Pros

Opportunity to work different accounts in a large corporation is there worldwide. Pretty good communication from the corporate leaders. Work all depends on what account you are assigned.

Cons

They are all about outsourcing jobs. Internally, they have outsourced the HelpDesk and Health Care Tier I call centers, and it is horrible.

Advice to Management

Learn that a good project management process and team makes or breaks systems. Get back to basics instead of pushing silly security policies and ITIL foundations.

    Pros

    Online access to all your HR information, training available (depending on what account you are on), fairly high compensation.

    Cons

    Management always seems to be in a constant state of panic. Contracts seem to be signed and agreements made without consulting technical leadership and so there are always "gotchas" where client expectations and deliverables do not match up with reality.

    Advice to Management

    Leverage the shared infrastructure in Corporate to actually provide some value to the downstream accounts. Provide more robust retention programs for senior skilled technical employees.

    Pros

    Salary isn't bad, you can work from home mostly.

    Cons

    Bad communication, manager/supervisor so over worked they have no idea whats going on on their area. Liitle to no leadership. Each client gets to do things their own way so no two clients are alike

    Advice to Management

    All manager/supervisor more time to work with their group instead if the "fire" of the day.
