    Pros

    Overall great people to work with
    Tremendous benefits
    Majority of employees are competent and easy to work with

    Cons

    Poor work life balance
    Too many reorgs in last 6 months
    Limited resources to successfully execute against plan

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Closer evaluation/assessment needed at the mid-level management level. Upper management changes appear optimistic, but far more changes are needed on several levels. There are managers in key mid-level management positions who do not clearly understand the job scope of their direct reports and need stronger a skill set in order to benefit the organization in the short and long term.

    Pros

    The (Belcamp) IT group is a great group of people. I will do what ever I can to convince/help them to leave!!!

    Cons

    They have horrible security practices. Source code is scattered everywhere, they do not care. There are hundreds of thousands of vulnerabilities and management refuses to accept the fact that the company is at grave right of losing all intellectual property, because of this. But, since my boss stated that protecting intellectual property is not a priority, so I guess I'm the crazy one. What?

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Dave - Fire them all, and get some qualified people in their place. AND STOP RUNNING YOUR IT PEOPLE INTO THE GROUND......it is why they are leaving en masse (other than you firing more than 100 of them). And start running that company like SECURITY MATTERS.
