Pros

Flexibility AWS in IT. Ability to do what you want because everything is very decentralized. No policies; so hard to break rules.

Cons

A lot of ancient people in IT. Recognition given when things break otherwise ignored. A lot of people who have lost interest in work.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Changes are finally hapening in IT. A lot of dead weight in the organization. Create a more collaborative environment and train managers.

    Average (on average). Fun products to develop; poor opportunities to learn.

    Pros

    The pay is descent, the work/life balance is good. Coworkers are fun.

    Cons

    Opportunities to learn from one another aren't very good nor is there any sponsored training to stay with the cutting edge. Instead there is training for the mundane which really an engineer should be able to figure out on their own (e.g. how to use the email program).

    The feel from upper management is that they do not care about the employee. They want to know what they can get from us rather than what they can do for us (or at least provide incentive to work hard). Morale is low.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper management needs to trust their lower management more. They seem to seek scapegoats rather than accept responsibility on their part. They have driven away good people and are continuing to do so.
