    Pros

    Great benefits, great company to work with. Lot's of mobility within the company, amazing work life balance!

    Cons

    Not a lot of downsides other than a few specific individuals now and then, most of them don't last long so not a huge concern.

    Advice to Management

    try to benefit individuals to help motivate, team benefits are not great motivators.

    Pros

    Very relaxed environment and company culture as it compares to industry competitors. In my experiences, I've met and worked with many talented individuals. Much of the senior leadership is very interested in growing talent internally.

    Cons

    Managed service provider.... Took 10 days for a simple program to be pushed to my Desktop. Coming from another large Fortune 500 company, Ive noticed monumental differences in site support.

    Pros

    Great team environment, clear path for growth, and allows you to work on your own projects on a day-to-day basis.

    Cons

    Hard to understand the vision of the firm on a daily basis. Sometimes main sales techniques and success stories get lost in translation. Feel a bit of distance from other corporate offices.

    Pros

    Strong professional leadership that is moving the company in a stronger more focused direction. The work-life balance is very reasonable and the benefits program is on the generous side.

    Cons

    Company remains in a state of flux with a variety of key strategic directions yet to be fully articulated. Current leadership appears strong - but the uncertainty creates some pause that needs to be eliminated quickly.

    Advice to Management

    Embrace the culture of old (CIQ). Eliminate much of the P&C control that stalls and delays innovation and be more open to using partners to maximize the value of the data and to allow 3rd parties to innovate with us.

    I've been at CIQ for 3 years and will be there for a while more!

    Pros

    Employee-centric - willingness to invest in the person for the benefit of the business. Solid leadership with several difference makers. Probably the right work/life balance. Excellent IP with several unique and proprietary data sets. New management from the outside looks promising.

    Cons

    Less intense than past experiences. Firm is likely about to see significant organizational change that often results in irrational behavior.

    Advice to Management

    Execute the structural changes you know the business needs. Everything is in place to do that and while change is hard, opportunities like this don't occur often - seize the day!!

    Pros

    The people in the office are excited to come to work. We are having a record year in 2014, and us younger team members feel we have great leaders and mentors.

    Cons

    If you aren't going into the sales path it might be difficult to move up quickly.

    Advice to Management

    Consider increasing compensation for teams that over perform.

    Pros

    Decent pay, (sometimes) interesting content, not too taxing.

    I work as a proofreader for the transcription department. I listen to the audio of a conference call or presentation and check the accuracy of a transcription. Pretty straightforward, easy work, and most of the calls are pretty interesting. The work is cyclical, tied to quarterly earnings reports of publicly-traded companies, so it's not full time (more like 26-32-ish weeks out of the year), but when there's work, there's plenty of work. Pay is decent but it would be hard to have this be a single job. That's not their fault though, they're very upfront about the amount of work, and most of their people do this as a second/side job so they're usually pretty understanding so long as you stick to what you promise.

    Cons

    Not a full-time job but can eat up too much time when it's busy.

    Advice to Management

    The coaching opportunities were a good idea and should be continued/expanded.
