    Pros

    Been working for CEC for quite some time now. Prior to 2014, the Engineering team had many challenges in just about every area: inability to deliver on time, lack of accountability, quality (planned hotfixes), overly complex applications, legacy applications, too many offshore contractors, lack of collaboration within and outside of IT, and most of all - very low morale. In early 2014, new management entered the picture and significant changes with it. Starting from the top. New organizational changes occurred. New SDLC processes were introduced (agile). Dedicated time given to refactor and rewrite legacy applications. Shift to more onshore resources and re-balanced engineers to QA resources. Significant (newly introduced) support from mgmt...etc. The IT org seems like a brand new organization. We are now delivering on time and within budget. Quality is at an all time high and all teams are collaborating fully and openly. The business stakeholders are very pleased as well. All in all... a pretty decent place to work. (We also just brought in a ping pong table... times are a changin')

    Cons

    Quite a few legacy applications that are overly complex. Thankfully mgmt. is supportive in dedicating time to refactor but there is a long way to go...sometimes hard to know where to start.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the support. Keep bringing on great talent.
