I worked at Information Builders full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

This company has remained fairly stable for an IT company during pretty horrendous economic times.
Good people (for the most part)

Cons

Some of the employees who have been there for eons just skate by with doing the bare minimum.
There is not a lot of room to grow within this company. Many managers who have been there for years seem complacent.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Hire some new blood and become more innovative.

    Decent pay, poor management, lack of strategy, or room for growth.

    I have been working at Information Builders full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Mom and pop feel has its charm.

    Cons

    Too many corners are cut. Too much reliance lately on outside code. Stagnant management. No credence given to anything on the administrative side. Key resources are lacking.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire a Chief Operations Officer and a good General Counsel. Do a top to bottom review of staff and their role/compensation. Get rid of dead wood and rebuild.

    I have been working at Information Builders full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Easy commute, midtown Manhattan. The last big old school style software house standing. Newer product lines have promise. They tend to overpay people to stay on and keep quiet.

    Cons

    Old boys salesforce, stale ideas, stagnant. Waiting for the founder to retire/leave. No real direction or vision. No actual investment at all.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop pretending to be open and actually be open. Stop being so cheap and petty. Publish and provide direction. Allow telecommuting to widen the available workforce. Enter the 21st century.
