    Pros

    Pay - You definately get paid well for all of the BS and degradation you receive.
    Benefits - Great benefits

    Cons

    IT Ohio Region is a total joke. The department is run like a kindergarten class/Union shop. Management style is total old school and favoritism comes from doing it their way, length of tenure, entitlement and the Popularity score.

    If you have a mind of your own, common sense and good ideas, this is not the place for you.

    If you have specific career goals, this is not the place for you.

    If you like doing things that don't make sense and can keep your ideas to yourself, you will do well here.

    If you like management deciding your career path for you, you will love this place.

    They say that KPIT Ohio is the little region that could. I would say it's the little region that can't and just wont die. It looses millions every year and the facilities and physicians are low quality and over worked.

    Most people in IT talk a good talk and have great status reports but nothing to back any of it up.

    They always say they want change but they never do anything about it and repramand any one that tries.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Empower your employees. Some of you need to stop micro mananaging them. Stop acting like you know something about the department you are managing just because you read a book on the subject. If you don't really know, let the experts shine. Show respect for your employees.
