Comfortable and frustrating place to work for IS individuals

IS Architect (Current Employee)
Wilmington, DE

ProsCompany 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.

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