    Pros

    Working with customers who are nice.

    Cons

    Slave drivers for SALARIED EMPLOYEES. If they could work you 24 hours a day they would. No work / Life balance unless you belong to their "Clic" ...deadbeats who have been there for 20 years or more are abundant. Brown nosers too. You feel like you are in second grade as for all the tattletales.

    Advice to Management

    Fire everyone and start with new management! No suck ups. Half of the IT management don't know how to manage or stupervise if it hit them in the head!
