    Pros

    Good out of school first job

    Cons

    Nepotism, work volume, little internal path for advancement, late nights long hours

    Advice to Management

    Restructure the company so that employees are able to see internal growth within the company rather than externally. Get rid of nepotism and false advancements.

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Edifice Info Mgt Systems full-time

    Pros

    Decent paying job for entry level. Easy interviews.

    Cons

    None of the positions are real. They are just names. No business, technical, or marketing positions are real. This is not a tech driven company and all so called developers and engineers are there for support. There is nothing to develop or code. Over qualified entry level employees are hired with the false promise that they will be moved to a developer position(which is in reality a support not development position). It NEVER happens. As a result, employees get disappointed and leave the company sooner or later. That is why this company doesn't have anyone who has more than 2 years of experience with the company. The upper level staff of VPs, directors, and managers have been with the company for a few years only because of nepotism and favoritism. Most don't have a graduate degree and have never worked for any other companies. Lack of education and experience in the upper management level leads to the bad management. Its all about manipulation and shady deals if you want to be promoted. Talent doesn't count. VPs are rude, inappropriate and disrespectful to the employees. They build some "star" employees up with sky high expectations, then blame them when things don't pan out. Management will change the company structure every other month without adequate explanation as to why. It's also risky. The company mainly relies on one big customer and their client base is only in one subset of the retail industry. The company has been around for 15 years or so and still has only about 50-60 employees! Company always claims 'we keep hiring' but what they never mention is, more people leave than join.

    Advice to Management

    Hire a REAL management staff with REAL work experience and good education. Train them well on how to treat employees. Hire a real C-level executive to help craft the company structure and vision.

    Pros

    Good place to start out after college. Pretty flexible on vacation, remote working/telecommuting (a little too flexible), and work life balance.

    Cons

    1) Technical staff appeared to be ignored/under appreciated at the expense of high paid sales persons who produce little results. 2) There is a tremendous amount of people with only experience at Edifice. Combine that with lack of overall executive experience and you have a recipe for disaster! 3) I personally didn't think they charged enough for their services. When you dedicate individual employees to one customer or service and you don't charge enough you're going to lose $ in the long run. 4) The morale. A lot of turnover in a relatively short period. I don't know if they're in denial or just oblivious but there's serious retention problems. 5) Lack of a structure. They seemed to change their structure/hierarchy every 5 minutes. They didn't do a great job explaining why.

    Advice to Management

    Find a strategy and stick with it. Only re-org if absolutely necessary or and if you do you better have strong justification. Hire a true CIO.
