If you are in IT, don't bother with this place... you'll just be frustrated.

Pros

Great Benefits and Training. Very nice people who want to do a good job.

Cons

IT: They need to follow the SDLC like everyone else and quit letting the business make technology decisions. The only reason projects are completed is because of heroic efforts by a few people and they are rarely rewarded. The 'business' side runs the show and the software development/technology side is at their mercy. Now, they're outsourcing development/testing to India and doing so while also trying to implement CMMI processes and become CMMI certified.

Advice to Management

Wake UP! CMMI isn't solving your problems because the process isn't 'really' being followed. By the time you see an audit, all the Ts are crossed and the Is are dotted, but don't kid yourself... the process wasn't followed. You still have chaos in your software development. You just look good on paper... AFTER the project is over.
