    It was a good place until WAMU took over the IT department.

    Pros

    The mission of the center is wonderful. Lots of smart people work here.

    Cons

    IT department has lost its soul. Most managers are from WAMU so it's very corporate now. Instead of collaborative, it's adversarial between departments now.
