It's a decent place to work with a good group of people. Ping pong, free food, free drinks and no micromanaging.

Great work life balance
Senior Product Manager (Former Employee), San Francisco, CAMay 29, 2013
Advent is full of good people who work hard to help their customers. The company culture promotes a healthy work life balance which makes it a comfortable place to work. This is a bit of a pro and a con. It is someplace where employees can become complacent if they do not have an innate drive.

Great product, great company, great work/life balance.
Senior Manager (Current Employee), San Francisco, CAMay 24, 2013
Pros: culture and work/life balance
Cons: younger management team could limit upward mobility.
The talent at Advent is everywhere. There are long-tenured employees at the company who are fully-dedicated to Advent's mission. The work/life balance at the company is awesome, but it isn't a stranger to long hours when the work needs to be done.

Convenient job for someone with a family
Project Manager (Current Employee), New York, NYMarch 25, 2013
Pros: work life balance
Cons: management is horrible
If you are a mid level professional Advent is probably not the company for you. Entry level or Senior Management positions seem to be more ideal since there are not great mid level managers or much effort taken to encourage growth for those in a middle level position.
Benefits and work life balance are great and make it hard to leave. The clients are – more... mediocre--depends on how much you enjoy working with high profile financial execs who aren't always very respectful to their vendors. – less

Technical Support, Interface Consultant (Former Employee), San Francisco, CAMarch 11, 2013
This was the most talented group of individualsI have ever worked with. I always felt like I was the dumbest person in the room. The number of talented individuals was overwhelming and tested your intellect every day. I miss this place, would return if I lived in the BAy area again.

Advent might be a great fit if you enjoy the work culture
IT Manager, EMEA (Former Employee), London, ENGApril 24, 2014
I enjoyed the work culture until there was a major change in IT upper management. That management ended up not being a fit for the company and was let go, but not until after the IT department lost a number of excellent contributors.

Productive work environment with a flat management structure
Custom Engineering Services Consultant (Former Employee), DubaiNovember 30, 2012
Pros: flexible working hours and environment
Cons: a lot of changes in the structure in a very short time
Advent allows their employees to work either from the office or from home, as long as you can deliver what is expected before the deadline.

The flat management structure helps anyone to learn more from the higher people and helps reducing the stress the employee usually get from his/her boss.

Advent employees work as one unit, even though they belong – more... to different departments.

It require travel from time to time (which I love) and facing clients from different cultures.

Overall, I enjoyed working at Advent – less
