    Pros

    no pros - absolutely none.

    Cons

    oh where to start: many cons - some to know are: work schedule expectation while flexible is code for "60 hour weeks". Management is just horrible - no positive feedback - ever.

    Advice to Management

    Fire yourselves!!! and be realistice regarding your talents: not one of you have any talent for management and especially, i dont believe *any of you* should be in IT management

    Pros

    Good salary, good benefits - really liked the group of people I worked with. They had respect for me and I had respect for them .

    Cons

    Could not progress beyond certain level unless I had college degree. I had the experience but not the degree therefore, I was not eligible for any promotions. Also at play within FDC is lots of corporate politics - if you ever cross (disagree with) any manager, watch out for your back because you'll be on the next "lay off" list and it has nothing to do with your performance. I had been with same group of people for 12 years and at age 63 was out the door. I always had the highest review rankings so it had nothing to do with ability.

    Most technical employees were basically on call 24 hrs. a day, 7 days a week.

    Advice to Management

    Promote based on abiility, not just on educational level. There is intuitive intelligence and book smarts. Intuitive intelligence is by far a broader intellect (problem solving) than someone who has been educated strictly by the book. And make sure when you do lay someone off that there is no vindictive motivation behind the act. You are taking away someone's livelihood to assuage a manager's ego.
