    I worked at Intrado

    Pros

    It's pretty stable. As economies go up and down, there are always reasons to teleconference.

    Cons

    Management recently got rid of some toxic leadership, and is steadily improving, but they still have work to do.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your people. Balking at training tells them you don't value them, and robs you of skills, loyalty, morale, and reputation. Treat your people as if you believe they are worth what you pay them. Make them proud to be there. You fail at this, horribly. Every person should *expect* a week of dedicated, relevant classes every year, maybe twice a year, usually offsite. Nothing will improve your workforce... retention and productivity more.

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

    Pros

    Interesting and challenging work. Ability to work from home.

    Cons

    Management is disconnected from team and work load is not distributed equally

    Advice to Management

    Need better project mgt. Lots of wasted time because of poor planning, which leads to lots of hours worked near the end of release.

    I worked at Intrado full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Soda... There is nothing else that is a pro

    Cons

    everything else - wake up Mary.... Your people are not happy at all and that is because you spend more money on making sure people don't say bad words as opposed to making a quality product. But you won't listen anyway, will you? You cannot make mistakes... g.b.

    Advice to Management

    Wake up and stop thinking that you cannot make mistakes. But then again, you wouldn't listen anyway because you are Intrado and you couldn't make mistakes, right? After George and Stephen sold the company, everything changed. Stay away unless you are desperate. Oh yeah, forget having an opinion, it will get you fired....

    I have been working at Intrado

    Pros

    There is great job security here. To my knowledge there has never been a lay-off. If you are a software developer you will have the opportunity to use your problem-solving skills to build interesting systems related to telephony technologies.

    Cons

    The medical insurance is kind of pricey if you have a family.

    Advice to Management

    West has a bad reputation in Omaha among IT workers as a place to work. Most of this is undeserved. Management should work on finding out what has caused this bad reputation to build and to fix it.

    I have been working at Intrado full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    The flexibility of my schedule. Being able to work remote when needed is great. Management is amazing by listening to what the developer needs and getting the proper tools to do their job. Having a cafeteria and gym in house is amazing.

    Cons

    When in the office the network can be a bit of a issue. Connectivity, proxy and firewall issues can cause productivity to slow to a snails pace.

    Advice to Management

    Look at the projects that are successful and bring that to other areas and projects. In engineering look to promoting from with in. Having real technical manager's that can manage and can get there hands dirty when needed. No more manager's that just give status to other managers.

    I have been working at Intrado full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    They have a restaurant and lots of parking. Pay and benefits are not bad.

    Cons

    If you like having a concrete ceiling over your head, no windows, sitting in a dark cubicle all day with horrendous incompetent management with no clue then apply here. Otherwise, run far away from this place, you will regret it. At one time it was a great place to work, but that has seriously deteriorated over the years. Don't waste your time unless you're starving.

    Advice to Management

    This place needs a revamp starting with the clueless management.

    I have been working at Intrado for less than a year

    Pros

    The cafeteria was good and cheap

    Cons

    Full timer complains constantly about the company. Today they cut the project and walked everyone out the door. The worst layoff I experienced.

    Advice to Management

    Please continue to run the company the way you are that way no one will come and work for you.
