    I have been working at Palisade full-time

    Pros

    Great location, great employees, great benefits. Depending on what department you are in, you are giving great freedom. Upper managers out of touch with shifting business climate.

    Cons

    Horrible Middle Manager which ruins the whole corporate atmosphere. The aforementioned middle manager is a horrible, power hungry, crude individual. They are the only middle manager in the whole company, but that doesn't diminish her role at destroying corporate morale.

    Advice to Management

    Fire the worthless middle manager, who isn't even good at her own job. Fix your bad seed and it will fix your company.

    I worked at Palisade full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Located in downtown Ithaca, access to local eateries and stores, and the Cayuga waterfront trail are close and accessible. In addition, Palisade offered a wellness program and seemed concerned about ergonomically friendly work stations.

    Cons

    Palisade currently has an individual in control who is insecure in their position and power hungry at the same time. This person has made false accusations toward numerous employees to result in termination of their employment. In addition, expectations are unrealistic and employee morale has diminished greatly. No one feels secure in their positions and futures seem unsure.

    Advice to Management

    Take a serious look at your last year and a half, and who your source of information is. You've lost some great long time employees by trusting an unreliable and power hungry individual that has one agenda - to eliminate anyone that does not patronize them. You've entrusted someone you've known for a short time and have lost dedicated and hardworking employees as a result.

    Pros

    none to speak of or the foreseeable future

    Cons

    it's amazing that anything gets done or accomplished that's worth mentioning for a software engineer. its inundated by politics over innovation accompanied by very low salaries compared to industry.
