US IT Infrastructure Lead Manager II (Current Employee) Tampa, FL

ProsTechnology headquarters located in Tampa, FL
Pay: High pay rate employer in Tampa Bay. Annual bonus is a percentage of salary based on performance evaluation and staff class.
Flexibility: very flexible work schedule; work from home, easy time-off request, etc.
Benefits: 15 vacation days increases to 22 days after 2 years of service. 8 paid holidays and 2 floating holidays. However, the firm gives away a couple more days to have extended holidays. Healthcare plan, dental, and vision from day 1. 401K and a Retirement Plan where staff becomes fully vested after 5 years. No specific number of sick days outlined.
Training: used to offer excellent opportunities. It changed with the downturn in the economy.
This is a high class firm where you attend the best restaurants, stay at the best hotels, receive the best training, and learn to deliver the highest customer service.
You will work at a highly reputable firm. You will build international relationships and develop a global mentality.

ConsThis firm is a Partnership entity rather than a corporation. Partnerships have too many chiefs, and very often takes a lot of energy to accomplish goals. For example, US Partners can't enforce rules globally.
IT leadership has never been able to find a way to earn the trust of their staff. They have never succeed in this space.
Since 2000, the firm has gone through several strategic restructuring and outsourcing. Partners established an aggressive goal to increase profits in a few years, where technology has been an increasing expense and required a new solution. The firm outsources to India as much as they can.
Looking to technology workplace environment over time, the outlook has been getting worse compared to how it was in year 2000.
The annual performance evaluation process does not have a code enforcement team to ensure "existing guidelines" are followed. The evaluation process seems well structure, however, it is well manipulated by leadership.
The performance improvement plan process is not structured at all. It is a gray area leaving room to many questions and a system manipulated by savvy management. If the staff disagrees, the firm does not provide an external mediator nor offers a process to appeal.
Be reminded that HR works for the firm, not its employees. Do not expect a fair game.
Sophisticated workplace bullying occurs in very few departments, but does occur and nobody can protect you from the predators.
After reviewing the above pros & cons, and taking into consideration that no workplace is perfect, this is still a great place to work!

Advice to Senior ManagementSometimes a change needs to take place at the very top, not redesigning the bottom. Sometimes leaders lose their way.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
