IT Department - Grown into a beast of a company with a Cain and Able IT department.

IT - Engineer (Current Employee)
San Antonio, TX

ProsThe company has been growing steady for years now. The issues that plagued the IT department with low budgets on inferior hardware was being fixed. The IT department was a good place to get your feet wet to learn and grow into a better technician. There were plans to revamp and build IT as an enterprise class department.

ConsIT went through a major restructure in the last integration of the company's it has purchased. With the restructure came new head management people were fired with in hours. IT was splintered between Energy Transfer legacy IT and the acquired company's IT. There is a wall between them that still has no been broken. Being on the legacy end will most likely result in loosing your job and being belittled. The acquired company's IT doesn't understand the infrastructure of what was built and no idea how to use the tools that they have taken control over. This has resulted in the end users having to deal with the pain and suffering of an inadequate IT department. The new management is focused on the idea of best practice to the point that it hinders them useless and system fail while they have meetings talking about the failing system.

Advice to Senior ManagementYou have lost your core values in the company that was built and profitable. Taken on ALL the aspects of the acquired company is a mistake. Things can be learned from them but the principles of the company should not change. Replacing the people who built the company not just in IT is not the responsible thing to do.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
