    I worked at Long & Foster

    Pros

    The benefits package is actually pretty good. Starting out you get 17 days of combined sick and vacation time per year. Onsite gym. Fringe benefits if you need to buy or sell a house. Mostly good people to work with in the IT dept.

    Cons

    Salary in the IT dept is abysmal compared to similar positions elsewhere, on the order of 30% below market or more. The dept has gone through round after round of lay offs only to have senior managers remain with essentially no staff to manage. Why do we need two VPs, a director, three senior managers and a coupe of managers for less than 50 people?

    No standards are enforced, only constant is that the CIO will not tell an agent that they can't have something. Outsourced help desk in Mexico and outsourced field engineers for break fix issues Development of internal apps is actually done in India, and departmental training is a joke.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Senior management, especially in the IT dept is in need of a wake up call. They need to offer truly competitive salaries if they want to modernize systems and retain any of their competent people instead of laying off competent staff while keeping incompetent managers and staffers around just because they have however many years with the dept. They also need to actively assist with professional development to retain people, rather than hoping the economy will keep people in place.
