    Pros

    Health Benefits, Multicultural, Travel, Co-workers

    Cons

    Lack of direction, Constant re-org, Not enough investment on new products, does not respect their workforce, Constant blame game for not having enough people, lack of full development of products, too much emphasis on marketing and not quality, good people are leaving or forced to leave, does not reflect the true of the company financial situation

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop the lay off, save money on useless marketing, develop you employees and provide more resources to create and test products, be realistic about deadlines, follow agile methodologies, watch your senior directors not really aligned with the objectives of the company

    Pros

    SITA offers an interesting, multi-cultural, and fairly compensated (from a salary perspective) place to work. Because they sell only to a segment of the market, their products can be focused and competitors easily known. The company's roots were a cooperative type of organizational structure to the airlines in the late 1940's where they developed and implemented their international network infrastructure. Today, they recognize that they are a viable business and need to operate like one.

    Cons

    Because of their origin, SITA struggles to be able to turn the company into an agile, lean run company. They talk about where they want to go and hire consultants to help them get their, but they just can't seem to turn the corner because they are not willing to make drastic changes, starting with many of the people who have been there for a long time. Although, their heart is in the right place, there is still some work to do at the senior level.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take time to implement the current change completely before changing again so the middle and lower layers of the organization feel comfortable in knowing not only the "what" but also the "how" of their roles. It has been a huge impact to them and their families.
