    Good company but nobody is home

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsGood work life balance, good equipment and software

    ConsNo sense of team, vague management direction, no training, zero growth

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet a training budget and spend it. Individual training is good.

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

    Good for a while

    Senior Sales Associate (Former Employee)
    New York, NY

    ProsGreat co-workers and a fun working environment. Products are ones that clients need and see the value in. 401k match is good.

    ConsAre not a sales organization and therefore treat sales people like nuisances. Managers have a tendency to manage to their superiors instead of in support of those reporting to them.

    Senior Sales Associate (Current Employee)
    New York, NY

    Prosgreat culture, great people, great work/life balance.

    Consupper management doesn't have a good handle on where to take things.

    – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Was a great place to work before management changed

    Business Analyst (Former Employee)
    New York, NY

    ProsCulture, office, work load, time in office (very flexible on when to come and when to leave). As long as you got your work done on time, people were cool with you.

    ConsMgmt switched over in early 2012 leading to huge turnover. New leaders were stuffy and resistant to feedback.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    New York, NY

    ProsGood place to start your career.

    Good company, but best people have left

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsGood company with a few good people remaining. Still have some strong products and solutions but not very innovative anymore. Safe place to work and company isnt going anywhere anytime soon (up or down)

    ConsSenior leadership isnt very strong and product development is lacking. Growth is flatlining.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    A mixed bag, some brilliant people in an environment that is struggling to find direction after internal re-org

    Software Engineer (Former Employee)
    New York, NY

    ProsThere is a lot to learn here, the projects are challenging, and there are some really great people. Working in the heart of downtown Manhattan is pretty cool too.

    ConsThere was a re-org in 2011 and since then a lot of top talent has left the company. This left a knowledge vacuum that the company has been struggling to fill. So far, the upper management has done a horrible job handling this. They are very disconnected and uninspiring. They haven't focused on hiring new, smart people. They've ignored how bad the new outsourced MIS solution is. Basically, the current environment is one where its very hard to get work done.

    Advice to Senior ManagementIt's been 2 years since the re-org. Stop ignoring the problems and writing them off as growing pains. Instead, solicit feedback from all tiers of employees and take meaningful action to correct the issues.

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