Advice to Management

The IS department needs a management makeover. Don't through a project manager to manage all the problems, hire real developers and analysts to fix and support the applications.

    Pros

    Flexible schedules. They try to offer a work / life balance. Generally nice people to work with.

    Cons

    Too many politics.
    Non-technical management.
    40% below market pay in most positions within IS.
    Lack of following industry best practices, especially in security.
    Bad architecture design.

    Advice to Management

    An overhaul is needed. Higher technical managers to manage technical people. Remove the political machine that drives you here. Align better director structures to remove the silo style of management. Pay staff market value. Pay exceptionally qualified staff above market to retain them.Fix the non-standard architecture that the company runs on. Do not promote just because someone has tenure, promote because of skills and the ability to lead. Stop looking down on those who have passion in their work.
