Current Employee - Senior Applications Developer  in  Branchville, NJ
Current Employee - Senior Applications Developer in Branchville, NJ

Pros

Working with good people.
Benefits are great compared to other similar companies

Cons

Too much work for too few people
Business is driven too much by IT not the business (i.e. IT V.P.'s routinely tell business units what to do)
No growth potential.
Very top heavy on security which makes it almost impossible to do anything.
Senior Management doesn't listen, instead they cut you off and say "I Get It".

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Listen to your employees, we do know what we are doing.
Stop letting IT drive, instead tell IT what you must have and not accept a solution that doesn't meet your needs.

  2.  

    Overall work given was manageable and was not too out of scope for any intern. Tasks were helpful in scope of learning.
