Pros

Gain lots of new skills.
Secure Job - Little "Firing" going on - see why in "Cons"
Great place to build your resume.
Work in a professional environment.
Friendly coworkers.
Nice View

Cons

As others have mentioned, IB's compensation package is almost slave wage. I've seen many people with Masters Degree earning $10 to $12 an hr, It's really sickening when the CEO of the company mentions that selling the company to the new owners has added him another "0" to his bank account while his employees can barely pay enough for food in the office vending machines.

Management will smile and be nice to you, but it's just a facade to the underlying issue - which is a VERY VERY HIGH TURNOVER RATE! Their careers page visualizes it.

The employees (earning $12hr) that do stay here for more than a year have no confidence in themselves and want a "Secure" job. Little firings/layoffs going on because they can't find enough individuals willing to work for that type of wage- in industry standard, it's less than a fraction of what you can make elsewhere.

Build your Resume here and leverage it to move onto new opportunities. This is a JOB not a Career.

Advice to Management

Treat your employees like human beings. Compensate them with a living wage. Offering competitive compensation packages will keep talent. Stop abusing your Human Resources to find you people willing to work for low wage.

    Former Employee - Senior Software Developer in El Segundo, CA
    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Worked there back in the Carsdirect days. Lots of smart and competent folks in the IT departments, some of the best UI designers I've ever met. Cordial atmosphere once you're accepted in as a competent IT resource.

    Cons

    Things often done on a shoestring, long hours, difficult architecture to integrate with and within.

    Advice to Management

    Not sure at this point, but I know that the turnover was killer back in the day - make sure to fix that if it's still the case.

    Pros

    It was a pretty decent work environment. I got along with my supervisors and they were generally happy as long as I got work done. I had to time to study things that were of interest to me.

    Cons

    The pay is really low for this industry and you are given very little direction so getting work done can isn't as efficient as it could be. I also worked on sites that were rather old and had little documentation.

    Advice to Management

    Definitely more competitive pay would be advisable and and upgrading rather than patching sites would be nice.
