    Most managers are nice people and seem to genuinely care about their employees.

    Pros

    Great benefits, nice bonus, vacation, perks (Holiday Party, picnic, etc).
    Challenging work if you like deadlines.

    Cons

    IT is very, very silo-ed. Management solutions are lip service.
    Too many Peter-principle managers. Very little accountability.
    Project management driven only by dates will lead to crap code; everyone knows that.
    Management listens but they don't act.

    Advice to Management

    Get connected with the worker bees!
    Actually listen to the technical people.
    Get serious about being a leading technology shop instead of just pretending.
