    Good job if you are just starting out to gain experience. Nice coworkers that make it a decent place to work.

    Research Analyst (Former Employee)

    ConsCore group of people get promoted while others remain at the same level. Extra hours are expected but not appreciated.

    IMMIGRANTS, Please don't join the programming department

    Outcome Research Programmer/Analyst (Former Employee)
    Wilmington, DE

    ProsI was a research programmer/analyst (programming dept). Pros- Not much I can say

    ConsIf you are planning to start your green card sponsorship, NEVER join this company. They will jeopardize your future. They will promise to sponsor when you join the company. The management of this department is so adamant and senseless that they will delay the sponsorship as much as they can. They can even withdraw your file even if your visa is going to expire.

    -400% overload, work in weekends

    -You basically don't build your career just by coding without getting any subject knowledge (unlike other programming jobs in other companies)

    -They want everything out of you but not willing to help you a bit to help you. Sweatshop. Too cunning.

    Advice to Senior ManagementNone

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Very poor management

    Analyst (Former Employee)

    ProsHours are flexible and that's the only pro.

    ConsEither you are promoted by kissing ass or you stay in your position forever. Really high turn-over rate, very low morale and low hourly rate. Always take advantage of workers who need green card sponsorship. Lots of complaints among employees exist in this unfair working environment.

    Advice to Senior ManagementLots of valuable people leave because only few people close to the big boss get non stop promotion and raise and the rest get non stop work loads.

    – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Worst job ever had (research programmer)

    Research Programmer (Former Employee)
    Wilmington, DE

    Prosabsolutely nothig but reasonable pay

    ConsEmployees treated like slaves and foes in the programming department
    Dictatorship environment in the department (a lady dictator and a few others!)
    No systems. Total chaos. But they will put blame on you for everything
    They micromanage your work, ask you to work on weekends and nights. Incapable management.
    You are treated like schoolkids in terms of reporting
    No career growth.
    Unprofessional management, Politics by a bunch of half knowledgeable old dictators! But the senor management under the influence of these dictators- so, no hope
    No wonder why programmers have a short tenure here!
    Dont join this department guys if you care about your career, life, dignity and health!

    Advice to Senior ManagementChange the dictatorship management (The lady and the few others in the programming dept)

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
