    Pros

    good brand recognition. Small number of good people working there.

    Cons

    Management in the IT finance organization is disorganized, cannot define a simple process, do not treat employees well, some members lack the respect of other organizations so it makes it very difficult to get your job done. There is high turnover in the team with no focus on why people are leaving. Tasks are approached in the most inefficient manner that I've seen in my career. You are only successful on this team if you agree with everything management says. There is no respect or appreciation for having your own thoughts or ideas. When you deliver something that was asked of you, you may be frequently told "that's not what I asked for", when it is exactly what was asked of you.

    There is no work life balance, the expectation is that you are online 24x7. It is seen as a weakness if you have a family and want to spend time with them.

    A small number of IT Business partners are aggressive and not pleasant to work with.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Overhaul the IT Finance management. You are losing way too many good people and there is no focus on what the core issues are. Scratch the surface of what's really going on here and you'll be shocked.
