I have been working at ITA Software as a contractor (More than 3 years)

Pros

Requirements of technology are taken into account.
Team of highly talentented engineers of all experience levels.
Focus on high quality software production without being process obsessed.

Cons

Quality of lower-level management is lower than that of engineering team.
Engineering requirements traditionally trump management requirements, frustrating managers.
Promoting engineers into management does not always yield great results.

Advice to Management

Keep looking for better technical managers :)

    Approves of CEO

    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.
