Pros

Good health benefits if you participate in Healthy Pathway program
Cafe is nice plus as an employee you get a discounted price as an employee.

Cons

I have been here less than 5 months and I am ready to leave. Many of my issues are the same ones others have already posted.

Senior management acts as if you should be happy you have a job.

    Pros

    Good Health benefits.
    On site cafe.
    Worked with some great people.

    Cons

    Leadership will praise your hard work and long hours but less than a minute later will tell you that you should be happy you have a job in this economy.

    Too many managers and not enough staff to actually do the work which leads to a very stressful work environment trying to turn a deliverable around in a short period of time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My advice would be to begin thinking of your IT staff as an valuable asset and not as a expendible resource.

    Comments from IT leadership describing why IT professionals chose IT as a career like "this is the life we chose" only highlights your distain for your employees. I think you would be hard pressed to find anybody in IT who chose it as a career so they could work long hours including weekends and major holidays.

    Current Employee - IT Manager in Saint Louis, MO

    Pros

    Plenty of room for growth

    Cons

    Building at physical capacity and most groups severly understaffed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Senior leadership completely out of touch with employees. Hire more resources and shuffle them around less.
