    I have been working at Interactive Data full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The people you work with are nice and work life balance is good

    Cons

    After the new Private Equity owners bought the company its been horrible. Layoffs and then hire replacements for less. Some people have left the company because its become a toxic place to work for. They like backstabbers and people who throw each other under the bus. The bottom line is they only care about making a profit after they sell the company in a few years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start caring about the employees again, stop overworking people, treat them like numbers and expect them to go above and beyond for you with little or no raise.

    I worked at Interactive Data full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    IDC offers a lot of training. Employees will develop a good knowledge of financial markets/products even w/o a finance background,
    bonus' are paid quarterly,
    benefits are not too bad,
    bedford office is pretty lax in terms of attire

    Cons

    promotions are a joke - based off longetivity (or are pre-deteremined) rather than merit
    old timers are not going anywhere, which leaves only sales positions as possible path up corporate ladder
    little chance of moving to a position in chicago or ny from bedord office. management is not interested in utiizing current employees.
    sales team is not reliable for support....will throw customer service reps under the bus

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    train employees on the products rather than the data,
    be more cognizant of employees who know their stuff and could be assets in the future.
