    Great learning experience, but moral is deteriorating

    I worked at Intersections full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    I can personally attest to the potential for professional growth and learning. The people are hard-working and lifelong friendships can easily be found.

    Cons

    The company has undergone many changes over the last few years, and overall moral has deteriorated. Discord among directors, and senior and mid-level management has created a confusing and stressful work environment. Long hours are expected with little appreciation and work-life balance is no longer something that can be found.

    I worked at Intersections full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    You will be challenged to code for 100% accuracy, security and maximum efficiency/throughput. You will learn if you make an effort and not otherwise. You will learn a lot about PCI compliance and the credit industry.

    Cons

    Needs product diversification. Too many variants of the same old thing with little branding changes.

    Too many meetings, most are lengthy and could be held with fewer participants.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Think outside the box or have someone help brainstorm, been doing the same thing for 20 years, losing effectiveness fast.

    I worked at Intersections full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Met good people, who were knowledgable in their field.

    Cons

    Management were poor at communicating, never wanting to improve processes that were out dated and time consuming. Even utilizing paper copies when a non-print option was available.

    Pros

    Nice place to work when starting your career. Work with some really intelligent people, always an opportunity to build something new.

    Cons

    Pay is below market average. Yearly increase is based on cost of living, not merit. Unable to move up in company unless you are friends with someone.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop treating employees like numbers.

    Pros

    People for the most part were laid back and professional.

    Cons

    Business went through some changes and laid a bunch of people off.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    No set training standards, makes the first few months painfully boring.

    I worked at Intersections full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Pretty intense culture with not much on-the-job training. Need to learn on your feet and be able to juggle multiple priorities. Good exposure to different corporate clients.

    Cons

    Takes a long time to get projects done. Doesn't seem to be a good corporate IT platform by which to service corporate clients. This leads to confusion and prioritization challenges.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create stronger culture with a more formal recognition program.

    Pros

    The people I worked with were nice.

    Cons

    So much talk about upgrade, and so much planning, but zero execution. Worked for one of the worst managers you can ever imagine. Very unorganized, condescending, and just an overall horrible person. I wondered why I ever worked under those types of conditions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make better choices as to who you make a manager.

    I have been working at Intersections as a contractor

    Pros

    I can't think of any.

    Ensure your senior IT managers pay their contractors.
