I worked at Value Line as a contractor (more than 3 years)

Pros

None, the place is full of people who are unhappy and have given up. You will find plenty to complain about!

Cons

Finger pointing is common and no one takes the time to do the right things until its too late. No career path and pay is low compared to other companies. Dead end job

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Figure out what you're doing! This company is going under fast

    Former Employee - Applications Developer in New York, NY

    I worked at Value Line full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    There is absolutely nothing good about this company. It's managment has proven it's ineptness by looking at the share price.

    Cons

    The culture is a culture of corruption. The SEC investigation, although barring the former CEO and another from the industry, fining her $10 million and the company $10 million, missed alot.

    You have to sign in and out with a time card.

    There is high turnover, so you are always training someone new.

    If you are late or have a "messy desk" you can have your pay reduced.

    Management has some serious issues and the company seems to always being sued, which is why there are never any bonuses.

    However, the major shareholder donated $400,000 to some research hosptial in Massachusetts. Look up the grants of the Arnold Bernhard Foundation on Guidestar.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Resign. The company cannot remain viable under your leadership (or lack of it).

    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!
