Pros

Up and down about being micromanaged and being left to do the work. It was a high performing group that didn't need a nervous micromanager.... Some people really try hard.

Cons

Left retirement behind because of poor, unqualified over-management. Others left and are considering leaving. If you are looking here for a job, try to go in with as much background as you can get. Beware of reorganization. which means lay-offs. A lot of career employees are burned out and working for retirement, which means a lot of work-place conflict. Not a happy place to be.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The middle Managers are making poor, knee-jerk decisions because of stress from Director-level management. You need some sort of business coach and an intervention.

    Pros

    401k AND pension plan, unbeatable health benefits, and some departments offer flex schedule (9-80,4-10). If under union contract, 2 pay raises and a bonus. Very steady and predictable

    Cons

    Extended periods of intense stress, juggling too many different projects of different technologies under different PMs, required to be overnight subject matter experts with little or no training, and although you are not required to work OT - you might as well sign your own gravestone if you don't. You will be thrown into the deep end and you will not be taught to swim.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide training and resources.
