Current Employee - Programmer Analyst  in  San Francisco, CA
Current Employee - Programmer Analyst in San Francisco, CA

Pros

Pretty laid back, people are helpful and genuinely interested in helping if someone has a question. A lot of them have incredible knowledge since they've been around from the days of the main frame and when systems were being built

Cons

Too much paper work, too many processes. It's also far too top heavy and too many people supervising and not enough people doing work. Also, there are a budget issue and some people in supervisory positions mainly because they have been there for a long time and not because of any actual skill set.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Less paper work and more financial incentives are needed

    Current Employee - IT Systems Administrator in San Ramon, CA

    Pros

    Nice people if you are an employee. Great if you are a minority. Promote from within.

    Cons

    Heavy use of but yet distrust of contractors built into culture. Disorganized. In their quest to hire minorities, they've left quality behind to some degree. Some bad management not managing to top notch corperate standards.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on integrity and adhereance to corperate standards and norms.
