    I haven't found any cons, but I hear their direction has been improving with recent leadership changes that happened before I was hired.

    Pros

    Is flexible with work hours. Good appreciation for work/life balance. Benefits, PTO are good. Work is challenging and interesting.

    The acquisition by Rope has made it a more corporate environment. Harder to deal with purchase orders, etc. Red tape that one might expect.

    I have been working at The CBORD Group full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    From day one, my teammate have been instrumental in getting me up to speed. Although training is hard to come by, there are many opportunities to obtain training by asking questions, access to online training is available if asked. Benefits package is pretty fair so far, there could be some additional offerings like purchasing an extra week of vacation. Overall, I enjoy the work life balance, the open door culture, the transparency of the status of the company. The on-boarding process is one of the best I have witnessed/ shared with others.

    Cons

    lack of sufficient product training. need to strengthen agile scrum teams

    I have been working at The CBORD Group full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The people who work here are fantastic, very invested in your success and become family quickly. Easy accessibility to senior management--have had many questions answered by them and can call or e-mail with anything that pops up with a timely response/concern. Work/life balance is great--work hard, play hard type mentality! Flexibility--manager always works with us for any time off needed, dr. apts., unexpected issues that arise, always understanding! Open concept floor plan and office--business casual atmosphere, not stuffy at all. Compared to industry/national average PTO accrual and offerings is above par when combined vacation, sick, personal and holiday leave.

    Cons

    It's all how you look at it--you can either focus on the positives or the negatives--in my opinion the positives far outweigh any negative experience I've had thus far in my career with CBORD.

    I have been working at The CBORD Group for more than 8 years

    Pros

    A lot of hard-working hourly employees. Decent work/life balance,

    Cons

    Hourly workers are under-paid and under-valued. CBORD has Silos like none other. The company is more than less run by 2 or 3 Seniors. Managers not trusted or empowered; they have no voice and are basically glorified paper pushers and people sitters. Decisions seem to be made by a couple Sr. Execs. without involving middle management. Communication form Sr leadership down to departments is non-existent. Mentoring and encouraging professional growth is also non-existent.
