    Meh... nice place to work... too easy

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Piscataway, NJ

    Pros+ The workload is very reasonable. You can probably finish your week's work in 3-4 days and then take it pretty easy.
    + The hours a pretty flexible. Most managers don't mind if you work from home even, as long as you get the work done.
    + Nice environment, friendly people.

    Cons- The place is just so lazy. That's great if you want a nice, chill job. But if you're the type who likes getting work done, this place is not for you. It's too easy, to the point where it's just boring.
    - There doesn't seem to be much room for improvement. It feels like it would take forever to climb that corporate ladder.
    - It doesn't seems like people are rewarded for their hard work. On the other hand, some employees who seem to be slacking all the time keep getting ahead. My feeling is that there's more office politics going on than I saw during my time there.

    Advice to Senior ManagementSomething needs to be done about that lazy environment.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Great place to work

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Piscataway, NJ

    ProsThe people at this company really care about you. There is great work/life balance and decent salaries.

    ConsMany people who work here stay here for life. This tends to create complacency. Just remember to keep it fresh and new and to move around.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Enjoyed it, grew a lot, and wish I could have stayed.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsFor many years they were great at striving to keep people even when the work changed. They retrained and were committed to the people who invested their lives in the organizations work. Good benefits too.

    ConsChange at least at the Computer Society to much more corporate and ruthless sort of attitude from the top down.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep moving beyond the publications into the newer ways of communicating.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Product Management

    Senior Product Manager (Former Employee) Piscataway, NJ

    ProsGreat hours, Great benefits, fairly low stress but also low salary and increases

    ConsLack of good leadership. Fractured management priorities. Despite being more aggressive about developing a singular marketing strategy, the company too much resembles a silo management. Each of the professional societies is run as an autonomous business unit and that's the problem. Do they serve the volunteer leadership? The members/engineers who publish? The scientific community? What about the engineering community in general or even the public at large? Who's your customer?

    Advice to Senior ManagementYou need to decide if you run this company or the members/volunteers do. It can't be both

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
