Cincom Sucks Customer Reviews and Feedback

From Everything.Sucks

Cincom Systems, Inc., is a privately-held multinational computer technology corporation founded in 1968 by Tom Nies, Tom Richley, and Claude Bogardus. The company's best-known product today is named Total (trademark TOTAL). Decades after Cincom's founder left IBM, the latter posted "Cincom was the original database company."

Cincom has a poor management and product engineering, sales culture is a toxic environment, a former employee shared a review at indeed.com

"This is a software company that hardly sells any software. They are living off the maintenance revenue of their legacy software which is no longer sold. The management runs the company like they actually do sell lots of software. The marketing department is gigantic with marketing folks globe-hopping like they are hugely successful. The sales culture is toxic and sales management very paranoid. The hardest part of the job was actually being able to do it. The internal politics truly prevent the company's success. The best part about Cincom is some its people."

Senior Account Executive (Former Employee) says

"Management switches faster than most people change underwear.convenient parkingAll image, no substance"

Director (Current Employee) says

"This company has potential, but management is only focused on keeping their jobs. A few good products, lack of strategy and vision. When they have consultants come in to review the company and issues, they only have the consultants meet with the problems, not the potential solutions.there's potentialmanagement is clueless"

Global CPQ Product Marketing Manager (Former Employee) says

"Outed company culture, technology, and staff. No room for advancement. Management that doesn't understand what they are responsible for. Culture is toxic."

IT Operations Supervisor (Former Employee) says

"My Experience at Cincom was over a 22 year time period. I saw the company go through a lot of changes. The first 15 years it was awesome. Great atmosphere and promoting from within. It felt like a family. Unfortunately, the last 7 years I was there it went downhill and I eventually left due to the spiral down effect of management and polices.Decent wagesManagement showed no direction"

Anonymous (Former Employee) says

"This company needs to work on new UIs for its software. Some products look like they're from the 90's. Product changes take too long. Too many people related to the owner work here which greatly influences who gets promoted. Many more men than women in management roles.People on my team were greatUpper management needs to work on listening to others"

LEAD SOFTWARE ENGINEER (Current Employee) says

"The company has been sunsetting their products for a several years. The employees have been essential in working to assist clients in upgrades and new product considerations; however, the client base is declining. As the clients decline, the work load is also declining as well as the challenges and opportunities within the product lines. I have learned a great deal about internal software and external client support. I am not meeting my personal challenge of maintaining challenging work due to this situation and prefer to move to an environment that is more visible and productive where I can utilize my current skill sets as well as gain knowledge and experience on newer skill sets. I prefer to work on products with a team of smart technical peoples to create or update projects with a longer more success oriented life span.Some work at home availability.Lack of challenging and exciting work load."
