Solid company with near unlimited potential for advancement.
Best for a person looking for advance and willing to overachieve via time and effort.

Culture of insecurity and indirection
Software Developer (Former Employee) –  AtlantaMay 27, 2015
I was a developer there for just under 2 years. The entire time I was there the majority of developers were looking for other work and were completely miserable working on the products that Aptean had recently acquired. Turnover rates are high because the majority of the work is SE which is just glorified customer support. Which would be fine for entry level work if anyone knew anything about the products. Everyone that knew anything about Pivotal has been let go so that SE team is just guessing. Ross SE is just the remnants of the China branch that didn't get laid off. Layoffs happen every quarter, the company will under perform in sales, some higher ups will get fired, a new one will come in and change things up to fix the company, repeat. Most of the development is going to India, those remaining in the Atlanta office are on a short timeline.
Pros
You can get away with doing nothing for a long time.
Cons
Insecurity, no advancement opportunities, the work isn't challenging, and the culture is bad

Worst company of the decade and counting..
Anonymous Ex-employee (Former Employee) –  BangaloreMarch 23, 2013
Until the merger it was one of the best companies to work for. Employee benefits were great and the workplace was amazing.
Customers were happy & ever increasing and product focus was great.
But ever since its APTEAN its a company with no vision, zero transparency, integrity(is no more in their dictionary) and has nothing to offer in the long run for both employees and customers(no proper vision or road map). Job security is negative and their project management sucks.Customers and employees are screwed because of their "changes" and nobody cares. A great company which was screwed because it was sold to a rich scrap dealer
Pros
nothing
Cons

One of the worst company to work.
Consultant (Current Employee) –  BangaloreNovember 28, 2012
being an employee of Consona also knows As Aptean softwares, One of the worst company to work when it comes to management, ethics and work.

Aptean management is very bad, no hike, no work ethics, no technical growth and job threat. there are no job security and management will not stick to one decision always. Pink slip chances are more.

Only good thing is, If you are close to management, you can stay happy with less salary and less learning curve.
Pros
nothing
Cons
lot of

Good experience
Solutions Consultant (Current Employee) –  Atlanta, GADecember 15, 2014
A typical day at Aptean for me includes continuous learning and practice in the software, Based upon the need, I will be on a number of calls and web-based demos on any given day.

Overall, it has been a good experience. Sales management is responsive and "nearby." Recent changes have stirred things up in the company and the environment has become somewhat less enjoyable to work in.

The hardest part has been dealing with constant changes in company strategy. Not all have been bad, but they make it hard to speak with customers.
Pros
large customer base, several loyal customers, lot of resources
Cons
strategy changes, some lack of communication from top down.

1st Job
Senior IT Support Analyst (Former Employee) –  Atlanta, GAAugust 26, 2015
It was my first job. Left when they sold it as a to an individual owner. Fast food life, not the best but as a first job you get to learn a lot. Customer experience can be rewarding and at other times they see you as dirt.
Pros

Cons
Some rude customers

They're trying.
Product Analyst (Current Employee) –  Atlanta, GAJuly 7, 2015
Working at Aptean is an interesting experience. They are very schizophrenic when it comes to corporate goals and themes and they are quick to change strategies and organizational styles.

A company in transition, but was good for me
Software Developer / Aptean (Current Employee) –  Sandy Springs, GAFebruary 25, 2015
Much of my job was maintenance oriented with respect to databases and development servers, but I also got to do some scripting and automation to improve the processes for everyone. I learned about automated building & deploying, managing Windows Servers, VM machines, and SQL Server machines.

I've enjoyed my time there and am sad that I have to be leaving my friends and colleagues after such a brief time.

Inconsistent Management and Expectations
Manager (Former Employee) –  Atlanta, Ga.February 22, 2014
Coworkers were great, but management still hasn't provided a clear vision or set of expectations throughout the organization. There is no real performance management; people are replaced at the drop of a hat based on the whims of senior leadership.
