    Pros

    some of the people within the company are top-notch
    the customers are just great and what its all about

    Cons

    Poorly informed management who don't have experience in the industry and therefore do not have a deep understanding of the industry.
    poor morale, compensation at low end of spectrum

    Advice to Management

    Morale at this company has been low for over 15 years. Maybe time to value employees and decide to overhaul corporate culture.

    Pros

    Great place to work, but it seems like they are winding down the staff in the NYC/NJ area. Mike was once very visible now he hardly even talks in the elevator..

    Cons

    seems like they are outsourcing more and more work, and losing what was unique about the company

    Advice to Management

    Try to share more about what the real plan is. Mike needs to stop hiding from the firm

    Pros

    Wonderful co-workers, great pay and benefits. Fun perks like parties, happy hours, etc.

    Cons

    Mismanagement is rife, flagship products don't work, pressure is unbearable. Just this year, a woman in her thirties had a stress related stroke, and two other people had to take short term disability for psychological reasons. The pay is not worth it.

    Advice to Management

    When employees performance tanks, look for underlying causes rather than just applying more pressure. You have talented professionals who bed the chance to succeed. Don't let a bad month or two convince you that employees who have been with the for decades are dead weight. Invest in your employees that way you say you do. Stop the culture of fear.

    Pros

    Solid people, good assets, a lot of progress recently with improved management and leadership, still a lot to do but optimistic outlook. Definitely on a massive transformation journey which creates lots of opportunities.

    Cons

    A lot of projects and innovation, sometimes a little too much maybe, you have to love challenges and problem-solving.

    Advice to Management

    Keep transforming the organization, be mindful of not overloading your people.

    Pros

    The people you work with, location and benefits are all good.

    Cons

    Upper management seems to lack direction. A number of coworkers have departed over the uncertainty that exists. For a company that needs a drastic overhaul it was a surprise that that they hired an inexperienced CEO. Regrettably the next level of management is also ineffective. As a consequence the work environment has deteriorated even further. The effect on my personal workload has substantially increased with no perceivable benefit; we are working harder not smarter.

    Advice to Management

    Take time to create vision statement and then organize your plans towards that vision. Stay focused on that vision and stop being distracted by everyday events. If you can show this kind of commitment then people will buy into the plan and things will turn around.
