It's been an OK experience.

Programmer Analyst (Current Employee) Davenport, IA

ProsPay and benefits are fine. Great job security. Company takes safety seriously. Flexible schedule in IT - can put in 8 hours anytime between 7 a.m. to 6 p.m.

ConsMid-level management of the business departments (not IT) are very indecisive and do a lot of CYA. This causes decisions to be made slowly. IT middle management are generally fine to work with. I generally respect senior management but then also have limited contact with them. A few years ago they replaced vacation, sick time, family leave time with a single category of PTO. Net result is less time off. IT is still short-handed b/c of a hiring freeze after the 2008 economic crash. Training and travel budget was cut big time but is slowly coming back.

Advice to Senior ManagementEncourage your middle management to take risks and take responsibility. Be aggressive on hiring new IT workers - the short staffing is wearing people out.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
