I have been working at Value Line full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Nice people to work with over all. Mostly very young due to the low salaries.

Cons

The Product Development and Technology teams are taking one step forward and two steps back. Senior management does not have the skills or insight to revamp this very, very old fashioned company. Company rules are archaic. Factory standards in a high tech environment do not translate. Locking coffee room up from 9-10am is just weird, and so is this company. Politics are vicious and a true path forward is not present. Too little too late for value Line. Loosing customers by the second. I don't blame the customers. Expensive product for something you can almost get for free anywhere on the internet.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

You guys are not as smart as you think you are. Higher smarter Development Manager who has a clue and is not so pompous. Get with the times and don't dock pay for a minute being late, and give people access to coffee in the morning.

    Pros

    Access to cutting edge technology, ground up approach to infrastructure, flex time, career growth, innovation. New knowledgable leadership.

    Cons

    Technology is run very differently than the rest of the company. The other departments are still running the Old Value Line way. Politics of being involved in a turnaround.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take the lead from technology!

    I worked at Value Line

    Pros

    Access to good technology; IT middle management aware of issues and trying to do things better.

    Cons

    Frequent long hours, especially weeks before a system release, vicious politics; lack of architectural knowledge, antiquated systems and processes. Long hours are a feature as the CTO believes in working crazy hours during pushes followed by weeks or months of inactivity - worst of both worlds. Some workplace rules, especially as they pertain to attendance are insane; in all fairness, IT is relaxing some of these rules, but only because of the long hours.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Doubt they would listen, but even if they did, the company may be beyond help.
