    Pros

    Good place if you are planning to retire in less than five years.
    You can be invisible and avoid work if you keep your mouth shut during meetings.
    War rooms are management staff having free lunch and surfing the internet.
    Able to negotiate salary and 3-4 weeks PTO if you are coming from consulting.

    Cons

    Company income based on only a few products.
    Directors or above are robbing the company.
    Traditional sweat shop concept.
    Management is a joke.
    Preferred hiring outside contractors and no internal promotions unless you have connections.
    No merit increase for a few years
    Only lower level employees doing all the work.
    Dead end career path.
    Try to run IT as a business but ending up as a joke because of management failure.
    Other departments refused to work with IT because IT is always over promised and under delivered. Plus most staff is clueless of what they are doing because of high turnover rate.
    Benefits are going downhill.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work (#sarcastic). Enjoy while you can.
