Pros

Pay is decent, and some cases the managers are very good.

Cons

The main problem here is that upper managment does not appear to be cohesive with an ability to focus on a long range IT plan and stick with it. Communication and goal setting appear to be a foreign concept here.

Advice to Management

Figure out a high level plan of direction for the IT group and provide definitive leadership and stop making so many changes with staff.

    Pros

    Ability to travel is great. Generally good work environment. Stress free, and they provide the tools to get the job done. You can pretty much expense anything when traveling. Always updating technology

    Cons

    Low pay. If u don't wanna live in Phoenix then the upward mobility is non existent. It appears the good ol boy system is alive and well

    Advice to Management

    Fight for your employees pay. When doing reviews, be able to justify why or why not a person does or doesn't deserve a commensurate raise. Be ready to have facts and empirical data to justify reasoning

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Good pay. Having a job is better than not having a job. Best IT personnel have left so there is real opportunity to have big impact.

    Cons

    All of the good programmers have left. Many left are on H1B and can't leave. Terrible idea to offshore with no apparent plan to succeed. Top management is terrible. No consistent direction. A big company that is run like mom and pop shop. Not a mature development organization. If you are in IT you can probably do a lot better.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your people. Have a goal, a vision, an understanding of priority. Do not put people in a position to fail and then burn them out when they do. You are an American Company receiving 90% of your money from the US government so you need to stop doing offshore. It doesn't work anyway.
