Pros

The pay is pretty competetive and they have decent benefits.

Cons

Your chances for advancement or promotion or even a raise were very hard to come by, even when you went above and beyond your duties. You should always keep your resume up to date because you never know if you/your department will be in the next round of lay offs. This happens very often.

Advice to Management

They need to come out of the "good old boys' way of thinking and be cognizant of the young talent withing their organization.

    Pros

    Lots of opportunities in the short term, for resume building.

    Cons

    Longer term, a bad place to remain. Essentially, if you are skilled when you are hired here, there is a good chance you won't leave with more than what you put in. One the other hand, there is a large opportunity to take on more and more, so you will get good resume building.

    Advice to Management

    Cut the dead weight, and imagine the profits you could have.

    - Relatively flexible working schedule
    - Decent benefits, outside of health care
    - Competitive pay
    - Commitment to employee training/education

    Cons

    - Very political - you won't advance if you aren't in good with someone
    - Lot of cheap, counter-productive offshore IT resources which shifts the workload onto the already taxed stateside associates
    - Far too many middle managers
    - Increasingly oppressive policies

    Advice to Management

    Quit sending jobs overseas...remember, you sell policies in the U.S., not India! Treat your employees like resources, not expenses on your balance sheet.
