Pros

the name recognition. I guess the doors it opens after youre an alumni

Cons

obviously the hours are no fun. but perhaps the group i was in left a much more sour taste in my mouth than the hours. I'm sure its based off different groups, but i heard stories from other members complaining abou the same issues. too much politics for my taste

Advice to Management

better training! i had zero training. was expected to learn the internal software on my own all the middle of a tax season.

    Pros

    1. Good people in the local office.
    2. Decent benefits package.
    3. Challenging work environment.
    4. The original culture used to be very nurturing and productive.

    Cons

    1. Annual performance review process is a joke. Hard work and dedication get you nothing. Promotions are based on strategic need and politics, not merit.

    2. Too many chiefs, not enough Indians. Unrealistic expectations combined with being perpetually understaffed has lead to stressful working relationships with upper management.

    3. Organization's reliance on layoffs and outsourcing has damaged its' core heath and weakened the underpinnings of its' operational effectiveness and culture.

    Advice to Management

    Senior leadership need to make the heath and continuity of the IT organization a priority. Weak upper management and politics continue to impact ROI. Stop laying off people to pay for your mistakes and mismanagement.
