Pros

Compensation is decent, lots to learn and experience if you are willing to create such an environment for yourself.

Cons

Leadership has no long term vision and believes in fix it for now approach with its manufacturing assets as well as human assets. That leaves people being considered a replaceable asset. Managment doesn't seem to have clear goals, and there is very little emphasis on creating new or improving work processes. Culture is elitist, meaning its ok and acceptable for a senior person to treat people in a disrespectful manner.

Advice to Management

Upper leadership needs to be shaken up or replaced. The company is not in bankruptsy anymore and should not be run like one. Develop longer term plans with assets as well as people retention.

    Pros

    Amazing bonus structure for industry
    New Job everyday - changing priorities by the day
    New friends every month- revolving door of talent

    Cons

    Leadership acceptance of dishonesty and core values violations by senior leaders
    Cost cutting organization, no investment in innovation
    Poor IT leadership and leadership team who block and blame (throw under the bus attitude)
    Finance leadership does not work well together, flamethrowers and seagull managers

    Advice to Management

    Your culture is driven top down. Nothing changes until change comes from the top.
    Your company is a reflection of Lencioni's "The Five Disfunctions of Team".
    Wipe out your IT leadership team and start anew, you will then witness real change
