    Pros

    Individual contributors tend to be great people -a.k.a. - The Surfs

    Cons

    Haves and have not organization. Very elitist management. They think nothing of destroying a persons reputation or career if it benefits them or if they just feel like being mean.

    Advice to Management

    Go to church or temple. Get some moral values. Stop treating individual contributors like dirt.

    I worked at Bard full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Was allowed to run my own day to day schedule
    Rather flexible hours
    Good PTO
    Good healthcare plan

    Cons

    No direction
    No true brand identity
    Senior management is disjointed
    My day to day activities really made no difference to the business. Most decisions were made behind closed doors or before I even started my work. Most of my time was spent getting info together for someone higher to present. It's a double edged sword- lack of your work nattering means that you could make mistakes in a safety net and learn but also means that your work didn't matter.

    Pros

    Just changed vacation policy to an automatic 3 weeks for salary employees. Culture is starting to shift in a very positive direction.

    Still below industry standard pay, but 3 weeks of vacation closes that gap.

    Advice to Management

    More employee training
