    what a joke

    Analyst (Current Employee) New York, NY

    Prosgood intro to investing and stock analysis ....reasonable hours (9-5) ...rank and file workers are generally nice (there is a sense that the r&f are in a terrible situation together - which breeds a strange camaraderie)

    Consboth upper and middle management are AWFUL ...competitor Morningstar started 40 years or so later than Value Line - yet the former has a market cap of $3.4 billion (while Value Line is BELOW $90 million) ...weak analysts are coddled (for the control) and a small group of managers (who don't even seem interested in investing) run the show. ...company blames its struggles for the growing amount of stock research that's available free to investors - it's a joke

    Advice to Senior Managementput the company up for sale (maybe the name has some residual value) ...hope that private equity or some other entity bites ...then fire the CEO, as well as the top and middle managers

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

    Value Line has missed the boat...and so should you

    Developer (Current Employee) New York, NY

    ProsNice people to work with over all. Mostly very young due to the low salaries.

    ConsThe Product Development and Technology teams are taking one step forward and two steps back. Senior management does not have the skills or insight to revamp this very, very old fashioned company. Company rules are archaic. Factory standards in a high tech environment do not translate. Locking coffee room up from 9-10am is just weird, and so is this company. Politics are vicious and a true path forward is not present. Too little too late for value Line. Loosing customers by the second. I don't blame the customers. Expensive product for something you can almost get for free anywhere on the internet.

    Advice to Senior ManagementYou guys are not as smart as you think you are. Higher smarter Development Manager who has a clue and is not so pompous. Get with the times and don't dock pay for a minute being late, and give people access to coffee in the morning.

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

    A Technology Start Up Within in a Traditional Company

    Developer (Current Employee) New York, NY

    ProsAccess to cutting edge technology, ground up approach to infrastructure, flex time, career growth, innovation. New knowledgable leadership.

    ConsTechnology is run very differently than the rest of the company. The other departments are still running the Old Value Line way. Politics of being involved in a turnaround.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTake the lead from technology!

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
