    Pros

    Interesting business.
    Privately owned, so at least you know who's really making the decisions, even if they are somewhat schizophrenic

    Cons

    Poor benefits (health insurance, retirement, vacation etc)
    Sub-par pay. Could do much better in Cincinnati, Dayton, or Columbus, and without the drive.
    Antiquated processes and techniques, probably the worst I have ever seen.
    The people making technical decisions are the least qualified to do so.
    Unless you live in Wilmington, long commute.
    Poor tools and hardware. Plan on waiting 15 minutes for your machine to boot and 5-10 every time you hit compile.
    Director Level Leadership is totally clueless, and seems bent on keeping things exactly the way they are
    All of the above means that they have trouble hiring anyone with real talent, so they have quite a pool of very mediocre technologists and a massive pile of technical debt to clean up.

    Advice to Management

    Replace everyone in IMT at the director level and up.
    Move to a better area with a better talent pool (Cincinnati or Columbus)
    Hire a small team of talented, dedicated individuals, and trust them to do what you hired them for.
    Buy developer-grade hardware and tools. Stop handing out the bottom rung business grade machines to software developers who run dozens of huge applications all day.
