Pros

Flexible hours, good benefit package, paid vacations and sick time.

Cons

The leadership in interactive is inexperienced, uneducated and completely in over their heads. Anyone with talent and experience starts looking for another job within 6 months of hire. The company frowns upon new ideas, efforts to improve or any "change" whatsoever (even though they will repeatedly tell you in the interview that they are looking for new, fresh ideas from people with experience to help them improve.) No support for employees with hardware or software. Management made many promises during the interview and offer discussions that they never kept. A tremendous amount of politics, backstabbing, gossip, immaturity and attacking coworkers in order to mask their own inability and dysfunction.

Advice to Management

I would recommend that the new parent company make every employee reapply for their jobs. 90% of the leadership has been there 9+ years simply because no other company would ever hire them at the same level based on their resume.

    Pros

    - Highly skilled and passionate co-workers
    - Opportunity to work for a variety of interesting clients
    - Lots of knowledge sharing between co-workers

    Cons

    - Highly political environment
    - Management made lots of promises they didn't keep
    - Absolutely no work-life balance (and there never will be)
    - Surprisingly poor support of employees with proper hardware and software to do their job
    - Archaic time reporting system
    - Employees are expendable

    Advice to Management

    - Continue to inspire your staff
    - Stop making promises you can't keep to your employees
    - Put your employees first -- treat them with dignity, not like slaves
    - Deliver on the promise of work-life balance -- endless work hours does not have to be a badge of honor; promote working effectively, not endlessly
    - Keep the backbiting to a minimum; treat people fairly

    Pros

    Great place to grow both personally and professionally. Both the benefits and the culture support this.

    Cons

    Public company (parent org) so we have to play by those rules which feels like it can be limiting although overall it allows us stability.

    Advice to Management

    Provide more structured mentorship and succession planning, or at least be more transparent about it.
