Pros

The employees are very friendly, work life balance is solid, the work itself isn't overly stressful, nice exposure to management.

Cons

Obviously due to the recent shake ups in the industry and company the atmosphere is pretty strange. There are serious turn over problems, and the uncertainty of where the company will be in a couple years is constantly hanging over everyone.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be frank about the possibilities of what is in store for the company to quiet speculation and uncertainty.

    Pros

    This is based on my 2008 internship (right before the company had to be bailed out) experience. Great people and atmosphere, interesting projects if you're interested in the real estate and financial industries. I was a Java developer, and was happy with the projects I was given. Just the right workload.

    Cons

    Like many big companies, things can be a little slow, although it can be viewed as a plus by some. It never bothered me, but it could bother other people. I'm not sure what the situation is right now with the company, I've heard things became very different after 2008.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The management was great, I have nothing to suggest -- when I was there, I really liked all the managers.
