Pros

Company culture is very supportive and people oriented. You can maintain a worklife balance and advance your career at the same time. Overall compensation is above average compared to other industries.

Cons

Culture is very forgiving and supportive, so that is a double edged sword when you need to drop the hammer on vendors and partners--they are not held accountable for mistakes which is a shame. In the IS organization, many functions are outsourced and the competency of SI partners are average, so vendor management skills are more emphasized. There are few areas where you will find thought leadership and innovation and the general skill level of IS employees are not being developed.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Improve vendor management and accountability. Ensure leaders develop their functional compentency and leadership skills before they are promoted.

    Pros

    If you are in sales it is a wonderful place. They do not make people work hard. Many of the hangers on make a career out of taking credit for other people's work.

    Cons

    You will not have many opportunities if you are not in sales. They do not value specialization; they want everyone to be a generalist. Hard work will work against you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Add mandatory retirement after so many years in executive role. Short your stock.
