    Pros

    If you are just graduating and have some IT skills, these guys may hook you up. They do have good vacation and benefits.

    Cons

    For experienced people, you'd better look elsewhere if you want market rate. Back end developers are understaffed for this reason, and they just laid off senior front end people, in an effort to replace them with cheaper people (not kidding, layoff was in July and they have ads up everywhere for the same jobs right now). The White Plains office has a highly unfortunate 9-hour work day that should be abolished. So it's 9 - 6 (with an hour lunch).

    Advice to Management

    Make it a 40 hour work week, not 45 hour. And maybe you'd attract and retain more talent by paying the market rate.

    Pros

    Your coworkers are wonderful. There is a high percentage of competent people and a low percentage of egos and drama. People help each other and reach out to include people in social activities. There have been more cliques forming lately, though.

    Cons

    Lots of secrecy regarding job advancement. Salary scale is crazily scewed -- many of the most proficient workers are paid far less than people who are barely competent. There's almost no cost benefit analysis involved in large projects, which leads to huge amounts of money being sunk into plans that are highly unfavorable to the company.

    Advice to Management

    "Market research" should entail more than identifying successful products and attempting to clone them. Analyzing market saturation, tracking changes among target audiences, as well as weighing cost of production versus likely income are all obvious things that should be done before investing large amounts of company time into new initiatives.
