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

    Pros

    Nice place to work when starting your career. Work with some really intelligent people, always an opportunity to build something new.

    Cons

    Pay is below market average. Yearly increase is based on cost of living, not merit. Unable to move up in company unless you are friends with someone.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop treating employees like numbers.

    I worked at Intersections full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The people I worked with were nice.

    Cons

    So much talk about upgrade, and so much planning, but zero execution. Worked for one of the worst managers you can ever imagine. Very unorganized, condescending, and just an overall horrible person. I wondered why I ever worked under those types of conditions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make better choices as to who you make a manager.

    Good learning atmosphere for a couple of years. You are a moron if you stay any longer than that.

    Pros

    Potential to learn new technologies.
    Decent commute.

    Cons

    Poor management and planning.
    Unnecessary computer restrictions in terms of what you can and cant do, can and cant use.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop yelling "fire" for every project coming down the pipe. Communicate more effectively with your employee's in terms of what the project plans are. Hire good project managers. Ask your employee's what their input is or suggestion for choosing X over Y.

    Not the greatest work place, lots of favoritism from manager(s) to employees

    I have been working at Intersections full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    good coworkers, mainly because management has a tendency to have favorite employees who get all the perks, everyone else (peons) have a common interest in that the management doesn't bother looking in their direction nor listen to their insights

    Cons

    management favoritism, secret meeting among manangement, not much room for advancement except for the favorite employees

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs to allow advancement amongst the department rather than single individuals, these individual gets more recognition and advancement in their career fields because you single them out and allow more exposure to technology. Everyone is only able to administrator their work rather than architect for the company

    I have been working at Intersections

    Pros

    The compensation package is OK.

    Cons

    Rampant favoritism, witness many ethnic jokes/slurs among staff and management. even though workforce is very diverse. Very little communication between management and workers despite many meetings. Huge learning curve, similarly tasked departments feuding, very little patience or training from management. Secretive, distrustful culture; contractors treated as pariahs

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communicate to the plebians!

    I have been working at Intersections

    Pros

    Decent benefits package, good amount of vacation time, and nice co-workers. You are not micro-managed, which is always nice. As long as you get your work done, you don't have anything to worry about.

    Cons

    We have been on mandatory overtime for months now, and everyone is completely burnt out. The pay is terrible for the work that we have to do, and on top of that they don't give any incentive for company loyalty. Communication between management and the employees is lacking sometimes. There is unfortunately some favoritism among management, and it makes it difficult, if not impossible, for employees to relay problems they are having with a particular individual.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire people!!! We are stretched thin as it is, and once one of the few of us that are looking for new jobs is successful, it is only going to get worse for the people that are stuck there. I understand that changes are coming that are going to make the system better, yada yada yada, but after months with no improvement, its obvious to everyone that its not working.
    Also, showing some appreciation for all the work we are doing right now would make a huge difference in company morale. Something as simple as a company lunch would do wonders!
