    I worked at MBIA full-time

    Pros

    good bonus and building is very nice

    Cons

    Senior management plays favorites, unprofessional attitude and two faced upper management. Not a stable environment as company is losing business

    Advice to Management

    Allow employees to grow and lead projects. Give employees respect they deserve.

    I worked at MBIA full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Lots of interesting technology, some very knowlable people in the operations group.

    Cons

    Desktop helpdesk has to handle a lot of crap that the operations team breaks or deploys. many times had to come in on a saturday to test stuff that was ultimately broken by other teams... like do these people just push buttons andthen break stuff.

    Advice to Management

    Helpdesk users know what is goingon and there are many issues that could be resolved. you should look at their feedback and request it more. There is no open diaglouge we would have "meetings" regarding this but nothing would be acted on.

    Pros

    Pension and 401k match is great, generous vacation time. Medical benefits are above standard as well. Summer 2 pm Friday's are a nice perk.

    Cons

    Company's future is uncertain since the credit rating downgrade. It will be interesting to see what plans management comes up with.

    Pros

    It pays well and people are very professional. They also have summer hours, where you leave at 2:00pm on Friday

    Cons

    The company is running off. I am not sure the company will be around for more than 5 years. There will not be much growth for new employees.
