    Pros

    The teams I work with are great! Smart, hard working. I have a great boss!

    Cons

    Turnover of executive management causes low morale. There are also cuts that concern staff and cause them to look elsewhere.

    Advice to Management

    Be more open and honest as to why so many long-term leaders are leaving. It will likely help morale and save others from leaving.

    Pros

    Strong player in the IT industry.
    Knowledgeable in the IT field and how to grow business.

    Cons

    Lack of empathy for employees or their families
    Very little work/life balance
    Unfair treatment of employees in the same team/position/title/level, i.e letting some work remote regardless of time with company

    Advice to Management

    Hire more people managers! Your employees are incredibly unhappy and morale is very low due to upper management not being able to relate to the employees doing the ground work.
    Treat employees with fairness, do not show special treatment to one and not the other

    Pros

    Pay is above scale with good benefits and PTO.

    Cons

    Management at all levels is cliquish and vitriolic, constantly fighting a game of one upmanship with other regional and department management. Morale and enthusiasm are in rapid decline. People spent half their time doing their job and half looking to work someplace else.

    Advice to Management

    Stop shifting who is in the top roles, coordinate, listen and form a solid strategy.
