    Great experience on the UK Branch program. Management restructuring not so good.

    Pros

    There are really great people that do the day-to-day work. The company is very selective about hiring the best people they can find.

    Cons

    The defined processes can be overkill and should be streamlined. IT project managers should be able to provide very loose milestone dates until more is known about all the interdependent tasks and about external influences on the projects.

    Advice to Management

    Portfolio managers should not be directly involved in projects. They have program managers between them and the project managers to handle that. I'm not sure why portfolio managers AND program managers are required. Seems a little management heavy.

    Great culture and people. We work hard and play hard.

    Cons

    The Boston office is not too large so there are limited opportunities as you move up in your career.
