    I worked at Information Builders full-time

    Pros

    independent, privately owned - family owned company feel (not big public corporation culture) with big boy money to back it up.
    Big Data is big now, so good IT niche to be in.

    Cons

    Good old boys club. Most of the bosses/management are old school networked together people that have been there for a long time. Most came from Boeing/McDonnell Douglas as IT people and now are in sales/managment roles. Not the best training or ongoing support - mostly sink or swim and most sink.

    Small company in a niche where it has been consolidated down to the big boys mostly. They're struggling to survive and stay afloat in a sea of big sharks/competitors.

    If you're wanting to get into their outside sales role which pays six figures you'd best be a great internal politician, very good looking, a college athlete, president of sorority/fraternity when in college, and know people internally and get networked well. Most everyone in my office knew someone already there from family, high school, or college is how they got in.
