Big Company

IT Architect (Current Employee)
Largo, FL

ProsFlexible work schedules. Telecommuting, 9/80 alternate schedule,
Lots of opportunity.
Internal functional groups and external program facing groups tend to be very separate but there are opportunities in both.

ConsIn a downturn for the last few years, cutting employees regularly.
Very hard to get promotions...but easy to get increases in responsibility.
Functional groups are very distributed, so your manager is likely to be in a different state, making you balance between supporting local priorities or your management priorities.
IT is highly outsourced.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
