    Pros

    As an independent contributor, this role can allow you to be innovative in your own work.

    Cons

    A political black whole of cliques that only look out for their own. Cliques are usually formed my gender, sexuality, marital status, having children, using new staff to intimidate current staff (so new vs. old), etc. It may take a long time to see these patterns but you must stay aware and alert.

    Advice to Management

    Look out for those who have been marginalized by those who only look out for those in their clique and allow their peers and new staff to be rude to current staff.

    Pros

    Great benefits...at a price. The compensation is mainly in the benefits. Remember you can survive on benefits alone.

    Cons

    Not a good place to be everyday. Culture is awful.

    Advice to Management

    There is a truly a culture of mental warfare. It is truly an environment of the have and have not. Clicks truly exist here. Very disappointing to have to work amongst people that are fifty years behind in progress. The company is so full of fluff and will exile anyone that points this crazy out.

    Pros

    Some people love to come in to work here. I feel indifferent but it has good benefits.

    Cons

    I had an abusive manager before. She keeps getting promoted because people like her

    Advice to Management

    Look at turnover, if a manager has a lot of employees turning over maybe the manager is the problem.

    Pros

    Amazing Culture, professional development, flexible, amazing management , very supportive, encourages work/life balance, competitive salaries, promotion from within, diversity & inclusion, rooftop lounge

    Cons

    Very focused on advance degrees for advancement but they pay tuition reimbursement.

    Advice to Management

    Open your minds to recruit talent based on ability rather than letters behind their name. Recruit outside of academia to get more diversity in your pool of intellectual property

    Pros

    Free coffee from k-cup machines all day. Benefits are decent. Most people are friendly and intelligent.

    Cons

    Bad management--lots of crazy supervisors here. Pay is low. No opportunities for advancement. Work/life balance was non-existent on my team. The convoluted database design is the worst I have seen in the history of my career and the horrendous software these people choose to work with is poorly maintained and often non-functional. There is a complete lack of privacy in the work environment. Very stressful environment to work in (underpaid, overworked, no privacy, crazy boss).

    Advice to Management

    I had a creepy abusive manager who has obsessive compulsive personality disorder. She forces everyone on the team to save every email we write so she could scrutinize our grammar and belittle us if we don't write perfectly. She acted like the Apocalypse was impending if she found a minor typo. She also had a habit of sneaking up behind my desk to spy on me while I worked. What a freak! I'd suggest management to take management skills courses to understand what it takes to be a good leader. There are some serious weirdo supervisors in the data side of the organization. I am officially scarred for life after my experience working here.
