Pros

Working in the department of digital analytics and consumer insight I was privelaged to work with some of the best web analytics professionals in the world. My direct boss, provided plenty of direction and gave me tons of autonomy to get my work done and work on special scripting projects which I enjoyed. I also worked closely with the GA implementation manager, logical architecture consultants, the entire product analytics team, web marketing analysts, and developers. Working here has by far been the most rewarding yet challenging role I've ever been in.

Cons

Enterprise-wide re-orgs, consistent lay-offs, and ultra-bureaucratic IT department. This is typical of many large enterprises and also related to the current state of the economy and nature of the changing online education business.

Advice to Management

Please continue to hire more interns, but also make the hiring process more challenging. As you

    Pros

    Fairly Stable environment. Decent work-life balance. Decent Pay and Benefits. Lots of interesting technology. Nice common areas with snack and soda machines, refrigerators, microwaves, coffee. Healthy snacks often provided (apples, bananas, popcorn).

    Cons

    Lack of empowerment. Organizational changes on a regular basis. Technology professionals are treated as replaceable cogs in a machine. Many groups with often conflicting goals lead to many deadlocks in production. Spotty review process. Raises and promotions are often capped across departments.

    Advice to Management

    Truly empower your technology employees to deliver. Develop a culture where your employees feel valued for the contribution they make.
