Unfortunately my experience with them was one of the most demoralizing throughout my twenty year career in IT.

Pros

Great company for obtaining work / life balance.
Compensation was excellent.

Cons

IT Leadership was not adequately skilled at assessing employee skills. Evaluation of skills appeared to be based on superficial characteristics, such as certifications obtained, and ability to attend and present at local and/or national conferences. They have made significant changes in IT Sr. Leadership over the past year that may have addressed this short coming.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Hire and promote staff that are able to obtain results. Make sure you stay in close contact with your employees to understand who those people are and reward them by giving them credit for work accomplished.

    Pros

    Lower management knows their people and act as a great advocate both for corporate goals and their employees.

    Cons

    Upper management is two faced. Everyone knows they are shopping India to replace key teams but they won't come out and tell employees what is going on. How can you run a professional shop when you treat rank and file employees like children.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Come clean with your employees. When you refuse to commit to us, don't act surprised when we don't commit to you!...
