I worked at Arizona Department of EducationRecommendsPositive OutlookRecommendsPositive Outlook
Good working environment with cutting edge technology and matured processes to work. The head of software engineering likes to hire only Indian contractors/employees and has issues with Americans. He may be above his head. CIO has a great vision and has been executing it with knowledgeable executive staff(mostly contractors) but I have never seen sharp people who are invested so much time with a customer. Kudos to them and the CIO!! .
It is difficult to see no software engineering practices from Head of Software Engineering and as a PM I found it difficult to digest. He is currently promoted to Dy CIO I heard.... QA function has seen many bad managers in the last one year so QA needs to be fixed as well...
Advice to Management
Move Dy CIO to another role.
