    Company has I/T issues

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsGreat product, great production, good distribution.

    ConsI/T not innovative, behind the times in technology, not willing to change

    Advice to Senior ManagementFind someone who can lead an I/T department and actually introduce new/improved technology instead of only doing what is begged from the business. Sure its a "Good Ol' boys" club and things have worked for a hundred years but eventually the old, tired establishment will pass into the night and then where will the company be?
