Pros

Have had some very nice co-workers over the years. This was once a very stable and happy place to work. Since the initiation of Rewire for Growth, which is just a nice way of saying that there will be terminations, it hasn't been the same.

Cons

Extremely low morale in the IT area. Unstable environment with upper management continually changing directions with outsourcing, off-shoring and reductions in force. Very unhappy environment for employees over the last 5+ years and steadily declining. It may just be the nature of the field now, but what was supposed to promote collaboration and streamline projects has only added extra layers of bureaucracy and created an incredibly toxic work environment. There is very little incentive, other than having a job, to continue employment.

Advice to Management

Employees are the bottom line, not you.

    Pros

    The benefits are the only pro

    Cons

    They are taking this company apart. They take you pay away but want more out of you.

    Advice to Management

    They should go back to the companies that thay came from.
