Pros

Liberty is a huge company with a huge IT organization. If you get your foot in the door and you do well, you can be guaranteed that you'll be able to move around and try different things you're interested in. Also, the majority of the workers in IT are *very* nice. I worked in Portsmouth, NH and Dover, NH and the majority of those I interacted with daily were great people, I ended up making lots of good friends there. The compensation is also good and you get a lot of time off.

Cons

I worked in IT, and you can tell that the business does not appreciate or understand the value that IT provides to their business. I believe that this is in part caused by the fact that middle management in IT (not necessarily executive management) hides the truth about IT operations in order to save face. Another consequence of middle management doing this is that if an IT project is going badly, instead of explaining why things are going wrong and asking for help, they instead expect IT employees to make up for this by working overtime to make up for it. I especially saw this with system administrators - they have no say in how IT projects are run yet are simply expected to be on at all hours of the night to make changes so they don't impact systems during business hours. On top of this, there is no recognition when these employees have to do off hours work with no notice, in addition to their normal business hours work. Also, the health insurance could be better, it's a bit expensive for what you get. Even though this cons section was long, it's really a good place to work!

Advice to Management

Try to create a culture where honesty is rewarded instead of punished. Reward your employees if they have to do off hours IT work. Better yet, if 24x7 support is needed, create more shifts. Even better yet, invest effort into solidifying IT processes so that the fear of doing changes during business hours isn't there anymore.

    Pros

    Some AWA (9/80 workweeks) and WFH available Generally pays at or a little above other places in the area Pay for performance, so if you do well, you get rewarded

    Cons

    Lot of change in direct managers Expect to work a decent amount of overtime, especially if you're on their top projects Schedules for development often slip in big projects and force testing to shorten their timeframes and work weekends

    Pros

    They really let you run your own business. The income potential is great and the company is solid. Really good benefits as well.

    Cons

    Depending on your location, it can be difficult to generate enough quality prospects. There is no wiggle room when it comes to goals. You either hit your numbers or you're out.

    Advice to Management

    Cut back on the turnover in sales.
