Disapproves of CEO

Pros

Hey, it's a port in a storm. Huge company with plenty of work to do, so if you can figure out the bureaucracy it is possible to plug your skills into a given project, get some skills and some half decent pay.

Cons

A series of complicated mergers over the last ten years have resulted in an extremely complex environment especially in the Information Technology space where I work. There may be over 30 different support lines for individual colleagues to call for IT support, hundreds of legacy environments, dozens of domains, insourcers, outsourcers, vendors and a complete lack of coherence. Other internal operations such as Financial and HR seem similarly convoluted. It's a MADHOUSE, a MADDDDHOUUUUSE.

Advice to Management

Stop. What you are doing is not working. Go play golf and quit making deals. *sigh*

    Pros

    Get your career started, meet other people and make connections, and get out as fast as you can without getting hit with the door!

    Cons

    The hours, the incredible workload, the utter lack of support, the thankless accomplishments, the sneaky HR policies, the moral-crushing white boys' club.

    Advice to Management

    Your people are worth more than your money, because you'll eventually lose all the good people, and the money will follow them.
