Pros

Great people, marketable pay, training and professional development, pays up to $25K towards PHD.

Cons

Management often does not take the time to actually "manage" and develop staff. Positive reinforcement can go a long way.

Advice to Management

Take time to develop staff, provide cross training opportunities, take a direct approach to ee issues

    Pros

    Relaxed work environment, stability, time for personal growth

    Cons

    pay, limited growth opportunities for outsiders, discrimination in some quarters of the IT organization

    Advice to Management

    especially in few areas of IT- management is too old who think of themselves as experienced being at Duke so long..but they have to understand that, its not 'experienced' but known as 'Aged' .Aged cheese is good but not the aged inefficient and incompetent management . Also learn from other biggies in the area like banks as to how to realize the potential of multicultural people...and let them grow and bring a different perspective to the organization.

  2. Silos, Very Political, A lot of Dead Weight

    Pros

    Good benefits. You can contract forever if you are a contractor.

    Cons

    Cross-Team collaboration is horrible. Everyone is too busy trying to protect their turf and avoid responsibility\blame. Technically inept in some departments. A lot of long time employees are using technology like it was still the year 2000. Very resistant to change and new ideas. Too many folks are there just to collect a paycheck and retire.
