    I worked at Picis full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Location right Near Lake so you can walk every day and enjoy surroundings. Very close to 93 and 95 .Medic al applications that was used by many great hospitals.

    Cons

    Not going to complain about low level managers because it is not worth it.. They are doing good for last 8 and half year showing top management how great everything and got rid of talent that were actually talent so they will not be challenged. No innovative product is launched, customers are dropping product and replacing with competitors. This company has been sold to many companies and each company who bought... them change the skin so they can quickly sell it to some one . Great product 20 plus year ago but due to lack of vision still using same technology and hence not able to compete. I was there for more than 8 years and once great product gone south and has not changed. Nothing to learn. Low level mangers doing great job showing new top management how great everything is and are very good at it.

    Advice to Management

    Check real performance of all Low level Manager. You need to quickly do marker research and understand need of the existing and future client. Replace old tech. like Power Builder and update Architect and that can only be done if you have technically solid leaders. Don't rely too much on people with domain knowledge because that is their strength meaning they will protect their knowledge meaning stay where are they... are. Yes you need to catchup very quickly.

    Pros

    Counting down the minutes on your last day.

    Cons

    The bovine-scatology and narcissistic displays of transparent insecurity play out ceaselessly in this classic, yet primitive culture. And with all bad players, it rains perpetually from the executive hot air balloon down onto the unwitting peasant class...no surprises here. Middle management, if there is one, isn't concerned, threatened or respecting of its' "masters"; they're haplessly waiting for their next... transit out. Patient lot they are. And with a menagerie of different owners over the years, this company has been kicked around more than a deflated beach ball at an open-air Madonna concert. Don't waste your time with this outfit; you're too important! Anyway, you've been warned.

    I worked at Picis full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Was a great place to work with dedicated and motivated colleagues.

    Cons

    Company sold to Harris. Penny pinchers cut veteran workers to save money.

    Advice to Management

    Should have given workers the option of reduced salary and/or attrition rather than pulling the rug.
