I worked at ITA Software as an intern (Less than a year)

Pros

The engineers (and others) are really friendly and chill. There is food everywhere. Can't say much about salary.

Cons

The company is in Boston (smaller tech area), and I'm not sure if my review is applicable now that it has been acquired by Google since.

    Pros

    Little hassles. Perks are better than many, including the impending new owner. Good adoption of the trial-period employment practice. Pay is OK.

    Cons

    Some projects have diffuse responsibility. Siloed departments with too much duplication. Factory-overseer micromanagement mentality. Too much ad-hoc everything. Disparate tools used even in the same department leads to duplication of effort. Ridiculously strict maintenance schedule makes everything take too long. No advancement for mid and senior technical staff. Favoritism. HR does well in general with surveys and the like, but falls down in handling specific issues. You must be both an academic and into "geek chic" to stomach the place. Loads of intellectual-bully juveniles given overly-long play on their leashes.

    Advice to Management

    Disallow meetings that don't have agendas produced in advance. Get a real conferencing system. Encourage respect for other people's time by being punctual and ending on time. Reduce reliance on hallway and ad-hock. Stop focusing on administrivia metrics and instead use sane, results-based critique. Middle management needs to learn how to trust employees to do their jobs.
