    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.

  2. Good stable work environment.

    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.

    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.
