Information Builders was recently honored, for the second consecutive year by the Business Intelligence Group as a finalist in the Best Places to Work Awards! This awards program identifies organizations doing all they can to improve performance by challenging their employees in an environment that makes work fun and engaging.
This recognition is especially an honor as it is based solely upon the responses our employees provided in a survey about what life is like at Information Builders. According to the Business Intelligence Group, “Life’s a lot better when you like where you work,” and we agree!
We believe our culture combines the energy of a startup with decades of experience, providing employees with a unique opportunity to be challenged, grow and, ultimately, do their best work. Below are just a few direct quotes from our employees:
“Information Builders provides an environment in which employees can expand their skill set to support the company, as well as their own professional goals. The work can be challenging, but there are many talented individuals that help make collaboration on projects exciting.”
“Working here has been a gift. I had only been in the tech field for a little over a year when I was swooped up by Information Builders and asked to come work for them. It's been almost 4 years now and I wouldn't trade a single day of the development, love, nurturing, pressure, adventure, and most importantly, sense of family that I've gotten to experience here. This is a genuinely great place to work.”
“Information Builders values its customers and employees above all. I admire this commitment to value creation and not just being driven by explosive growth and profits at the expense of quality and character. Having said that, the company is a market leader and continually innovating, which keeps it relevant and an interesting place to work. New senior leadership is investing more in our modernity, both from a technology and cultural perspective, which is refreshing.”
Our recognition by the Business Intelligence Group is truly a reflection of our employees’ commitment and dedication to maintaining the unique culture we have in the tech industry.

We're a friendly, creative bunch. Whether it's the seasoned and talented professionals with deep expertise or fresh recruits, coming in overflowing with enthusiasm and new ideas, the company attracts (and keeps!) people who like to think big and know how to get big things done.
Located right above Penn Station, and just a few blocks from Port Authority, Information Builders’ corporate headquarters in midtown Manhattan couldn’t be easier to reach, from all points of the city and the surrounding areas. Get to work (and get home!) with a minimum of time and effort.
Our corporate headquarters are modern and quite spacious with panoramic views of iconic Manhattan. Landmarks such as the Empire State Building, One World Trade Center, the Chrysler Building – even the Statue of Liberty – are all visible from our offices and conference and training rooms.
One of the best things about working at Information Builders is that all employees are encouraged to express their opinions and ideas. Whether it's a concept for a new marketing campaign, a product enhancement, or even a suggestion on office décor, all ideas are welcome and all voices are heard.
At Information Builders, we like to work smarter, not longer, and know that the time spent outside the office is just as important as the time spent inside it. The company offers a generous amount of vacation time and personal days, and employees are encouraged to use them. Employees at Information Builders are encouraged to express their creativity and community spirit outside of work as well. Whether it’s coaching your daughter’s soccer team, volunteering at a local soup kitchen, contributing articles to a technology web site or being the head clown at the annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade (like our Director of Events Marketing), we say "go for it!"
Ask people what they love about working here and most will say, "It’s like a big family." Everyone rallies together around the idea of taking care of our customers. We cheer for each other’s successes, both professional and personal. Many lifelong friendships have been forged here and will continue to be.
Information Builders was founded in 1975 and we’re not going anywhere. Unlike an unpredictable start-up that may have an exit strategy that doesn’t include you, at Information Builders, you’ll enjoy being part of a company that is built to last. There are so many opportunities for growth and change, so you can pivot to a new position or department and learn a new skill set. All things are possible at Information Builders.
As the company that practically invented Business Intelligence and self-service reporting decades ago, Information Builders continues to innovate. Our technology leadership is acknowledged by respected analysts such as Gartner, Ventana Research, Forrester, BARC and Dresner. Our software addresses a myriad of data challenges and supports the needs of all users, both inside and outside the organization, not just analysts or tech-savvy business people.
Information Builders is a privately held company. Why is this important? It means we can focus on the long term needs of our customers and the company itself, rather than meeting the short-term goals of shareholders and Wall Street analysts. This has allowed the company to thrive despite several stormy markets over the past 43 years, which knocked out many of our competitors. The bottom line is we remain true to our mission to provide superior software engineering combined with the industry’s best customer service.
Many companies claim to love their customers, but Information Builders' employees pride ourselves on the relationship we have with ours. No vendor is more committed to our customers’ success than we are, and it shows. Information Builders has repeatedly won Stevie Awards for outstanding customer service. We listen to and work with our customers to help solve their business problems and meet business goals.

At Information Buidlers, we are always looking for ways to help make people's lives beter.
With the start of the school year, we worked with Coalition for the Homeless (CFH) to help give the children of the homeless shelters in NYC the supplies they need for a successful school year. This year, CFH was able to provide 3,500 homeless students with backpacks filled with notebooks, binders, pencils, markets, calculators, and more - everything a student needs to kickoff the school year confident and ready for class!
This holiday season, our team got into the spirit of giving by working with The Shoebox Project for Shelters, Operation Christmas Child, The Joy of Sox, Creating Better Communities, and more. Check out this blog post to learn more about these charities and how you can get involved!
I worked at Information Builders full-time (More than 10 years)
I retired after 20 years with this company. Three things made it a terrific place to work. #1 is the flat structure of the organization. As a field front line manager, I had access to all levels of the company, without impeding bureaucracy, including Support, Management, R&D; #2 the collegial culture of the organization, as the company is large enough to be significant but small enough that I could have working relationships with peers and others throughout the company, both North America and International; and #3 there has always been something new to learn, experience, and work with (as a technologist, this was very important). The company has a technology stack that is broad and deep.
Sometimes the company can be entrapped by its own "traditions", but I always viewed this as an opportunity in that I and others could work to implement process improvements, and get those process improvements in place.
IBI can be a bottom-up company, meaning that innovations can come from all levels of the company. If you are looking for a unilateral, top-down management style, IBI is not your place. If you want a place to make your mark, IBI affords the opportunities.
I applied online. I interviewed at Information Builders (New York, NY).
Pretty standard. Spoke to four employees within the department I was applying for. We discussed what was written on my resume and past experiences. They were definitely looking for a personality fit and someone hungry and ready to work towards the company's goals. There were no questions set out to deliberately throw you off.
