    I have been working at Value Line full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    good intro to investing and stock analysis ....reasonable hours (9-5) ...rank and file workers are generally nice (there is a sense that the r&f are in a terrible situation together - which breeds a strange camaraderie)

    Cons

    both upper and middle management are AWFUL ...competitor Morningstar started 40 years or so later than Value Line - yet the former has a market cap of $3.4 billion (while Value Line is BELOW $90 million) ...weak analysts are coddled (for the control) and a small group of managers (who don't even seem interested in investing) run the show. ...company blames its struggles for the growing amount of stock research that's available free to investors - it's a joke

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    put the company up for sale (maybe the name has some residual value) ...hope that private equity or some other entity bites ...then fire the CEO, as well as the top and middle managers

    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!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sell! Replace management!
