    Pros

    - Convenient flex-time, if you're in the right department (otherwise, it'll be frowned upon...even though it's permitted per the employee covenants). - Relatively okay place to work if you're looking for work-life balance; but not much else.

    Cons

    - Opportunity within the organization is reserved for family-members of people in charge; or "friends of the program" (yes: nepotism happens everywhere, but it is very much ingrained as part of how incestual ISO operates) - No rhyme or reason to what you're working toward (i.e. - PMP process is a joke [largely self-written by employees], promotions are typically at-random - and during the years in which you feel you deserve them least, as opposed to others where you truly applied yourself) - Don't expect to keep up with the joneses, in terms of compensation. Cost of living will skyrocket, while ISO will pass off the con-job of "being competitive within the industry" - they are not anywhere close, and will have you behind in the rat race before too long. Just take a look at how much you pay to get to the office, and how much it increases through the years....ISO will give you, literally, a couple of dollars toward that each year. - Having gone public a few years back, "bigwigs" are just becoming self-aware, which is scary. Downgrades to cubicle space, in favor of a more "wide-open" environment.....so that CFO's can save money, etc., etc., etc. To me, that translates to - "aggravating employees in order to save a few fistfuls" --- better hope it's someday reflected in their paychecks!

    Advice to Management

    Think back to how many employees have played you through the years - for degrees, advanced degrees, and professional certifications......only to walk as soon as they were completed. Would it have been better for the good of the organization to compensate/keep them? I had once read a review on here: entry-level, for life - not far off.


  2. Good company to gain experience but something fishy going on.

    Pros

    You get to work on many different thing in IT.

    Cons

    PMO directives have been very very confusing. PMO chief brought in from nowhere and disappeared after creating havoc. Good CIO but took too long to provide details on PMO chief status. Result is that PM's are nervous. Need good leadership.

    Advice to Management

    Your family will be at ease if you are transparent.
