    Like stepping back 50 years...

    Designer (Current Employee)

    ProsJob stability is number one here. Benefits are decent but have become very expensive over time (for both management and union). Career growth is possible with some motivation, some luck and a LOT of connections.

    ConsVery very old fashioned, feels like a time warp to the 1960s. Culture and values completely out of touch with reality and their employees needs. Very inflexible should personal issues come up.Technologically behind on the times, making day to day work frustrating.Depending on the department, staff can be very unmotivated, making for a very unproductive work force.

    Advice to Senior ManagementEncourage and respect your peers.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    IT support

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsHours are flexible. Great location but shouldnt' be a reason to stay.

    ConsIf you're a contractor or consultant, leave within a year. Dont think twice of staying longer.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTreat contractors like employees. Everyone is a person. Deserves the same respect.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Very shrewd policy to ruin employees

    Senior Analyst (Current Employee)
    New York, NY

    ProsLaid back culture... You will enjoy working here if you don't want to take challenge and love sleeping at job

    ConsIn the long run, you will lose value and won't be able to compete in outside world

    Advice to Senior ManagementHey management, you should try to develop people within the company and promote them instead of bringing someone from outside to fill a senior level position

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Poor management , no growth opportunity, no advancement for junior employees.

    Auditor (Current Employee)
    New York, NY

    ProsStability, Government sponsored monopoly, and good for lazy people

    ConsNo proper guidance, many unqualified people holding positions and getting position due to favoritism. Makes people lazy. Erodes intelligence out of smart peoples. The culture is very bad. Employees who has been here before 2005 have way more benefit than people started after 2005.

    Advice to Senior ManagementLook outside.. This management just think about fattening its wallet. Politics wont save on doomsday

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
