    Pros

    The PAS initiative is great for this company, unfortunately the CIO is incompetent to handle it effectively.

    Cons

    IT team is really talented. But the weakest link is the CIO who is rude and obnoxious and talks behind the back of all his peers n looks down upon his IT team...Not a fun guy to work for!

    Advice to Management

    Put in credible people in charge of top positions

    Pros

    Free lunch, stability while promotional opportunities are minimal.

    Cons

    There are many senior employees and managers that are in their position because of tenure and don't do anything. They also collect 100k + yet senior management still complains about money shortages. You have junior programmers and IT staff that work extremely hard and get pay low wages. I can name 10 high level positions that we can do without. It's amazing how much office politics happens at this place.

    Advice to Management

    Promotion plans should be fair and not subjective but rather supported by performance record. Ask more of your senior staff and challenge them to earn their keep rather than wait until time runs out to retirement.
