    Business Rebuilding - time will tell

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Armonk, NY

    ProsOutstanding compensation and benefits. Convenient location for people living north of NYC. Work life is generally fairly reasonable but depends upon department within the company.

    ConsCan be difficult to make progress in career. Many long-timers at the top ranks who are not as open to change.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep employees as informed as possible about changes as the company re-builds itself. Be honest in the progress as well as issues which arise. Work to help employees understand how their careers can progress and what they need to do to achieve their career goals.

    MBIA pays well but does not offer a positive company culture or employment experience.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Armonk, NY

    ProsCompensation, location, smart people, and challenge are all good. There is an understanding that good staff are important to the success of the company.

    ConsLittle to no support for one's personal life to the point where time off is looked down upon. A very top down approach which does not empower the bright people working there.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTo make this a more attractive place to work, actively support work life initiatives - not grudgingly but whole heartedly. Trust your employees to work hard and do the right thing - manage out the few who don't.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Gone with the wind

    Associate (Former Employee) Armonk, NY

    ProsIt used to be a respected and solid company before the crash of the financial industry.

    ConsLimited growth opportunities in some areas of the company. Uneven division of task and responsibilities within the same position level.
    Very bureaucratic and paralyzed place. Impossible to have anything done without endorsement from half the company.

    Advice to Senior ManagementLet people do their work and keep them responsible and accountable, less micro-management.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    incompetent management; immature and unprofessional enviornment

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    Prosgood work/life balance; good benefits

    Consinadequacy of senior mgmt; only those willing to sacrifice their individualism in exchange for stroking management's ego will advance their career; unprofessional and immature behaviors are about at this place, it's like being back in high school; most of the people there lack outside experience/exposure and therefore don't even know what they don't know.
