Pros

Great company to work for, provide good benefits and healthcare options, work life balance is great. CO seems like they have a good pipeline

Cons

IT department is a total wreck. Both CIO and IT Corporate SVP lack integrity, effectiveness and honesty. No transparency. Management spends unnecessary budget to get the same or higher budget following years. Give too much business to friends and relatives. It is also disappointing to see multiple internal fraud instances over last few years in IT but the top management culprits are not held responsible. Great company, CEO, CFO are extremely bright but If you want to work for Forest, avoid Informatics department by all means.

Advice to Management

Remove CIO and SVP Corporate IT and directs. Appoint new CIO and IT management .Make the department better and there will be no negative impact to the company.
