    Takes full advantage of employees, then tosses them.

    Manager (Former Employee)

    ProsGreat benefits, 401K, free cable, internet, and phone. Good salaries.

    ConsPoor management. While exempt employees work endless hours to bring projects on-time, management does not appreciate it. Worse, management shows favoritism. And when employees have given 24 years of loyal and satisfactory service, they are laid off without a second thought. I loved the company, and my work, but the fact that many long-term colleagues and I were laid as we got older has left a very bitter taste. The company's values have changed for the worse, and I could no longer recommend it.

    Advice to Senior ManagementLook more closely at middle management, and perhaps have an audit of employees' work.

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

    Decent place to work and great benefits

    Manager (Former Employee)
    Bethpage, NY

    ProsGreat benefits package, tend to pay higher than most local companies, good group of people to work with overall and local (if you live on LI).

    ConsOverworked, upper management needs to get down in the trenches more instead of sitting on their perch, a lot of department managers moved their way up due to years with the company (not that they are necessarily capable of doing the job), no formal training as you move up in management and major politics

    Advice to Senior ManagementToo many managers there are interested in themselves only, not what's best for the company. There is growth opportunity in the revenue generating portion of the business, but growth is stifled in the Corporate environment - needs to be looked at for advancement instead of 'restructuring'.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Great interacting with customers and making new friends with my peers. Large company!

    Technical Support Representative III (Former Employee)
    Jericho, NY

    ProsThey have processes and procedures for everything. Which is great since many companies are all over the place!
    Great benefits, ability to move up in the company;
    Paid holidays.
    Great atmosphere - open.
    Experience with dealing with customers is great and fun!
    I really enjoyed this job, despite some difficulties at that time, I was advised recently that things have changed.

    ConsLost my job because I was on disability (and FMLA). When I filed a complaint, I was advised that if my doctor provided a return to work date, I would not have been laid off. Not Nice!
    I want to come back, I was there 4 years (ended in 2009), but they added a 60 credits or college degree requirement which I don't have. Even though I know I can still do the job they advised me that I would have to get a degree, and would not hire me back even though I was there 4 YEARS.
    --Kissing *ss helps at this job, unfortunately, I'm not too great at that.

    Advice to Senior ManagementHire me back. I'm a great employee. I did not lose my job because of job performance. OH, and I love the company. It annoys me every time I see a truck or commercial that I am no longer associated with the company.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
