Pros

Very nice Data Center and IT technology implemented by the core IT team.

Cons

Unfortunately, be it financial issues or other, the IT department has been dissolved from 12-15 highly skilled management, systems, operations and development professionals down to two associates which was preceded by the management decision to convert a .net development shop to open source with the expect results being ?. The resulting efforts have not met well with the company’s efforts and its investors now viewing AlphaMetrix as having a poor and shaky IT foundation.

    Pros

    Nice people, visionary leader, diverse professional culture that lends itself to cross-training (to an extent). Fantastic ideas and lots of them.

    Cons

    Goal is as erratic as visionaries are known to be. This unfortunately is not tempered by management and leadership experience. Direction is often changed with full explanation and reasoned decisions but the biggest changes are made without explanation and utterly without reason. Loyalty also counts for nothing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Follow proper business practices, for that matter, practices should actually be defined in the first place. If performance is not satisfactory then communication to that effect would be helpful. Barring that, explanation after the fact would be useful as well.

    Avoid the sweeping changes that seem to be so popular.

    Pros

    A lot of vision, rapid growth, flat organization, decent travel policy, new office and great office location in the Loop, two monitors per desk.

    Cons

    The company had high turnover, experienced frequent changes to the business model, and long hours were normal for some departments.
