Advice to ManagementAdvice

Didn't appreciate Bobby D saying how everyone is replaceable because he has a stack of 20K application from college students around the world. I mean that was just awesome.

    Pros

    Helpful People who are easily approachable

    Cons

    No Innovation- Run of the Mill projects.Innovation is not encouraged at all.
    HR policies are ludicrous in some cases...You are judged by what you wear rather than by what you do- which frankly speaking is pathetic.
    Ridiculous security measures. Takes ages to get approvals for anything as small as a database access.
    HR is highly incompetent and is in total disconnect with the people who rake in the business.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The HR department needs a major overhaul if you want good people to stay . The HR should stop meddling in other's work.
