks If you are lucky enough to get an office it means you do not have to show up to work unless Paris execs show up. Obvious HR stocked Glass Door Reviews

    Cons

    Paris office makes the key decisions. They are on a different continent, have no understanding of the business or day to day operations. Will only listen to people who tell them what they want to hear which senior management is well aware of. Senior management are career politicians. All decisions based on their own individual agendas. Instead of fixing core problems, they spend more time trying to work... around them and creating more problems. All the talent was allowed to walk out the door and replaced by offshore resources. Only a few productive individuals left are being worked into the ground. Boston office is a skeleton crew. They keep investing in offshore who will never get up to speed and be productive.

    Advice to Management

    Build a time machine. Go back and undo all the bad decisions.

    Pros

    Massages - Free Snacks

    Cons

    Too many power struggles and disconnect from the IVORY TOWER IN PARIS - the wrong people leading and not listening. Talent dismissed and unrewarded. There is a tendency for leaders to spend most of their time with other leaders in the organization, or other managers, focusing on the "big" issues, or the strategic issues. Those thing are important, of course. However, what happens is that over time, the leader... have become out of touch with the experiences and problems of those that actually get the work done -- often the people at the bottom of the organizational hierarchy who make and design products and services, or who interact directly with the people who pay the bills -- the clients.

    Pros

    Benefits are good. Good co workers. Good location. Free snacks in the kitchen. Many people stay for a long time

    Cons

    Management is not connected to their people. HR is struggling to turn around attitudes which are not good. People are not valued, if you work hard to stand out you are only given more to do

    Advice to Management

    Value your people

    I worked at Linedata

    Pros

    The pros have all gone. Upheaval and senior management changes over the last 5 years have created a scramble for every dollar. A penny pinching expense and travel policy makes time outside the office awful and when in office the toxic and low employee morale is depressing. The fickle, it depends on who you are, work from home policy is imbalanced and used against employees when needed. If you can play politics well,... be one person that can do 4-5 jobs for low pay and no title, don't mind an HR department that gossips and is anti-employee , no raises, shrinking benefits and FREE SNACKS Linedata is for you!

    I worked at Linedata full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Smart, friendly (for the most part) co-workers. Monthly happy-hour, free snacks, outings. Great location. New office space. Liberal work from home policy/great work-life balance (for the most part). Decent amount of time off. Base compensation is pretty middle of the road. Great training opportunities for those that take advantage.

    Cons

    There is a distinct lack of unity between the business side and development side of the company. A series of managerial missteps delayed releasable updates for too long. Revolving door of sales directors/EVPs/SVPs/etc puts serious doubt into employees minds about any type of strategy the company has. Employee attrition in Boston continues to rise year over year, headcount in Tunisian office rises. No clear... career path for anybody. Makes for a lot of sniping and a toxic environment at times. Morale is in the toilet. The work-life balance is a gift and a curse as comfortable employees never look to put in the extra effort which leads to projects slipping. Too much of "that's how we do it" instead of "how do we do it better."

    Advice to Management

    Figure out why people keep jumping ship. Set a plan to course correct, present it to your workforce and stick with it. Find a way to unify the business and development sides of the equation. Find a way to engage your employees and help them grow their careers instead of letting them sit in the same position.
