    Pros

    Pay...
    Also, the people that work their are talented, hard working, and smart (for the most part).

    Cons

    Resources are Lean...there's not fat left to cut and most people are doing the work of several people...creates a all work and no play environment. Very rarely is there time to step away from your desk to even have lunch.

    I worked at Qwest

    Pros

    The quality technical talent that was in the old !NTERPrise group.

    Finally figured out that the Internet was important for the future.

    Cons

    Old management culture is very resistant to change.

    Outsourcing strategy by IT was just STUPID!

    Take over by telophony side of IT impedes speed to market.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get managers who are flexible and care about their employees. Listen to their ideas - stop the Directors who protect their own asses.
