    I worked at Intersections

    Pros

    There was nothing positive about this company or being employed here.

    Cons

    Management was horrible, out of touch with the workers. The culture and morale was equally poor. Going to work every day was a chore, horrible. I couldn't wait to leave.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Close up shop.

    I have been working at Intersections full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Sometimes people are nice but when you do hard work they don't see it
    Billing department is worse and the management for that department dont care about its people
    they just let you go out the door
    I work so hard there and they just dont care

    Cons

    Its not worth trying to work for the company they treat people bad
    Everybody gossip about people
    Everybody fake

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They need to train people better
    They need to get rid of management that treat people bad
    Stop make people stay late and not compensate sometime dont even like feed the staff when they stay late

    Pros

    Frankly, there is no upside in working for this company

    Cons

    Treatment of employees. I was given a bonus for "doing a great job" then fired 4 months later with my 2nd level manager, at the time, stating it wasn't working out. Frankly, I didn't care for him much and I heard, through others, that the feeling was mutual. I have heard from co-workers that the same tactics were used to let them go. Unless your are absolutely desperate, I would think long and hard.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop treating your people like garbage!

    I have been working at Intersections full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Convenient location that's nearby shops, restaurants, major highways, and Dulles airport

    Cons

    Slow to market and slow to react; Market is now saturated with competitors; Toxic relationship between business and IT; Backstabbing and political infighting; Executive management with overblown egos; Out-of-touch CEO; Mediocre benefits; No 401k matching; No bonus plan; Very limited IT career growth unless someone leaves while very top heavy on the business side; Little time for training, let alone budget set aside for it; Upper/Executive management has little interest in conducting all-hands meetings (but are not honest about them anyway); Worst communication ever including HR and departments not sharing reorg/promotions/new staff announcements,etc.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't put employees on edge by announcing pending layoffs but no timeline; Don't lay off staff without providing any advance notice to direct managers; If a house cleaning of the executive staff is going to be done, don't do a halfway job; The CEO needs to step down if the company wants to reverse the downward spiral;

    Pros

    Met good people, who were knowledgable in their field.

    Cons

    Management were poor at communicating, never wanting to improve processes that were out dated and time consuming. Even utilizing paper copies when a non-print option was available.

    I have been working at Intersections as a contractor

    Pros

    I can't think of any.

    They broke their written agreements and did not pay me.

    Ensure your senior IT managers pay their contractors.

    I worked at Intersections

    Pros

    Close to home, so no traffic issues.

    Got to telecommute at times.

    Less communication barriers when trying to acquire knowledge required for your day to day work.

    Regular free food and useless parties.

    Cons

    Incompetent Managers let senior team members bully the junior ones.

    Favoritism and lack of respect for hard workers.

    Too many sources to be sought help from to accomplish even little.

    Senior Management never bothered to talk to employees and there were no skip level meetings, even if they were held, just as a formality only.

    Uneven distribution of workload and information hoarding issues.

    Nobody cared about process improvement no matter how much a few tried hard.

    Complete lack of respect and trust among team members, which the management never bothered to address.

    The list just goes on...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It is silly to say, but please care about your employees!
