    Pros

    Start with 4 weeks of PTO off.

    Cons

    The people that work there are not very smart. Many of the people you work with are hired off the street without any education. They give you 4 weeks of PTO but they block half the year so that you can't use it during the holidays. The pay is what you would make waiting tables.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire more competent people.

    Pros

    There are few opportunities for software development in this area; this is hte only real gig for this type of work.

    Cons

    A lot of management-by-default instead of decisiveness. Management has a tendency to involve itself too deeply in daily tasking (tactical) rather than training, developing and nurturing the resource talent to allow them to take on the truly big picture (strategic) vision for moving ahead and innovating.
    Concentration is on creating then putting out fires rather than smooth and organized processes that will prevent fires. It creates a rather herky-jerky (often counterproductive) work environment that is way overstressed when compared to productivity levels.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    "Forward Progress" is not always good; be willing to retreat from bad decisions.
    When measuring and acknowledging success give credit to those who accomplished it rather than only the manager; when measuring and remonstrating for failure, include management. You also need to hold manager accountable and require commitments; them committing other people does not count, they must commit themselves and the resources (personnel, physical, and physical) they are tasked with.
    Provide adequate (even minimal) training; saying that a resource will “pick it up as they go” is insufficient.
    You must measure performance against the job description into which people are hired.
    Provide succession planning and career path guidance.
    Temp to hire positions should be honored; hire your temps on when headcount opens instead of keeping a temp on and then hire someone else to fill the headcount. If they are good enough to keep, they are good enough to hire.
