    Pros

    Innovative company if you're in sales, marketing or product, good products, good salary, nice location in NYC

    Cons

    If you work in sales or in product the jobs are probably amazing. If you are behind the scenes working in tech or operations its a nightmare. So much bureaucracy so little time. The environment is fast paced, but the tech teams can't keep up. Management is old school S&P management so don't let the CIQ name fool you. Most of the good management left when they were forced to come together. It used to be a great place to work, now its terrible, with poor management and you have to basically ask to go to the bathroom. Too many micromanagers and managers who don't understand how to manage. Most managers are extremely passive aggressive and old school. If you are looking for a young innovative tech team to work on, this isn't it. If you are in product it will be an innovative team but your stuff won't be developed correctly or on time.

    Advice to Management

    Back off, let people do their jobs, technology management needs the big ole heave ho. Bring in young, smart people, instead of old school boys club cronies.

    Pros

    People are pleasant to work with.
    Cool new floor; looks like Google.
    Salary and benefits are really good.

    Cons

    QA department is run by strict women.
    Tasks can be repetitive and boring.

    Work on some weekends

    Advice to Management

    Hire a team/managers that have plans instead of wasting time.

    Pros

    One can mostly coast and chill. There is a good work and life balance.

    Cons

    There is no incentive to push, bad management and very fare opportunities to grow

    Advice to Management

    Only complete clowns or bs artists get promoted and you need to completely revamp the company

    Pros

    Great work life balance, really nice perks such as Pool and Ping Pong. Trying to be innovative, and you have flexibility to try out new ideas as long as they are not too risky.

    Cons

    Doesn't pay well, and people are not ambitious. Most everyone is rather risk averse.

    Advice to Management

    Lead by example

    Pros

    The culture is good - management has been trying to improve morale through events, benefits, and fancy new fad-office design - PS4s and X-Box Ones, treadmill and standing desks, etc.

    Cons

    The technology is dated and backwards, and strives towards modernizing/embracing newer, more productive patterns and libraries have been dragged down by management that either doesn't get it or actively stops innovation. It's gotten too big to be what it once was - a focused team that valued talent, brains, and innovation.
