Pros

Good solid job if you have it (and are able to keep it... lots of layoffs lately). Work at home is allowed.

Cons

Lots of layoffs this year in IT. Large offshore presence in India, which means USA IT jobs are never really safe.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Realize that knowledge that's not inhouse is knowledge lost.

    Pros

    flexibility with work load, friendly people, good training, good opportunities when communicated. can turn into a career if one is focused on such however it is just a job. if you can catch a manager's eye and prove that you're an asset, they'll help.

    Cons

    terrible medical benefits, work politics come into play more often than expected, no flexibility nor considerations for promotions. someone could get the same promotion as you and you may have worked harder. obvious favoritism does occur.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    give promotions and bonuses based on merit and make it an equal system. remove the "class" structure regarding the promotion scale.

    Pros

    It's a job and the people are generally very friendly.

    Cons

    Management views employees as a necessary expense for doing business; little or now employee loyalty is the result. They also initiate a number of initiatives to improve employee morale and assess advancement opportunities, but these initiatives are insincere. Often, these initiatives are reviewed against metrics regarding participation and completion rates (ex: 100% of employees reviewed), but little or no attention is givne to the quality of information exchanged. And, little or no followup. Lastly, for being a healthcare company, their employee health benefits are the worst I've ever had. They often "experiement" with new HC benefits programs and force them on the employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your employees as an asset and value their experience and knowlege to develop a committed loyal staffing model.
