    Flexible and Casual, But Lacks Rewards for Good/High Performance

    Business Systems Developer (Current Employee) Madison, WI

    Proson-site gym; on-site cafeteria; casual environment; flexible work schedule; ability to telecommute; good benefits; good salary; underground parking

    ConsIT Developers are union jobs. It's a con if you are a fast learner and high performer because there is a minimum amount of time before you can get promoted to the next level, even if you already meet the other job requirements for that next level. Very unsatisfying advancement opportunities.

    Advice to Senior ManagementAdd more rewards throughout the year for good performance. The union positions are keeping average performers at the company but getting high performers out of the door because of the lack of rewards and growth opportunities.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    All around great place to work

    Project Manager II (Current Employee) Madison, WI

    Pros- Numerous opportunities to grow professionally within the organization
    - Company paid professional development activities
    - Year end profit sharing tied to your performance and base pay
    - On-site cafeteria with plenty of options for all appetites
    - Great work culture and people
    - Heavily invested in being good community stewards
    - Compensation and benefit package is very competitive with the Madison market
    - Offer flexible work schedules and the ability to work remotely either full-time or as needed
    - Underground parking is available to full-time employees
    - Opportunity for contractors to come on-board as full-time employees

    Cons- Some employee's have been tenured too long with the organization and in some cases (not all) are resistant to changes both from a business operations and IT point of view
    - Contractor churn is slightly high on projects (not always)

    Advice to Senior ManagementNo advice to the management team as the have been moving the organization towards being attractive to potential employees at all levels (new employee to the market, experienced talent, and current and internal employees). The benefits package remains competitive via salary and profit sharing bonuses, opportunity for growth remains high, and constantly challenging and rewarding work environment are available to employee's should they choose it

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Conservative, conservative company

    Senior Manager - IT (Former Employee) Madison, WI

    ProsVery friendly staff, excellent facilities, stable customer base

    ConsCorporate nepotism. You need to get on the 'inside' to advance or be taken seriously. Every single decision of any significant magnitude requires a consensus from so many people, work and projects move at the speed of smell. As risk adverse a company as I've ever worked for.

    Advice to Senior ManagementYou don't know talent when it is right under your nose. Stop ignoring result oriented folks if you ever want to accomplish something in shorter timelines and lower cost. Of course you'll have a 'strong' team when you all drink and golf together. That means you are close, not effective.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Good company to work at, save for the union

    Technology Integration Consultant (Former Employee) Madison, WI

    ProsVery mature IT organization with plenty of growth opportunities in many areas of IT. Good pay and benefits and a solid IT leadership.

    ConsThe union...for most IT roles, membership in the union is mandatory. For some of the newer IT roles, not so much.
