    Pros

    Freedom to appply many different creative solutions. The culture their is the type of atmosphere that is very helpful with my profession. I am also allowed to approach most projects with a level of say so.

    Cons

    Lack of understanding from within about the different roles neccesary to accomplish certain task. Also having to act as an administrater 30 - 40 percent of the time slows my engagements down.

    Advice to Management

    Implement a CIO who has somewhat been in the trenches. Allow the department too carefully choose employees with different specialized skills to create more effective teams. Seperate development and administration for the power users who are constantly engaged in projects and enforce end users who are primarily the customer of solutions, to become more involved in all stages of projects, and not just when something is working properly.


  2. Good people in Tampa but the headquarters are moving

    The company is moving their corporate offices to Birmingham. Not too many people at corporate seem to want to go.

    Better comunication with the employees. It will be a vastly different company once the relocation to Birmingham Alabama is completed.

    Negative Outlook
    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Walter Industries full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Relatively small company with close knit relationships at all levels

    Cons

    Many ideas from external sources are not accepted. Strong bias for insider knowledge.

    Advice to Management

    Once past the bankruptcy issue, new blood with new ideas would be helpful.
