    Pros

    The paychecks cleared...coworkers were good people. The IT crowd worked well together.Clients apreciated our help and where easy to work for/with.

    Cons

    No autonomy, limited growth potential, you were treated like a tool by upper management. I knew one manager that abused some employees and was never called on carpet.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pros

    Compensation is good and the benefits are great

    Cons

    Complete lack of integrity as you move up the organization, with the exception of one or two Vice Presidents in Corporate Services

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    This is not 1960. You need to be a more open, collaborative company. Don't just hold your teams accountable, empower them as well. Given the current status of the company, it is pointless and woefully inefficient to make every decision by committee. And, having your top leaders responsible for approving every minute detail is a recipe for disaster. There are some extremely intelligent and bright people with great ideas that are being silenced or driven out.

    Pros

    The team I work with are talented and dedicated.

    Cons

    The IT leadership team cares more about promoting the idea of a highly functioning shared services IT group more than they actually care about helping the enterprise.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs to spend less time posturing and convincing the organization that the IT group is highly functioning and more time completing projects that truly helps the organization.

    Former Employee - IT Project Manager in Dallas, TX

    Pros

    The work environment is nice, with knowledgeable employees and good compensation.

    Cons

    Too much in-fighting, deception, micro-managing, disorganization, and flat out lack of communication, especially from leadership to their direct reports. Of course, given the fact that EFH is in bankruptcy, it might be a sign of the times. Regardless, EFH is far from a meritocracy, and treatment of it's contractors as team members is sub-par. If you don't mind a good ol' boy system, I'd recommend the company for the learning curve alone.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Gain some integrity.
