I have been working at AgFirst full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Agfirst offers good flexibility, decent growth opportunities and excellect benefits. IT department is growing quickly relative to the rest of the company. New ideas / strategies will be heard, but like any older business it takes a while to gain acceptance.

Cons

There are a fair amount of employees who have been here for 15+ years who seem to think "because it's always been that way" is an adequate excuse for everything. Size of the company (about 350) can limit opportunities to move into management,

Advice to Management

If AgFirst really wants to begin to compete outside it's narrow niche of agribanking, start by considering completely different mentalities/methodologies. JAD Sessions, Scrum Masters, more flexible working remotely opportunities. Look to commercial competitors for ideas, not at system built in house years ago. Ditch the current business case process and start from scratch with innovation and your current work force in mind.
