    Pros

    Great downtown location
    Great onsite amenities so you rarely need to leave the building for anything
    Executives are very friendly and personable, which us very rare

    Cons

    IT is SLOW as molasses and management is not as receptive to change as they claim to be. The IT department is great for those looking to either jump start their technical career or those complacent in their careers and just looking for a stable employer to work out the remainder of years until retirement. There is much talk about MBM, wanting employees to drive innovation and challenging management. The truth is, most employees here are much older, set in their ways and resist any talk of change, especially from younger employees, which there aren't very many by the way. There does not seem to be much opportunity for growth and advancement for younger professionals due to older management, who do not appear to be leaving anytime soon. Any seasoned IT professional coming in with formal processes, procedures, etc, none of it matters and is unwelcome here. Everything is done at a very basic level so if you come from more formal and structured IT environments, this most likely will not be the place for you unless you're ok with "dumbing it down".

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more receptive to new ideas and truly allow employees to innovate without immediate resistance. Otherwise, I don't see ambitious, creative and highly talented professionals staying with the company long term.
