A former user shares his experience on g2.com, "Alfresco's code is very complicated. There are no easy ways to "upgrade". You have to basically start over so any custom code you have has to be deployed after the upgrade. Any small errors take the whole system down. I worked for a very high profile broker-dealer that depended largely on Alfresco for content.
PSE Premier Service Engineer Alfresco Software (Current Employee) says"To much chaos, staff turnover is extremely high, I am on my 4 manager in 4 years. Company has been purchased by private equity firm with no long term interest in the product or its employees. They have already indicted their interest in reselling the organization"

Monkey Grinder (Current Employee) says"Working at Alfresco may be perfect for those who want to work part time which is what a lot of employees do and managers look the other way. Even though there is no company policy, Fridays are generally considered the start of the weekend. Salary increases are nonexistent unless you're in a sales or management position. Health benefits are expensive and takes up a lot of your pay if you have a large family to support on one salary. Politics rule and the favorites go to Club. Commute is nonexistent which is the best part and able to focus on tasks. Small circle of employees who are the CORE of the company and who you can rely on to get help or information. Management seems to be doing a good job but you can tell they are running with their hair on fire mode. Overall not a bad company to work for.PeopleNo cost of living, no raises unless you are in a sales or management position."
