    Pros

    Owned by McGraw-Hill so lots of training and development offered. Good pay and benefits. Ability to work from home - sometimes.

    Cons

    Annual reorg is chaotic and doesn't lead to lasting relationship with your boss. Highly political, clicque management team. Keep piling the work on competent employees until they quit.

    Advice to Management

    Quit your job and be human for goodness sake.

    Enjoy the people I work with and the flexibility. I have also receive many opportunities for career advancement.

    Cons

    Too much change and it's difficult to make these changes without the consultation of operations employees. I enjoy working here though.

    Pros

    Excellent benefits Flex time Training opportunities for personal development Great office space Recognized and respected brand Several fun office activities

    Cons

    Could be just the team that I am on but there is heavy micro-management that requires detailed progress reports at least twice, sometimes 3 times a week. Unrealistic expectations regarding progress. As a new-hire, they expected me to understand entire methodologies (250+ pages), programs/applications (1000's of lines of code), and processes within two months (in my case). I'm hoping this isn't company wide.... Managers who are promoted seem to know the product very well, but lack skills in managing others. There is favoritism and not everyone is created equal. Some people get to come, go and do as they please while others don't have this luxury. Also, this company isn't trustworthy regarding job security. I have worked here for only a couple of months and have seen so many people quit, transfer to different teams without notice, or get fired. Lastly, work is REPETITIVE. Every week is the same unless something goes wrong with processing or you find something wrong during data quality check.

    Pros

    Autonomy with clients. Team spirit and support.

    Cons

    Massive turnover isn't being addressed. Restructuring time and again the last few years is driving away good talent. Excessive investment in grass roots IT is a failure. Employees no longer believe in the products being delivered.

    Advice to Management

    Company is a ticking time bomb. Upper management is desperate to create a positive perception for corporate, despite epic and continuous failures. Politics are rampant. Company preaches flexibility and equal opportunity, but does not support their policies through decision making.

    Pros

    Great support staff, benefits and products. They are forward thinking with products to change the automotive business. They are extremely respected throughout the world.

    Cons

    Although they are often seeking fresh and exciting ideas, it is rare for them to implement the ideas. They could make the office environment a bit more exciting and inviting.
