Pros

Within IT, large opportunities to grow and learn technology in the area you are interested in. Great employees to work with, large amount of training (1-2 months) offered to everyone, great atmosphere, excellent place for new hires.

Cons

Work/Life balance is pretty bad. There are many initiatives within the company and some individuals are overworked & way too many organization changes.

Advice to Management

If managers have teams/employees around the globe/nationwide, make sure to look over their workload and offer assistance. Communication is important.

    Pros

    Great benefits (401k, decent health care, 16 holidays, and 3 weeks PTO)
    Opportunity to shape IT process
    Nice diverse talent with an even mix of young, mid career, and senior staff
    Company is making an effort to turn itself around since restructuring after bankruptcy

    Cons

    While you have a chance to shape IT process, it doesn't exist or has so much red tape it is a headache to overcome.

    The company sells itself as being agile with a lot of opportunity to create new innovation. The reality is much of the work in the immediate term and next 5 years will be cleaning up the mess of decades of contractors and poor coding standards.

    Some managers and departments are blatantly abusing college hires. When hired, these employees are put into a special bucket with decent raises for the first three years. In some instances these employees are given lead responsibilities (or the whole ROLE) and expected to perform at that level. For those that can handle the additional work it is a great opportunity. Unfortunately they receive the same wage and raises as their non-lead college hires counterparts. HR does not allow these employees who take on higher role work and excel at it to be reclassified and given proper compensation.

    Advice to Management

    Try to cut down on the red tape and push for that innovation you strive for.

    Stop taking advantage of college hires. These kids talk and word spreads. You don't want to be known as "that" company to avoid. After three years, these rookie draft picks that took on extra responsibilities and proved their worth will leave for the competition to get PAID!
