    Current Employee - IT Project Manager  in  Houston, TX
    Current Employee - IT Project Manager in Houston, TX

    Pros

    Good pay & benefits.
    Depending on assignment, good co-workers.

    Cons

    Forced ranking process, completely depends on "who you know."
    Black-box job assignment process - attempting to apply directly for a position is a no-no.
    Management gives lipservice to work/life balance, but only promotes extended seat-warmers. Therefore, high hours = high performance (a strict performance comparison is apparently just too difficult).
    "Nanny" safety policies - must hold handrails on stairs, etc.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Lose the ranking system. At best, it ensures the best butt-kissers get promoted. At worst, it encourages a short-sighted culture, since prior years are ignored. This is why there are so many projects that look good on paper, but afterwards turn out to be useless, or worse. Even pro-ranking experts seem to agree that it only works for a couple of years.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
