Pros

Rewarded for performance.
Rewarded for being healthy.
Not afraid of new technologies.
Relaxed athmosphere.
Clear communication about company wide issues.

Cons

Low salaries and raises.
Lots of good talk but hardly any walk.
Very restricted IT environment.
Communication barrier to Senior management.

Advice to Management

Start by allowing the departments not in direct contact with the Department of Education to perform at their full ability by removing the un-necessary security restrictions. Catching up to the latest salary trends and paying the employees what they deserve would also help.

    Pros

    Rapidly growing company that does not outsource. Good corporate events. Great senior management. Nice office not located in the congested Tech Center

    Cons

    Health and life insurance could be better.


  2. Nice vacation time but you'll never get to use it - deathmarches, mgmt incomptence, etc.

    Pros

    Decent benefits package with 22 days vacation to start. Casual dress

    Cons

    You'll never get to take your 22 days vacation because the incompetent management and extremely poor, seat of the pants project planning will doom you to working 60+ hour weeks and deathmarch projects. Incredibly out of date technology and non-technical management afraid of making decisions of any kind. Pay average at best with miniscule bonuses if any. A few favored technical architects with zero skills and no social skills get to set direction. Employees treated like replaceable cogs.

    Only people I would recommend working there are contractors since they get paid well, don't have to be on call, and get to work on better stuff than the permenent employees.

    Advice to Management

    You were the problem and from what I here are still there. Move on and let someone who knows what they are doing run things.
