    I have been working at ISE full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The company HAD a great entrepreneurial culture where staff and managers alike worked together to achieve our goals while holding each other accountable.

    Cons

    It was inevitable that the culture would be lost following the sale to Nasdaq in June 2016. Most of the staff has left or will soon leave as the systems integrate.

    Advice to Management

    The ISE managers have all left. The Nasdaq managers are good and communicate as best they can but its just not the same being part of a larger company.

    I have been working at ISE full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Work life balance, compensation, great co-workers and managers, training, fruit baskets, charity opportunities, rewarding and meaningful work the list goes on. ISE employees from the CEO down always strive to do the right thing. Hands down this is the best company I have ever worked for and the vast majority of employees feel the same way.

    Cons

    None. Even folks who have left ISE over the years return as guests to holiday parties as they miss it. And very few folks leave as evidenced by large amount of 10-15 year employees.

    Advice to Management

    Management at ISE listens to their employees daily and adjusts as needed. Even the CEOs office door is open to any employee. No advice from me needed keep up the great work.
