    Pros

    •Decent Pay and Benefits.
    •Good relationships with customers and some camaraderie with coworkers
    •Reasonable work flow (not too many tickets and projects managed on a case by case basis)
    •Reasonable policies set in place to manage user behavior/workflow in enterprise environment

    Cons

    •Middle Management contentious with staff
    •immediate supervisor does not escalate problems, or "have your back" in customer satisfaction situations
    •Management unaware/unappreciative of individual worker skill sets: starting in 2009, many skilled IT workers were laid off, while many lackluster, or problem employees were retained; this one stymied me.

    Advice to Management

    Management should be aware of skills sets of their existing staff: especially when making changes, or lay offs. I don't think management knows who on their staff can do what. I would encourage some sort of reporting (peer endorsements or Vendor certification program) that will be held by management to rectify this problem, so qualified people remain on the job.
