Current Employee - Senior Software Engineer in Norwalk, CT

Pros

Great work-life balance.
Great opportunities for professional grow if you are in the right team/product.
Good medical and dental insurance.
Good corporate culture.
Good perks, free lunch in cafeteria on Mon-Thur, snacks, sodas and so on.

Cons

Some products/groups are using very outdated technology and many others are using just outdated.
Too much emphasis on 'loyalty' - time with company, it's blocking career opportunity for experienced engineers from the 'industry'.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be more open for outside influence.

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee  in  New York, NY
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in New York, NY

    Pros

    * Good benefits: 401k, healthcare, free lunch four days a week.
    * Good location in Midtown.
    * Quiet office. You get your own cubicle with lots of space.
    * The technology stack, while antiquated in some areas, is very well organized.

    Cons

    * The work gets boring very fast. There is often not enough work to do. You will see people surfing the web most of the day.
    * The office environment is very awkward. Everyone is separated into cubicles, with managers in offices far away. You rarely interact with your co-workers. I've gone days without speaking to anyone. Collaboration with your team is minimal. Everyone is given their own project and sent to work on it by themselves.
    * Don't expect to be challenged here. After one year, I had only ever worked on one project.
    * Working harder/faster gets you no where. All that ends up happening is you'll have lots of free time to sit around doing nothing.
    * Year end bonus is zero.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Challenge your employees and keep them busy. Foster a more collaborative environment.
