Pros

Decent salary. Huge investment in IT. Able to move sideways to new jobs. Willing to try new things.

Cons

Shuffle, shuffle, shuffle. Lots of people movement which has to be expensive. Cutting a lot of IT jobs in Boston and moving to TX, NC or overseas. sometimes there is too much willingness to try new things; there are 4 tools for everything, little is integrated, and standardization is not often found. Certain groups have lots of politics. Not a lot of upward mobility.

Advice to Management

Stop the shuffle; I'm sure you think this is an advantage, but it causes upheaval and costs a fortune. Pick a couple tools; stick with them for more than 4 months. Morale is crashing, at least in IT, because the corp direction, while clear, clearly says we don't care about the IT people in New England.

    Strong training program. Great offices, they take care of their employees.

    Pay is not one of the highest, but the tradeoff is long term financial benefits.
