    Pros

    Conversant has a great work life balance, unlimited vacation and great benefits. Alliance Data which Conversant is an umbrella under I feel truly cares about the company.

    Cons

    Management needs some work. Really! How these people got into their positions is really surprising. A lot of good ole boys club, women really don't count. #metoo.

    Advice to Management

    Get off your high horse. We all work for the same company!

    Pros

    Unlimited time off. Tech forward company.

    Cons

    They care so little about associates. I would recommend working no more than 12-18 months before moving elsewhere. Not the best place to climb your career ladder long term. They are not here for you or to support you.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of your people. You pass over a lot of people based on arbitrary rules and screw over good ones simply because of those rules. That is why they leave.

    Pros

    Fast paced culture, things and people are always moving similar to a busy New York City street. If you like a highly competitive organization this is the place to be.

    Cons

    The office is growing at an exponential rate and can be crowded at times.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work!

    Pros

    Great coworkers, unlimited vacation policy.

    Cons

    There's virtually no way to grow as a developer in this position. You're locked into a very small developing environment that doesn't challenge you to learn more. Most of your projects will be different variations of the same exact issues repeated over and over and most of your day will be occupied by meetings . Compensation is below average and despite promised opportunity for growth it is unlikely.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your employees competitive wages or at least utilize them to their ability. Otherwise you'll continue to lose talent.
