Application Consultant (Current Employee) – Livonia, MI – April 16, 2018
Growing pains in a "young" company. Not much training, but it's getting better. They do work well with work/life balance, and the lower management tries hard to help team members. It seems to be too top heavy in management.
Implementation Consultant/Project Manager (Former Employee) – Work at Home – August 13, 2018
Workforce Software has unbelievably good employee's that are left almost completely in the dark by management. If you're a SW developer this is a great opportunity. Everyone else is basically expendable.
Can't really think of any unless you're a SW developer.
Senior Global IT Projects (Current Employee) – Livonia, MI – February 20, 2018
I enjoyed my time working at WFS, the clients were the best, the software solution was pretty smart. The biggest problem with WFS is the lack of personnel. The company keeps hiring more directors, VP, and senior VP. They lack enough technicians to support, implement and handle maintenance. It seems the company is trying to get as many clients sign up and getting ready to sell the company to SAP without a huge backlog of implementations.
Productive and fun workplace, but Constant employee cuts are destroying morale.
Project Coordinator (Former Employee) – Livonia, MI – February 5, 2018
Good work environment, generous time off. Opportunities for advancement are limited. Key people are spread too thinly, due to growing pains and firing/hiring spurts Constant employee cuts are destroying morale. Each department seems to do their own thing and nothing is cohesive or consistent across the company Directions seem to shift to often. Hiring like crazy one year and laying off the next year. Constant cycles of hiring and layoffs with little to no visible strategy Many talented employee have quit Talented, hard-working people are laid off while others who frequently accomplish so little Workload has ballooned with fewer people Entire staff is punished with lower bonuses when a few key departments have dropped the ball. Get cut-throat office politics and backstabbing under control.
Unprofessional Management - cannot be trusted outside of technical product area. Awful sales agreements - cannot be delivered on time or within budge
Tools Development Team Manager (Former Employee) – Livonia, MI – January 30, 2018
This is a company that uses and develops leading edge software. The pace is very fast. This is both the best and the hardest part of working there. The people there are generous with their knowledge and skills.
Sr Implementation Consultant (Current Employee) – Michigan – January 24, 2018
Days are laden with constant meetings, therefore the actual work needs to be completed after hours. Occasionally this is understood, however this is a the constant state. The work force is quiet diverse in culture and age, the compensation plan is fair yet they have a hard time holding on to experienced talent. There is a high level of turnover. Workforce works hard to be involved in local charities and does great work in this area, Christmas for the less fortunate, backpacks for school, partnering with local school to provide mentor ship.
Accounting/Marketing Intern (Former Employee) – Livonia, MI – June 12, 2017
The hours were very flexible. Management was accessible and responsive, and coworkers were generally welcoming, friendly, and collaborated readily. It's a software company, which should speak volumes of the culture. The building is in a good location and is quite clean and well-maintained. There also seems to be good mobility within the company.
Manager (Former Employee) – Livonia, MI – June 5, 2017
Initially I was given a free hand by the founders of the company, to do what needed to be done. Eventually, the company was sold to an investment firm, a new CEO was brought in and the founders were pushed out of the business.
Project Manager State of Rhode Island Impl (Former Employee) – Providence, RI – October 7, 2016
Working with the folks at WorkForce (implementation consultants, IT resources, PMs, and ACs) in Livonia, MI helped me become a better project manager and business analyst.
Typically, my day involved corralling the implementation team at the client (State of RI) and emphasizing the need for better participation by the State. Not only did I keep the State on-track, I kept the resources at WorkForce on-track, and we worked together to efficiently move the project closer to the finish line.
Though the scope of the project was beyond what was in the SOW, I'm happy to have had the opportunity to work with such great people at WorkForce. They're very professional, and the culture there is always emphasizing improvements in client servicing.
I hope to have the opportunity to work with WorkForce employees again, and even though the company is growing, they're managing their growth professionally and take care of their employees.
Great firm to work at from an outsider's point of view, as I was not an employee but traveled to MI and experienced the culture in-person.
Senior Project Manager, Professional Services (Current Employee) – Irvine, CA – May 4, 2014
WFS is a very good place to work with some very good people. The product and underlying technology cannot be beat in its niche - workforce management. Company growth has been incredible and only keeps getting bigger and better. Unfortunately, there have been quite a few growing pains with many issues that still need to be addressed. Potential is excellent, but management has been slow to realize it and fix issues to make everybody more productive. Overall though the people are great to work with and everybody really does try to succeed.
Excellent growth and potential, hardworking people, easy to talk to management
Poor HR, no general training, performance reviews are random
