Pros

People are nice.
Work load isn't outrageous.
Family oriented work place (for some employees).
Not a high stress level job.

Cons

For those who are looking for challenges and looking for growth in their careers, this is a nice start. But not for the long haul.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Value your employees. If you take care of your people they won't dread coming to work in the mornings. Spoil your employees, they will work harder.

    Pros

    it pays well considering the median wages. no hot seating. free coffee and water! pot lucks almost weekly. over ok.

    Cons

    management couldn't do your job. management holds grudges. management will abuse power. you will be looked at as expendable. will let you go for frivolous reasons.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get your heads out and take care of the people that make your performance/service levels good. Promote within no more outside management.

    Cranking out work is #1 priority while improving quality and efficiency are low on the list.

    Pros

    Great opportunities for helping to improve systems. Benefits are good by most standards. Coworkers and mid-level management are generally good, courteous, well intended people. The effects of recent changes in upper management will eventually be felt throughout the company.

    Cons

    Technology seems to receive less priority than it deserves. Trust between management and other employees and between departments is not as high as it could be, resulting in lots of time spent on "CYA". Plenty of focus on working hard, but not so much on working smart. Workload requires employees to choose between meeting deadlines, meeting reasonable quality standards (which are not always emphasized or properly monitored), and "voluntarily" working more than 40 hours per week.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If employees are so mistrusted that the pens and pencils must be kept under lock and key, there's a problem with employees' lack of integrity or with management's unwarranted mistrust -- either way, this needs to be corrected.

    The practical substance of Coventry's business is the collection and processing of data. Why are core technologies 10-20 years old? Recent hardware upgrade consisted of swapping out 17" CRTs for 19" LCD monitors -- really? If IT is the goose, the eggs are more often rotten than golden.

    Pay to hire adults and then treat them like the adults they are. Engage them. Trust them. Empower them.

    The company's current leaders may already get this -- let's see how Coventry progresses during 2012.
