Pros

Lots of change. In my 15 years, I've never been bored. The admin community is strong, and there are plenty of opportunities to enhance your career.

Cons

Lots of change. New technology doesn't always scale properly and there are bugs to work through, causing a lot of frustration in getting your job done. Some processes take too many steps to complete. Politics come and go, although I'm sure that's the same with any other company. Hiring admins thru agencies (budget purposes) makes it challenging for FTEs to find a new position.

Advice to Management

Stay in touch with your workforce.

    Pros

    Willing to change based on the market needs.

    Cons

    Constant change. No longer a innovator more of a follower

    Advice to Management

    Cut the management. Too many VP's running the org's like their kingdoms.

    Pros

    A challenging work place that treats it's SE's very well. Even though some first line managers aren't the best, the overall culture is positive.

    Cons

    Once you negotiate a salary that is it for a while. They control pay raises closely and after a couple of years you realize that you are no longer being paid at an industry standard.
