Pros

Global experience with great co-workers, most managers were good - able to translate value and alignment of work to overall business goals, exciting and diverse projects, experienced job rotation within department - great cross training/development in profession, Tech savvy, flexible work location (office and virtual w/manager approval)

Cons

Continuous change efforts could be exhausting, Presents with larger organization political challenges, staffing changes reduced opportunity for strategic improvements (more keep the lights on work, fewer project people)

Advice to Management

Listen, trust and empower your subordinates (VPs thru individual contributors) to innovate and deliver on projects. More often than not, the timeline to get final approval would extend project timelines (sometimes doubling project duration) with impact of eliminating cost-savings (too little too late). Speed for delivery is strong on client engagements, less in the corporate office - there is room for improvement.

    Pros

    Network access on first day. Nice employees and contractors.

    Cons

    No attention paid to projects when they start to go bad. Managers hired who did not know what they were doing. Some people hired who later could not do what they said they could do. No structure to projects. Fear of displeasing Government managers leads to a lack of speaking truth to power.

    Advice to Management

    Expect the sincere production of project artifacts on Day 1 to keep failure from being a surprise. Stand up to the Government managers to get them to make sensible decisions.
