    Pros

    Flexible schedules, great medical benefits, and company perks.

    Cons

    Not many advancement opportunities unless you "know" someone. Hiring managers seem to value "friends" and "friends of friends" more than actual knowledge, skills, and experience.

    Pros

    Rewarding work. The company focusses on curing or treating the worst medical scourges known to man.

    Cons

    Advice to:
    Folks with visible disabilities - to maximize your chances of getting hired, do not self identify before interviewing. It's unusual to see anyone working here with a visible disability.
    GBLT Folks: Stay in the closet if you are interviewing for a role at Director or above. If interviewing below Director level, being out will be ok, however, I've never seen an out IT employee get promoted. If you'd like to promote, best to stay in the closet from the beginning.

    Advice to Management

    Reconsider our recent rebranding of the IT department to 'BTS'.
    Our internal clients don't know what it means, and it's confusing to folks in our external vendor and peer networking partners too.

    Pros

    Benefits, pay, facilities, co-workers, industry

    Cons

    Lack of leadership/professionalism in parts of the organization. Culture survey's negatively impact those providing honest feedback. Lots of wasted money - in unnecessary meetings/travel/etc.

    Advice to Management

    Don't rely on culture survey data. Improve recruiting process - both internal and external. Train managers. Identify ways to get honest feedback from employees. Tighten budgets.
