I worked at Value Line full-time (less than an year)

Pros

Worked with some great equally dissatisfied people across departments

Cons

Where to begin... rules, rules, more rules... cannot be one minute late 9:01 more than 3x in 3 months or will be docked pay 2% for 6 months, strict dress code, cannot eat at desk, leave any items out on desk including in progress project/work files, picture frame on desk must be company approved, no joke! kitchen closes from 9-11, 3-5 so cannot access coffee or vending machines during those hours, must take lunch between 11-1, expensive and crappy benefits, really bad vacation and sick time policies, zero flexibility, (even during hurricane/snow storms), firings of entire departments at new directors whim, will interview your replacement with your knowledge and even have you train him/her! extremely archaic processes, bad or non-existent business plans and execs have no clue/fear of the future/modern technologies, no chance at competing with companies such as Morningstar and many others going forward... RUN!

Advice to ManagementAdvice

It is 2012... figure it out, strong employees have value, treat them like human beings, show some respect and trust that they are responsible people living and working in NYC and be more flexible to keep them... be careful putting the entire companies success in the hands of a few incompetent people!

    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.

    I have been working at Value Line

    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!
