    Pros

    Good location, if you live north of 128. Made some good friends who have been working there for a long time.

    Cons

    Was never a great company to begin with. Most people blame the horrible ICE acquisition, I only feel it made matters worse. Managers/ directors tried to be Frank Underwood from House of Cards (and not in a cool way). Very hard not to lose motivation. Colleagues were good people personally but this work environment brought out their worst! Avoid this company at all costs unless you happen to live in the area and are too proud to collect unemployment.

    Advice to Management

    Shed the suits, shed the act. Who are you kidding.

    Pros

    There are no pros at all.

    Cons

    Too many. We signed CONtracts: They're making us work longer hours at the same salary. We pay a lot more for our benefits and now have less vacation days per year.

    Advice to Management

    You chickened out. Stand up for your employees.

    Integration hiccups related to title, banding etc.
    Company is set to save money which can effect employees

    Pros

    People are friendly (majority). Most directors are very experienced and have high EQ. Good vacation days. Nice NYC offices and breakfast on Thursdays.

    Cons

    Too many to list. Manager micromanaged due to insecurity and being emotionally sensitive. Got complaints from clients and would hide it or make up some excuses. I would NOT recommend people to work at this company.

    Advice to Management

    Some people should get training on how to be a manager - you are the exact reason why people are leaving your team.
