    Pros

    This is a fast paced federal government Information Technology organization that is on the leading edge of technology deployment and use.

    Cons

    There seems to be a never ending list of technologies and services that are undergoing major change simultaneously. The pace is fun but its hard to do everything well.

    Advice to Management

    Determine what the true priority for information technology based services are and focus on doing each of them very well rather than attempt to set everything as a top priority.
