Growing so fast - inept people become leaders by default without leadership skills.

Pros

The compensation was good and it's very process driven. I learned a great deal of process management and how change control was key to ensuring stability.

Cons

The leadership, from middle managers all the way up the chain, play politics. There are too many people required to make a decision which results in a lack of accountability and ownership of your business.

The company is so large in IT that the culture is non-existent. Employees are a commodity.

Advice to Management

Pay more attention to individual managers, as they are the key to the happiness and health of the organization. If they lack leadership skills, they will damage the teams irreparably and can actually cause team members to submit "good enough" work in fear of repercussions for speaking out.

    Pros

    Above average salary, average benefits (surprisingly average for the size of the company) and good opportunity for advancement.

    Cons

    I worked with several managers and all were fanatical that no one in any of the groups I worked in should contact's consult, or provide any information to the managers peers. One manager had a habit of raising his voice with his subordinates - unacceptable, but HR did not follow through with any of the complaints lodged from at least four individuals.

    Advice to Management

    Remove supervisory responsibility from those managers that do not have the tact or disposition to deal with employees in a respectable manner.
