Doesn't Recommend
Negative Outlook
No opinion of CEO

I worked at Information Builders full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Good location on top of Penn Station.

Cons

Too many psychotic managers who only get promoted to the next level rather than being terminated.

The Webfocus product is awful, better BI products are on the market. Core software really hasn't changed much since the 1970's.

Advice to Management

Sell the company and clean house.
