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

Pros

Some decent people - Good starting groud for college grads to get a taste on how to research a company - That is about it.

Cons

Most of upper management has no morales and do not know how to run a company - No insight of Market needs - No compelling products to meet what users really need or want - Lost everthing to Morningstar - It's a classic on what not to do to grow and retain customers - retain talent - promote and acquire new talent - A waste of time!

    I worked at Value Line full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Minimal hours (9-5) and will hire people with no finance background, possibly a good place to get started in finance if you are young just need some experience

    Cons

    The highest levels of management are not only narrow-minded they also have been found guilty of various SEC fraud.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quite. Let someone else run the business.

    I worked at Value Line full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    After IT management change, opportunities to expand knowledge and experience opened up. They seemed to be intent on changing the corporate culture. Began to upgrade all technology and move from paper to digital publishing. Moving to bring the company into the 21st century by rebranding the company.

    Cons

    Pay is still very low. Some old-timers are refusing to change. Jean Buttner still has a lot of influence even though she is no longer CEO.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Disengage from Jean Buttner and get new CEO who is not associated with her. Continue with company transformation. Increase salaries to be more in line with other companies.
