    best company I ever worked for.

    Project Manager (Current Employee)

    ProsExcellent support from the administrative side. Good people. Pockets of a unique culture you can't find anywhere else. Benefits and compensation some of the best I've seen. great chance to experience new cultures, work with the elite of the industry, and learn in a rare environment of new ideas and technologies.

    ConsFunding hamper progress. New model needed - can't please all of the people all of the time.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet rid of dependency on New York State funding. It's a killer.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
