    I worked at Axway full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Very good work life balance.
    Possibility to work from home 2 days per week
    Flexible working hours
    Nice tech stack. Java, Python, Docker, AWS, Linux
    People are very nice, I didn't hear any fights or shouting
    Company is listening to what people have to say and takes action
    Parties and nights out are organized regularly
    Dublin management is very approachable and easy to talk to. It feels like they are your team mates.

    Cons

    To meet some regulations required by some very important customers, the development process is slow. Too many steps until the code reaches production.
    Not clear what is the company mission.

    Advice to Management

    When communicating to employees use a simpler language. Try not to sell that much and make the message you try to transmit simpler and concise.

    I worked at Axway full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - nice colleagues
    - work from home policy

    Cons

    - strategy changes every few weeks
    - extremely siloed environment (teams master reinventing wheels on a daily basis)
    - very poor system and software engineering practices (stay away if you are keen to learn and advance in the craft)
    - red tape everywhere, bureaucracy, very slow moving (hey, it's French company!)
    - product owners and managers sound clueless in regard to software products development, modern development techniques and engineering practices
    - too many people are suffering from "prima donnaism"
    - very high turnover rate

    Advice to Management

    French management don't take advise. "They know best!"

    I have been working at Axway full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Working hard to align a diverse portfolio into a congruent suite of products.

    Plenty of scope for career growth, travel.

    Cons

    A lot of legacy bureaucracy procedures and processes that need to be reviewed or abandoned. The diverse development centers can be a boon to creativity but they need to be managed better so that people believe they're all on the same team.

    Advice to Management

    Keep communicating the goals and make sure that it's more than just powerpoint slides. Keep the message consistent and reward the workforce as this goals are approved.

    Pros

    Flexibility on the type of work / technology you want to work with. And management that supports that type of exploration efforts. Great Work Life balance. The fastest on-boarding process I have seen.

    Cons

    Quiet a few of the developers like to keep the floor lights of. So at the end of the day your eyes are quiet tired out.

    Advice to Management

    A brighter office with the lights on :)

    Pros

    Its a great company with good pay and good benefits.

    Cons

    You could end up reporting to some new mid level mgt people in the organization who can be real micro-managers and they bring along people with that mindset. So make good choices.
