Pros

Co-workers behaved toward and cared about each other as in a closely knit family.

Cons

Chauvenism is alive and well within the "Good Ole Boys" club at the top. No chance for women to advance except for the token few and the men aren't even afraid to say so to their faces! It's sad that the only veteran management employees left are the ones that were paid the least to begin with and really have no clue about which way to turn when they get to a new crossroad. Ethics Committee and Human Resources are in place to help management only. Do not contact them if you need the information to be kept confidential or are looking for resolution involving conflict with management.

Advice to Management

Pay men and women the exact same salaraies when they're performing the same job or even more, across the board, and you'll find yourself retaining a larger percentage of intelligent people.

    Pros

    Flexible work schedule
    Decent benefits
    Promotes volunteerism

    Cons

    Promotions are made through favoritism, chauvinism, and cronyism.
    The path to success - do not challenge existing ideas, processes, or implementation; be cunning and manipulative; accept only unaccountable responsibilities.
    Upper management views IT/software as a production line, rather than an innovative and creative process.
    Best practices are discouraged if they will extend an estimated work effort.
    Technical decisions are dictated by product management and business stakeholders rather than those with the technical expertise.
    Poor internal practices are reinforced by weak product management and a mandate by upper management that projects are released to both scope and date. Quality and usability are not a priority.

    Advice to Management

    Stop only promoting from within for management positions. Reshuffling the same people throughout the organization does not bring new ideas to the table. External hires infuse a fresh perspective on old problems. For all the talk of desired change, nothing changes, if nothing changes.

  2. Very good place to work.
