Pros

The brand looks good on your resume.

Cons

The department is constantly restructuring. It has not seen a period of stability over six months for at least 5 years now.

With each successive change in senior leadership, each CIO tries to add their mark. The current leadership makes top down, broad technology decisions on a whim. There is no transparency, no decision making process. Vendors are selected by one person without visibility.

With a SAP project that is now grossly over budget, completely unrealistic delivery dates are being set and people have been working for months long hours and weekends. There has been no room for intelligent dissent. Voices that do not echo the new management are rapidly replaced by friends of the new senior management.

With the unpredictability from senior leadership, the middle management turf wars are rife. With managers so concerned about their jobs and appearances that they are not effectively managing their people.

Commitments are made to stave off wrath from above that are completely unrealistic and cannot be met. Staff are now starting to leave in droves.

Morale has been low for some time now and is likely to remain that way. Engagement scores in company surveys have sat around 43%.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

If you have a dysfunctional department, look to the top. That's where culture comes from. When the company pays for you to do your MBA, make sure you take head in those lectures about management styles and organisational behaviour. There is no one else to blame. Listen to your people, there's a reason they were hired, they know what they're talking about.

Be transparent and open minded in your decision making, and stop hiring friends from past companies who will echo only your own sentiments.
