I have been working at Altria full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

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

Cons

After 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 Management

Hire 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

    Pros

    The money. For some it's great; no need to own anything, you'll get moved in less than two years and can then claim ignorance.

    Cons

    Departments function as silos; any cross functional attempts are discouraged, squashed, result in reprimands. No work life balance. Obnoxious managers Antiquated technology Lack of leadership "Big Company" mentality (we're the biggest, so we dictate) Competitive (aka backstabbing) environment

    Advice to Management

    Eliminate the management team and start over; focus on teamwork and customer service.
