    Pros

    Great people, fun company culture, challenging projects, beautiful office space.

    Cons

    lack of resources (budget), lack of man power = extremely long hours, company seems to be cutting costs to the extreme, no opportunities to advance in my particular department.

    Advice to Management

    Stop cutting costs just to make your number to Providence. There is collateral damage you may think just goes away on its own, but it wont. You cant expect the same level of service after reducing headcount and getting rid of contractors and consultants.

  2. It's only going to get better... new leadership, new vision, a new Blackboard.

    Transparency has been great, please keep that up... some decisions have been surprising.
