    Pros

    - Family Atmosphere
    - People are honest and try to do right for the company
    - Financially Conservative company (Mergers/Acquisitions occur frequently) and you know it won't be in the news for a bad trade or catastrophe
    - Flexible work conditions
    - Pay is fair and bonuses have been consistent
    - Rewards employees for loyalty to the company through stock option/vacation programs

    Cons

    - Career Advancement opportunities are limited, especially outside of home office for both business and supporting staff
    - Technology is old and not going to change anytime soon
    - Little organic growth on business side
    - Health Insurance is not that great

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    This is a very good company and a great place to work. The company has a lot of hard working and dedicated IT people that want the company to succeed and we need to allow for them to make a difference otherwise we will lose them.
    - Technical people have little input into IT decisions at both tactical and strategic level. That needs to change.
    - Little opportunity for staff to grow technical skillsets do to type of projects and technology. Essentially skills learned in training are gone shortly after since they are not applied to work.
    - Culture does not allow for innovation to take hold and entrepreneurial spirit making it difficult to recruit and retain top/good IT talent
    - We do not have strong technologists leading groups and it impacts deliverables in both quality and speed to market. This needs to change in order to deliver what the company needs for success.
