    Pros

    Very good 401k plan. They match 100% up to 6% of your salary. 40 days of "sick" time broken down into specific categories - sickness in family, personal sickness, and about 30 more categories.

    Cons

    - the work environment depends on who you work for
    - they have this thing called "management discretion" which means whatever is in the policy manual is simply a suggestion and the managers can basically do what they want
    - NO training, but if you want to take courses at the local tech college go for it. Plus they won't reimburse you and you probably won't get to work in your area of study
    - LIMITED ability to transfer to other departments. If you're lucky enough to pass the HR established requirements, then you get to apply for 1 position every 3 months.
    - NO significant raises. IT's been on the 0% to1% path for several years now and you practically have to walk on water to get 1%
    - unlimited overtime. you are welcome to work as many hours as you can for salary with minimal comp time.

    Again, it all depends on which area of the company you work for, but there are more IT areas that are similar to what is described here - but there are rumors of happy employees and good managers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There are too many levels of management and too many divisions of IT. Upper level management needs to be stream lined. This probably would get IT on the same page.
