    Pros

    Beautiful campus, Convenient Location, On site company chef.

    Cons

    Management is truly lacking in direction, The culture here is very Siloed and the IT department is extremely disorganized and incompetent. Managers are unprofessional and there is so much nepotism going on. Everyone is so tense, they smoke every five minutes, its horrible. I got the experience i needed and moved on to a much better company where my work is valued and everyone works towards a common goal.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on Training your managers to be better and more effective at their jobs.

    Pros

    Gorgeous modern campus, good work/life balance. Team-mates are knowledgeable and helpful

    Cons

    IT management is made up of ex-operations people that do not have the skills to run an IT department. Imagine a large hospital with only one doctor, things just don't get done. The technical team have too many projects running concurrently, management do not understand (or seem to care about) giving employees the tools and direction to get things done. Layer into this scenario a lack of prioritization, requirements, project leadership and an SDLC and it's chaos.

    Further, when qualifies and experience team-members offer suggestions for improvement they are either ignored or misunderstood.

    You have been warned

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire some proper IT Management, and listen to them.
