    Pros

    Dynamic environment, global experience, big challenges for big thinkers

    Cons

    Lack 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 ManagementAdvice

    Stay on one path and maintain a single cohesive strategy.

    Pros

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

    Cons

    No 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 ManagementAdvice

    Learn 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.

    Good Salary, good people to work with

    No clear strategy, keeps shifting goal posts, frequent restructuring efforts, reactive environment and for a very small company works like how a big company does.

    Pros

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

    Cons

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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

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

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

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

    Cons

    It 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 ManagementAdvice

    - 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.

    Once upon a time, a good company...

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Too 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 ManagementAdvice

    GET RID OF OFFICE POLITICS & QUIT MAKING EXPENSIVE TRIPS!

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

    Current Employee - Developer  in  Parsippany, NJ
    Current Employee - Developer in Parsippany, NJ

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Layoffs 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 ManagementAdvice

    Your most valuable asset is your employees that know your business and your industry.
