Just when you think it couldn't get any worse

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

ProsThe previous CIO leaving was the best thing that could have happened!

ConsAfter already having a sub-par IS organization it just got worse. Executive management needs to wake up and look who they have in charge of the IS organization. No strategic thinking sits at the top any more. They keep wasting money by outsourcing everything technical and pay way to much to boot. Nobody sitting on the IS senior team has the experience they need to run a world class IT operation.

Advice to Senior ManagementHire Bain or some other outside consulting group to do a deep dive comparison on how world class IT organizations are run and then hire seasoned professionals to run the organization the way it should be run

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Pros: The money. For some it's great; no need to own anything, you'll… Cons: Departments function as silos; any cross functional attempts are discouraged, squashed, result in reprimands. No work life… Advice to Senior Management: Eliminate the management team and start over; focus on teamwork… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
