    Pros

    Great work hours that offers really good work/life balance. Flexibility and independence during business trips and managing client accounts.

    Cons

    The corporate structure is quickly changing and the company is stratifying layers of hierarchies, it's becoming more and more "corporate".

    Advice to Management

    Take more time to talk to employees and really listen to feedback.

    Pros

    The people in the office are excited to come to work. We are having a record year in 2014, and us younger team members feel we have great leaders and mentors.

    Cons

    If you aren't going into the sales path it might be difficult to move up quickly.

    Advice to Management

    Consider increasing compensation for teams that over perform.

    Pros

    Employee-centric - willingness to invest in the person for the benefit of the business. Solid leadership with several difference makers. Probably the right work/life balance. Excellent IP with several unique and proprietary data sets. New management from the outside looks promising.

    Cons

    Less intense than past experiences. Firm is likely about to see significant organizational change that often results in irrational behavior.

    Advice to Management

    Execute the structural changes you know the business needs. Everything is in place to do that and while change is hard, opportunities like this don't occur often - seize the day!!

    Pros

    Strong professional leadership that is moving the company in a stronger more focused direction. The work-life balance is very reasonable and the benefits program is on the generous side.

    Cons

    Company remains in a state of flux with a variety of key strategic directions yet to be fully articulated. Current leadership appears strong - but the uncertainty creates some pause that needs to be eliminated quickly.

    Advice to Management

    Embrace the culture of old (CIQ). Eliminate much of the P&C control that stalls and delays innovation and be more open to using partners to maximize the value of the data and to allow 3rd parties to innovate with us.

    Pros

    Great team environment, clear path for growth, and allows you to work on your own projects on a day-to-day basis.

    Cons

    Hard to understand the vision of the firm on a daily basis. Sometimes main sales techniques and success stories get lost in translation. Feel a bit of distance from other corporate offices.
