Great first years but became rather toxic later.

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Omaha, NE

ProsMore dynamic in regards to I.T than you'd expect for a big established blue chip type company. You were encouraged and supported to 'be bold'. Senior management recognized that employees individually and as groups must be permitted to innovate. This started to fall apart later as things became more and more politically contaminated.

ConsQuite top heavy in the middle layers of management and all paths and definitions of success were defined by how fast you made it into management. This stifles technical excellence and created weird situations where one person might report to 3 same level managers.

Advice to Senior ManagementReduce management by about one third in all layers and foster self organizing teams that can exert their maximum energy toward building competitive products and running lean projects through quickly. Share the rewards at all levels and not just to those that made it to management.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
