    Open communication across departments.
    No dearth of challenges.
    Great access to outdoors.
    Enough vacation time.

    Promotions are slow and a little too rigid.

    Need more structured metrics-based approach across the board.
    Need to figure out where are core strengths are and focus on them.

    Current Employee - Business Analyst  in  Boise, ID
    Current Employee - Business Analyst in Boise, ID

    Pros

    It has a different type of management style in the IT department that I like. The pay and incentives are competitive for the valley. The IT "Talent Mgmt" tries it's best to have a work-life balance, training and personal growth. Very health conscience. Great stock options and bonuses in good years. There are people here that have been here forever, so see that as a good sign. Very process oriented.

    Cons

    They will take whatever you give so it's up to you if you do not have a work-life balance. Cyclical product so that could effect bonus/stock or potential layoffs. Sometimes the other departments start projects without knowing/thinking about the IT side is needed and then IT is expected to jump and meet their deadlines no matter what it takes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    sorry, but i'm not one to give advice if i haven't been in their shoes... Maybe recognize the fact that people do try their best and if you hear a name of someone doing good, recognize it.. quick email to say thanks, take a walk through some of the buildings/bull pens... say hi.. all levels of mgmt...
