    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

    One of the best things about this company is that everybody is willing to listen to each other, and constructive input is always accepted and considered even if it comes from other departments. The corporate policies foster a friendly and co-operative environment, allowing new employees to feel at home very quickly - which in turn maximizes everyone's productivity.

    Cons

    In my opinion, we too often operate on a 'slow and steady wins the race' philosophy - which has certainly positioned us well, but it would behoove us to go for the grand slam at times, rather than being content to hit singles all day long.

    Advice to Management

    While co-operation is strong here, I believe we still have some employee-specific skills and knowledge going to waste - let's continue to build solid internal communication so that we've exhausted internal possibilities and resources before we outsource any projects.

    Pros

    You will have a flexible work schedule. Independent consulting service without the overhead and client search. Great product with outstanding support.

    Cons

    You will travel 80 to 90 percent of the time. Since the position is 30% commission, your vacation time is like a cut in pay.

    Advice to Management

    Review implementation structure to standardize projects and project phases to a more standard approach developed by the Project Management team.

    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.

    Great Benefits Package.

    Upward Mobility is not very existent. Sales goals are constantly increased making bonuses unlikely to receive.

    Pros

    People who work here, middle management. New salaried employees get 3 weeks off, 2 weeks for hourly employees. Ithaca is a great place, surrounded by mountains and water. While the corporate culture is taking over, remanence of the family culture still exists.

    Cons

    Since being purchase by a corporate giant, the 401k benefit has been slashed and even includes fees to participate. The health plan is now incredibly inferior, and positions are being restructured to reduce wages - including the change of some positions from salaried to hourly.
