    I have been working at Intersections (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Flexible, open and friendly atmosphere. Understand the business like none other. Extremely ethical approach to business

    Cons

    Bleeding talent, sinking business. Management is floundering and looking for new business in the wrong direction (golf courses)

    Advice to Management

    Loss of talent usually manifests itself during crises. Value the talent you have

    I worked at Intersections full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Mid size companies are good to work for because everyone has to get along. Politics are at a minimum. Intersections falls into this area. The work is enjoyable - plenty of diverse things to sharpen your skills on. I gave 3 stars - maybe it should be higher - my concerns are IT budget and long term stability.

    Cons

    I really don't have any. I liked the people there - all of them and to me that was important. I left for better opportunities. If I had to come back - it would be ok - but I'd still have the same concerns.

    Advice to Management

    You all are ok in my books. Management is very fair.

    I worked at Intersections full-time

    Pros

    The people at Intersections are great. Committed and passionate about helping people. There's a lot of flexibility in hours, working at home.

    Cons

    Lots of organizational turmoil. Policies are inconsistent between departments. Some might allow flex time, working at home. Others don't. Rumor mill is very active. Favoritism is rampant.

    Advice to Management

    Salary review, transparency.

    Pros

    Very nice group of people to work with. They allowed you to be very flexible with your time. Allowing their folks to get those odd thing done during work hours like doctor's appointments.

    Cons

    Lack of investment in new technology and training. In the end their were some leadership issues in the IT department. lack of direction and moving staff around into roles they were uncomfortable being in.

    Advice to Management

    Get some real direction

    I have been working at Intersections full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Most of the ppl are really nice to work with although there are some folk who have been there too long that are overly opinionated which ends up being a negative. There is a lot of work to keep you busy. Great from a commuting standpoint especially if you live in the Chantilly area. Mostly flexible management. HR has some fun events to keep the company morale high even though it is generally low.

    Cons

    Confused Business leaders with a lot of verbal 'fluff' but no real direction on company prospects especially given that revenue has been on a constant decline for the past year. There is literally little to no career growth and no hierarchical structure. Very top heavy with managers but no solid training as individuals get promoted to these roles. Pay increases are negligible so try to get in with your upper salary range because don't expect much in terms of raises. Some of the folk who have been there over 6 years are difficult to deal with. They are a distraction as new executive management try to change the process of how things move from one phase to the next within IT. Overall I would not recommend this company to friends as the prospects are not looking good for this company given that we are competing against our own partners in the identity theft market. A lot of knowledgable folk are leaving the company which puts the company in a bigger predicament especially since they are not hiring due to budget cuts.

    Advice to Management

    Be open to ideas and stop pointing fingers. The blame game gets us nowhere. Also communicate with your employees about what the short term and long term goals are for the company. Morale is low because everything is discussed behind closed doors and there is no direction.

    I worked at Intersections full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I can personally attest to the potential for professional growth and learning. The people are hard-working and lifelong friendships can easily be found.

    Cons

    The company has undergone many changes over the last few years, and overall moral has deteriorated. Discord among directors, and senior and mid-level management has created a confusing and stressful work environment. Long hours are expected with little appreciation and work-life balance is no longer something that can be found.
