    I have been working at The Standard full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Momentum is building for some great IT transformations. If you perform well you get rewarded. New leadership in the business is really helping drive positive change. The IT team works well together. Much more collaboration between applications teams and infrastructure teams than at most companies. Very good work/life flexibility in both hours and location.

    Cons

    Some parts of outsourcing still need some work. That limits what some IT folks can focus on.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to invest in IT and transformation. Keep the smart people in IT motivated to innovate.
