I worked at Information Builders full-time (less than an year)

Pros

Good location on top of Penn Station.

Cons

Too many psychotic managers who only get promoted to the next level rather than being terminated.

The Webfocus product is awful, better BI products are on the market. Core software really hasn't changed much since the 1970's.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Sell the company and clean house.

    I have been working at Information Builders full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good salary and flexible hours to live a normal life. great place to understand the market and gain industry knowledge. Access to upper management to grow professionally. Great bonus structure for AE's

    Cons

    no opportunity to move up, most managers and leaders in the company have been there for 30+ years and aren't going away until they can't see straight. They have an old way of thinking about sales, sales managers are being demoted to sales rep rather than being fired, disjointed approach to sales and marketing. Stagnant growth year over year

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop holding back innovation, there is an innovative solution offering. Embrace that someone can do it better and not chastise them for "not doing it your old way"

    Pros

    Very talented people to work with.
    If you fit with the company culture there's pretty good job security.
    The company does make an effort to recognize outstanding achievements.

    Cons

    The people are great, but everything about the rest of the company is mediocre, including senior mgt leadership & vision, products, marketing, and ability to execute.
    "Good ol' boys club" mentality. You either fit in or not.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Value the field's input on product development and seriously consider doing something with it.
