Pros

HR-related aspects top notch - competitive pay, good incentive plan, strong benefits. Really do try to promote from within. Ability to work from home. Lots of very smart people who want to do a good job.

Cons

PMO processes that should drive and support progress end up materially impeding progress. IT full of small fiefdoms that don't talk, take a long time to deliver and are costly. No travel budget so all work is 100% remote. Constant reorgs mean management is watching their back rather than focusing on execution, managers who don't rock the boat are the ones that survive.

Advice to Management

Pull PMO out of IT organization and put in business, make them accountable to business leadership rather than their own. Implement SLAs for IT and make their performance visible. Increase level of accountability across entire organization; start rewarding those who ask the hard questions.

    Pros

    Free coffee , powdered soup and instant oat meal as well as terrible parking.

    Cons

    Political cliques , favoritism abounds, door guard has been consistantly late 5 to 20 minutes for the last five years while other associates if even 1 minute late get docked , open door only opens one way to let to you out ! Area traffic is terrible no matter what time of day worse in bad weather.

    Advice to Management

    Walk in a associates shoes see what goes on through their eyes or from their level.
