    I have been working at The CBORD Group full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - Stable job outlook, never laid anyone off or suspended operations - Products you can get behind - Great colleagues to work with

    Cons

    - Below average employee compensation package including salary, health care, and 401K plan - Upper management seems disconnected from staff - Poor internal employee resources - No continuing education program

    Advice to Management

    - Develop a compensation program that is comparable to other companies in a similar industry - Promote employee growth and development with a continuing education program - Rather than only rewarding employees with words of encouragement, tie compensation adjustments to reviews and performance

    Pros

    A lot of great coworkers.

    Cons

    New health and dental plans every year. Constantly in and out of network and out of pocket. Subtract thousands from your offered salary to cover the lack of benefits.

    Advice to Management

    Stand up to Roper before employees stand up and walk out.

    I worked at The CBORD Group full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good coworkers and customers. Almost impossible to get fired. Ithaca is an awesome town although the cost of living is high.

    Cons

    Mediocre pay, especially for the Ithaca area. too many middle managers. Terrible training. They think they provide world class support but treat those associates like they are disposable. Did I mention the pay?

    Advice to Management

    Wake up.

    I have been working at The CBORD Group full-time

    Pros

    -- Most positions are living-wage. -- Will hire people without degrees, even if the Job Requirements may demand so. The company values job experience. -- Growing company with many possibilities for advancement. -- Many positions allow for frequent travel, should you wish to do so. -- Genuine effort is made to provide good benefits (though it could be better). -- Growth and Job experience is second to none. A job here will put you in position to advance in the company or seek advance employment elsewhere. -- Reasonable office hours. -- Main office is located in a business park which has an adjacent pond. Walks around the business park campus can be de-stressing.

    Cons

    -- Office politics can adversely affect evaluations. -- Company was once privately owned. Since acquisition by a larger public corporation, the company is slowly losing some of it's once-excellent culture. -- Company has cut back on opportunities to work from home or remotely (especially in support positions). The quest to increase productivity unfortunately hurts morale. -- Base pay is below that of similar companies with comparable positions.

    Advice to Management

    Find ways to increase efficiency and productivity without wiping out, or dramatically reducing, the things that can make a company fun to work for.

    Pros

    If you like being busy and continuously learning and challenging yourself CBORD is the place to work. I worked there for 3 years and the environment and teamwork was unbeatable.

    Cons

    You must know how to multi-task and be responsible for your success and failures. Confidentiality is a must working with their high profile clientele.

    Advice to Management

    Keep being a caring and family oriented environment. "Treat your employees like they matter and they will"...You already know this tho, because you treated me great and had faith in me and with this I grew and learned more than even I knew I could.

    Pros

    there are a lot of caring, dedicated employees and great clients. Ithaca is a cool place to live

    Cons

    Too many managers. Some departments have more managers than employees with each employee reporting to someone different. No paid training. Raises barely cover cost of living increases.

    Advice to Management

    Take a long hard look at some of your management and cut the dead weight. Invest in training and development.
