    Pros

    Great pay, great people to work with - everyone has the opportunity to contribute to the company's success

    Cons

    Evolving to a nationally launched product and the rigors behind it has created cultural pains

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Top down driven company

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I have been working at Isis full-time

    Pros

    - Generally good people working there
    - Cash compensation is good
    - Excellent 401k match
    - Good if you enjoy the challenging of developing a new brand, market and lifestyle

    Cons

    - Top down driven company. Leadership team makes or micromanages every decision, major and minor.
    - People with no subject matter expertise often have excessive influence (or absolute) on projects/programs and are often narrow minded when making decisions
    - No opportunity for advancement in terms of titles or responsibilities. Hires from the outside instead of looking at existing internal expertise. Existing employees often don't even know positions are available.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Let the people you hired have the freedom to make decisions in the area of their expertise
    - Stop micromanaging every program. Trust your people.
    - Stop always hiring from the outside. Allow you existing employee base a chance to advance.

    Pros

    Good product but we might have missed the window of success and product use

    Cons

    Poor management from the CEO down. Isis ran off all the good leaders who have all gone on to be successful at other companies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Executives need to leave and I bet the board is not far from seeing this.

    I have been working at Isis full-time

    Pros

    Great pay and benefits
    Great workforce

    Cons

    Management has no clue of what they are doing. The cookie cutter GE management doesn't have what it takes to help an innovation company succeed.
    Second level management hiring people with no work to be done, just to build their empire.
    No cost control.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you don't watch your expenses and productivity, you will need to start layoffs before the end of the year.

    I have been working at Isis full-time

    Pros

    Great technology, if partnered with the right partners and implemented innnovatively, can revolutionize the way people pay and use offers.

    Cons

    Very bad management and very political atmosphere. Employees are promoted by being favorable to the bosses. The organization is run as being run by a Project Manager rather than being run by an Innovator, Strategist.

    Very bad/No communication by the Senior Management to the down. Management can't manage or advance the career of the employees.

    Working at this company affects your personal life to the great extent.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please clean up the mid level management extensively.

    Pros

    Great medical and retirement benefits.

    This company is top heavy. You have C-Levels reporting to C-Levels reporting into the CEO.

    "Good Old Boy Club" runs this company.

    Poor corporate culture. Does not work to develop its internal talent; prefers to hire in friends instead of promoting from within.

    Communication gap between management/employees and between the teams.

    Lacks internal processes.

    Child-like atmosphere.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Advice to the MNOs is to clean house from the top down.

    I worked at Isis

    Pros

    Isis has a great product that could potentially revolutionize the mobile payments industry. They has great partners.

    Cons

    Senior Leadership is not focused on the right areas and employees are treated as expendable. There is no loyalty or commitment from the top down but expected from the bottom up. It's not a sustainable arrangement.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you want Isis to succeed, clean house from the top and not at the bottom.
