    Pros

    Large organization with room for advancement, they get you what you need to be comfortable at your desk

    Cons

    Corporate atmosphere, you're just a number amongst the 21,000 employees and don't feel appreciated, poor departmental management and lack of direction, slow PTO accrual, always changing policies

    Multi talented in several areas of IT field.

    None UNIX user & trouble shooting experience.

    Advice to Management

    Cross experience on difference platforms insure better turnaround time less calling for help from other Tech's whom maybe on difference problems.

  9. Management refuses to deal with problems. Instead chooses to ignore them until they are forced to deal with them.

    Pros

    The residents and high workplace autonomy.

    Cons

    Company doesn't value employees and treats them like they are disposable.

    Advice to Management

    Your turnover wouldn't be so high if you had some incentives or just some flexibility and fairness with your employees.

    Pros

    Allowed a flexible work arrangement. Have been able to move up within the company.

    Cons

    Salary is typical for a not for profit, would definitely have a higher salary else where, but they have great insurance to offset the difference.
