    Pros

    Enjoyed co-workers
    Matched the 401K
    Health Insurance and Paid personal days and holidays

    Cons

    Management does not develop its human capital. Management does not work with employees to reconcile personal goals with the organizational goals to increase productivity and profitability. My department was a machine and the employee was/is a small cog caught in the daily minutia of unimportant tasks dictated to them which they must adhere to in order to keep his/her job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Perhaps you may reconsider the value of the human being, the mind, one's capabilities, and creativity. This is hard to do once everyone is turned into a mechanical cog in the micromanaged management box.

    Pros

    Good Benefits. Good opportunities to learn.

    Cons

    1. 60-80 hour expected work weeks in IT.
    2. Little appreciation for "extra" work as 60-80 hours becomes expected
    3. No prioritization process as everything has to be done.
    4. Lack of management support
    5. Toxic talking behind people's back environment to promote individual's and individual's agenda.
    6. High continuous turnover.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    you will get what you sow. I'd encourage some solid management development philosophies on people management and team building. Managing by fear is not an endearing philosophy and can not be sustained.
