    Pros

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

    Cons

    Many 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.

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

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee  in  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 ManagementAdvice

    Something needs to be done about that lazy environment.

    Pros

    For 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.

    Cons

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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep moving beyond the publications into the newer ways of communicating.

    Former Employee - Senior Product Manager in Piscataway, NJ

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Lack 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 ManagementAdvice

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