I have been working at AccuWeather.COM full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

- Flexible work schedule
- Plenty of opportunities to grow professionally via training and conferences
- Chance to work with many of the cutting edge companies and technologies
- Very competitive on salaries and benefits as compared to other IT positions in the area
- Challenging work environment to meet the growing needs of our major partners

Cons

- With so many active projects, it can often been confusing as to which one is the highest priority.
- Working in a department that has to support systems 24/7 can result in dealing with problems after normal working hours.
-While there have been significant improvements in certain benefits (such as the health coverage), there is still room for improvement in other areas.

    Pros

    As stated, for the most part, the coworkers I've had over the years have been great.
    Recognizable company for a resume.
    Decent entry-level stepping stone.

    Cons

    Poor communication company-wide.
    Below median pay for mid-level employees.
    Middle management completely inconsequential, executive level micromanages.
    Job security is nil due to nearby Penn State. Constant crops of new grads looking for any work will accept low salaries.
    Pay freeze amidst horn tooting of LARGE donation by president to have new Penn State weather center named after him.
    Managers with little to no background in what they are managing.
    Large-scale turnover.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When you hire excellent employees, pay them what they deserve and allow them to improve the company. Do not chase them away for not toeing the line to outdated ideas.

    Pros

    AccuWeather can be a place that allows flexibility with family and as long as the work gets completed correctly and on time few people complain

    Cons

    Theft. Theft of lunches. Come on! Is it necessary to eat others food. We are all struggling with bills. There wouldn't be as many lunches brought in if there was more money in our pockets.
