    Pros

    Very good pay and benefits

    Cons

    IT departments outsourced, starting with the server/storage/infrastructure teams in 2016.

    Advice to Management

    The outsourcing completely ruined the entire culture across IT. Much of it does not work as well as it used to, communication is much poorer, more red tape to cut through to get things done, and morale is down.
