    I have been working at IgnitionOne full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I've worked at IgnitionOne for 2+ years. I've worked for 4 companies over the last 15 years and it's my favorite. I get to work with some of the latest technologies, get paid well to do it, and I'm given the time to get my work done. I've spent most of my career working for financial sector and didn't enjoy the burden of heavy government regulations. I now spend all my time innovating new products without any of the red tape.

    Cons

    401k match is pretty pathetic.

    I worked at IgnitionOne full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Quality of life flexibility, in-office creature comforts Good place to learn because the consequences of poor quality work are not well understood by management-- and thus cannot be reprimanded.

    Cons

    -Poor leadership from CEO level all the way down stemming from a lack of responsibility for poor business level choices and constant blaming of assembly line employees for poor execution at the strategic level . -Large amounts of technical debt with no attempts to rectify. -Noncompetitive salaries for the market (15-25% in the Tech department). -Unchecked nepotism in the technology team management structure. -Too much dissonance and protectionism between global offices and teams. -No sense of culture remains, has been reduced to a 9-5 collect paycheck environment. -Management communication for career advancement is largely nonexistent, with only vague excuses as to why a promotion was declined; often despite proven track records of value adding work.
