    Pros

    The company pays really well for the kind of job it offers. If you land up in a good team you will be paid only to come to office.

    Cons

    The work is very boring. You will not learn a lot.
    Stay here for some time and then start looking for something that helps you grow as a professional.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Too many granularities. Employees should have a wider scope of work.

    Pros

    The culture in the company is very good. The management is good and easy to work with. The projects we get are well owned by us and give us a good knowledge.

    Cons

    The on site opportunities are not that good.
    There are recent changes in the higher managements which resulted in some policy changes and still they are in the evolution stage.

    Pros

    Innovative company if you're in sales, marketing or product, good products, good salary, nice location in NYC

    Cons

    If you work in sales or in product the jobs are probably amazing. If you are behind the scenes working in tech or operations its a nightmare. So much bureaucracy so little time. The environment is fast paced, but the tech teams can't keep up. Management is old school S&P management so don't let the CIQ name fool you. Most of the good management left when they were forced to come together. It used to be a great place to work, now its terrible, with poor management and you have to basically ask to go to the bathroom. Too many micromanagers and managers who don't understand how to manage. Most managers are extremely passive aggressive and old school. If you are looking for a young innovative tech team to work on, this isn't it. If you are in product it will be an innovative team but your stuff won't be developed correctly or on time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Back off, let people do their jobs, technology management needs the big ole heave ho. Bring in young, smart people, instead of old school boys club cronies.

    Pros

    People are pleasant to work with.
    Cool new floor; looks like Google.

    Cons

    Your job is never guaranteed; they do not give you a 2 week notice.
    Work on some weekends

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire a team/managers that have plans instead of wasting time.
