Pros

The company has doubled in size since I started and is expected to be a $7+ B organization in the next 5 years. Opportunity to help "build" the company. Great bonuses if you perform. Work with very smart people looking to make an impact!

Cons

Not always a great work/life balance! Systems are not what they should/need to be for a company of this size. Still fairly high turnover but has improved drastically and the owner and executive team are very focused on continued improvement.

    Top executive staff is not IT literate nor wants to be.

    Pros

    IT staff try very hard, are very intelligent and loyal hoping that brass ring is gold.

    Cons

    Executive staff changes IT staff like most people change their bed sheets! The executive staff is constantly looking for IT staff to make everything perfect without the patience or intellect to understand IT process or reasons of documentation and other required formalities. The first in executive command knows less about IT than any business owner should and the second in command has convinced everyone else he knows business and IT, but daily actions prove he does not.

    The general method of operation from the top down is to use people as disposable tools and not humans. To use-up these human resources without concern, to disregard human family needs, to trod upon the very resources that put more money in the pockets of the executive management.

    Use, abuse and discard is the philosophy of everything the executive staff does.

    Advice to Management

    Stop using IT completely and go back to your magnetic progress boards, handheld calculators, paper reports and 18th century business information model. You do not deserve the benefits of modern technology.
