    I worked at Cordium full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Get off early on Fridays during the summer is about the only pro.

    Cons

    Pay sucks!!! Expect to work long hours without deserved pay. The company thinks its okay to pay for your lunch once a month to make up for the low pay. Raises (if any) are a joke. Human resources is made up of one person who doesn't have a clue what is going on in the company. When problems are brought to human resources, they simply give you an excuse to mull over the situation and it never gets resolved. The turn over rate is ridiculous. Do not get used to seeing/ working with someone for very long. Every other month someone is leaving the company. Once those people leave, be prepared to take on more and more work. Also, Senior or Upper management position play favorites. It is clear that employees who are closer to those in upper positions are securing their jobs.

    Also, there is a clear divide among departments.

    Advice to Management

    Stop ignoring problems. The more you ignore these issues, the more unhappy your employees will be.

    Pros

    There really are none. Collecting a pay check is one.

    Cons

    Too numerous to list. Management does not follow through with promised raises. The company owner cries poverty, then takes off for his skiing holiday to Aspen.

    Advice to Management

    Do as I say, not as i do is not an effective management style.

    I worked at Cordium full-time

    Pros

    -A lot of paid time off

    Cons

    -Lack of culture

    Advice to Management

    Invest in good management and more communication with employees. Experience will vary based on the team and management, I found that distant management and not good communication between the team can lead to a lot of problems.

    Pros

    For the most part, it's a great group of people. Fully stocked kitchen, frequent lunches/events, 1/2 day Fridays, and a lot of vacation days (more than you'll probably get anywhere else). Not a lot of micro-management, which means you can do most of your work independently/at a reasonable pace. Flexible/casual scheduling, and a casual dress code. These things can go a long way - however...

    Cons

    You get a lot of vacation days to offset the fact that the insurance benefits are pretty awful. There's a mentality from some members of management that is "do as I say, but not as I do." This can be frustrating. At times, it feels like the US arm of the company is run like a "family owned" business, rather than a global firm with nearly 200 employees. There seems to be a large divide when it comes to compensation. Some people are very well compensated, while others are barely making enough to live.

    Advice to Management

    Be more present - literally.
