OK - but could be better

IT Analyst (Current Employee)
Houston, TX

ProsBIg company with worldwide presence. The pay is competetive but could be better to attract better talent. They spent a lot of money to upgrade SAP this past year and are finally moving their data center in to a "real" data center.

ConsOnce run by Dick Cheney - political impact of that is tough to overcome no matter what. Outsourcing (as in all IT shops) is a threat that seems to be growing but there are areas that seem safe from this. Inter-group department comuninication can be improved. Sometimes it appears you have to come from the outside to get promoted to a senior position.

Advice to Senior ManagementFocus on the staff - make a concerted efort to improve morale. Promote from witin instead of always bringing in from the outside.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
