    Pros

    I love the fast-paced challenging environment. If you work hard and remain consistent in your efforts you will be promoted. ESI offers opportunities to employees with experience and having a degree is not required to work your way up. I like that they prefer to promote from within and value practical job experience within the company. The environment is one of fairness and equal opportunity and all of the supervisors and managers that I have worked with have been very approachable and quick to help when a problem arises.

    Cons

    It is difficult for some to get used to having your schedule micro-managed down to the minute as is the case with entry level positions. For positions which require the individual to field phone calls 8 hours a day, it can be very stressful and sometimes emotionally draining. You are the sounding board for people who are affected by corporate decisions which often affect their health, decisions that you may or may not agree with personally and are often subjected to wishing there was more that you could do to help.

    Advice to Management

    Positive feedback and recognition are much appreciated by your employees! While attendance and adherence are of utmost importance, it would be nice to have a little bit more flexibility with our schedules.

    Pros

    The IT group had a good attitude, the projects were interesting, and the office STL HQ office facilities were up-to-date. Also had a good worklife balance.

    Cons

    Too many separate dept PMO processes which resulted in spending too much time navigating through all the governance red tape instead of using that time to deliver quality scope on-time and within budget and building a stable scalable IT platform environment.

    Advice to Management

    Need to streamline the project & portfolio in-take, status reporting, and governance processes and get the CORRECT people with the right PM experience to drive it (not just a PMP cert--but have the practical/hands-on multi-year experience with ACTUALLY managing med-high complex projects or programs). Leadership need to listen to constructive input about what is TRULY required to deliver a scope initiative and have a faster PRO-ACTIVE decision turn-around response to that input instead of stalling to make a decision and then being re-active.
