    Pros

    Worked at company for close to a decade. Loved it back in the day. There were many Team building events. Many off site company sponsored events that allowed for people to interact with departments that they would not otherwise engage with. As time went on and budgets decreased and headcount changed, the environment became somewhat - each department is an island. Keep your head down and just do your job.

    Cons

    Employees are not encouraged to seek advancement. Employee reviews do not give guidelines telling you what steps are need to take to get to the next level.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Since I have left the company, the company has been sold to Bottomline technologies. The headcount has changed and the management has changed. So hopefully some of my concerns have been addressed.

    Pros

    A reasonably good product. A loyal customer base. A decent sales team that is finally executing and making sales. Within the IT/Development group, offers excellent compensation for some positions, with a relaxed environment and very little pressure to produce or succeed (is that a pro?).

    Cons

    A deep seated culture of avoiding any accountability or committment - particularly at the more senior levels. Projects languish eternally and the most absurd excuses are readily accepted.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Come up with some realistic plans, define responsibilities and actually hold people accountable for performance.

    Great IT gig for cash and benefits. Keep looking if you want more.

    Pros

    Very open to hiring a diverse group of people - ages, sex and races = very positive trait.
    There are some good people here to team with.

    Cons

    Very traditional politics with praise given or held back as deemed useful.
    Departmental meetings called are 50% of the time forgotten by the manager.
    Needs more structure and deeper knowledge across all of the IT team.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The core weaknesses in the Infrastructure team are going to impact business at some point. The symptom to look for is the time to resolve major outages and problems, plus the tendency to throw money at consultants and purchasing.

    The staff has turned over twice in less than 2 years. That is a lot of knowledge to walk out the door. Someone more gifted at managing a team might be a good solution. I do understand he has great relationships with the management team and is trying to provide what is needed.
