I have been working at InterSystems full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Stable company
More autonomy than I expected in daily work
Stable long term customer base primarily in healthcare and finance
Smart coworkers including many industry veterans
Salary increases in line with industry averages (don't know why other reviewer said there were none)
International offices and projects - you might get to travel
You'll probably get your own door

Cons

Specific tech skills you develop here are not as widely used or as in demand as some other skills
Focus on backward compatibility sometimes limits forward technical progress of products
Commute traffic depending on where you live

Advice to Management

Consider what other acquisitions we can make to improve our platform

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    - Stable company with very smart and generally friendly people
    - Great location in Cambridge near MIT
    - Compensation is decent

    Cons

    No real goals, no motivation, no innovation, no performance reviews, no real chance of career advancement, horrible technical infrastructure. The level of nepotism was also astounding. Benefits were below average; no dental insurance and did not cover as much health insurance as most companies.

    Advice to Management

    Bring in new management with an outside perspective. Listen to what they say, and especially to what your employees say. The company has always done things a certain way and seems loathe to change anything, no matter how practical the ideas may be. Also, stop obsessing over Microsoft.
