    Superb for those with initiative, creativity and drive

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsDynamic environment, global experience, big challenges for big thinkers

    ConsLack of focus, so many opportunities and the need to focus on the few that are the best vs. trying to be all things to all people. The move from consortium to for-profit has been difficult and poses remarkable and unique challenges

    Advice to Senior ManagementStay on one path and maintain a single cohesive strategy.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Unstable and Divided

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsGood work-life balance. Much to learn, many skills to pick up in first few years.

    ConsNo shared strategy. Deep infighting under the surface. Lack of accountability for rationale and outcome of decisions. Frequent and seemingly desperate reorgs. Low bar of success.

    Advice to Senior ManagementLearn how to collaborate -- the place is too small for that level of self-promotion, politics and division. Define success upfront and hold yourselves accountable for it. Less time painting powerpoints for those above you and more time understanding what is below you. Execute much better.

    Average company

    Development Manager (Former Employee) Parsippany, NJ

    ProsGood Salary, good people to work with

    ConsNo clear strategy, keeps shifting goal posts, frequent restructuring efforts, reactive environment and for a very small company works like how a big company does.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet your strategy and vision right!

    TURMOIL! BAD Morale!

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsGood pay, some nice people work here if you are lucky enough to get on the right team.

    ConsSenior Management/Executives should be fired. Sales never makes the projected revenues/forecasts. Products never seem to be significantly improved.

    Advice to Senior ManagementManagement by bullying the employees, micro-management and constant re-organizations bound to fail.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    LOST!

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    Pros- Okay life-work balance
    - A lot of talented people, most who would be better off at a company that appreciates their skills

    ConsIt saddens me to write a negative review about a company I once enjoyed working for, however things are getting worse & worse by the day...here's what I have to say:
    - Management is playing with people
    - Unrealistic expectations in which wears down employees, resulting in turn over
    - Too many levels of management
    - Most projects are poorly planned and poorly funded
    - Lots of $$$ spent on the wrong areas of the business
    - No career path
    - More & more restrictions and "BS" in place instead of fixing any actual problem

    Advice to Senior Management- Treat your employees better and help them get ahead!
    - Get over your egos, understand where the talent lies and show appreciation for your employees
    - Hire managers that know how to manage & motivate a team
    - STOP the gossip!! Every time there is a change coming up, information gets leaked and only the “brown nosers” get to know ahead of time – either tell all employees or NONE!!!
    - Cost cuts are done to the middle workers, while the higher ranking managers are constantly traveling – 1st class, preferably!

    Overall, you can't continually take from your staff and then wonder why no one wants to stay or join the company.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

     

    Once upon a time, a good company...

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsWorking hours flexibility, some good perks. Benefits used to be great, but a lot has changed lately.

    ConsToo many changes in every aspect of the business more than once a year that affect tremendously the employee morale, and the company’s credibility . Very sad to see a company that once we could consider ‘one of the best companies to work for’,and now
    it has come down to a place where employees feel insecure about the company's future; too many turnovers, lacking direction & leadership, decisions are often made without proper planning, and usually the 'middle workers' suffer the consequence of it.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGET RID OF OFFICE POLITICS & QUIT MAKING EXPENSIVE TRIPS!

    Frequent "Reorganizing". Constant layoffs. It's a regular thing there. Low moral.

    Developer (Current Employee) Parsippany, NJ

    ProsRespectable pay. Cafe in the office building. Nice corporate park. Decent looking building. Ability to work remotely.

    ConsLayoffs layoffs and more layoffs. Turnover is so high that the employees have coined the term "The Inttra Tap". If you're tapped on the shoulder it means good bye. Existing employees play political games to keep their jobs. The overall business strategy is vague. Hostile environment with consultants. Zero in house business expertise. A company that has forgotten that the most valuable asset it it's people.

    Advice to Senior ManagementYour most valuable asset is your employees that know your business and your industry.
