    Pros

    Great business and technical problems to solve. Company has an impact on the overall economy. No shortage of project work. Decent retirement benefits unless Ryan budget eliminates the Railroad Retirement Board.

    Cons

    IT management is very ineffective in developing talent - you're on your own. Internal politics promotes a culture of dishonesty, deception and infighting far worse than other shops. Advancement opportunities are more related to who you have lunch with and what you can promise rather than what you can actually deliver.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    By failing to manage low performers out of the organization, top talent will continue to find better opportunities. Provide more transparency to salary administration.
