Pros

Amiable and intelligent co-workers. Open environment and nice coffee shop. That is about it.

Cons

Projects are driven from two different sides of the company. Either a mandate by a large Business Arm with bloated budgets and fast spending with lack of control of where the money is going. Or small business initiative sent in motion with a pittance of a budget and the desire to burn the money in the last month or 2 of the fiscal year.

Lack of keeping talent. Individuals who contribute greatly (they make the lines connect) get frustrated and leave for lack of acknowledgment and financial compensation.

Most development is done by outside 3rd party companies leaving a knowledge gap when turned over to run side of EIT. Thus frustrates business and customers on fast turn around on issue resolution.

Motto of buy vs. build with IT solutions. This is great from an academic standpoint but streamlining complex business processes and integration cannot be done with Off the Shelf solutions.

Business teams are too busy doing their jobs to analyze what it is they do and determine what can be done to make it better.

Promotions don't come easily. Who you know and not what you know is king.

Advice to Management

If require process that is verbose - follow it on

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    The health benefits were great. The facility and equipment was well maintained by the guy who was working there in 2007 / 2008, but he left suddenly. Since then, it wasn't as good.

    Cons

    Terrible local middle management. Several had very poor attitudes toward subordinates and peers. Self-serving and manipulative behaviors ruled the day and go unchecked by the guy in charge.

    Advice to Management

    My advice to management is that you should learn to do yourself as you say you'd want others to behave. "Walk the Talk!"

    Pros

    The Paid Time Off is impressive (19 days to start). I enjoy Java City at the main campus. There are a lot of great people you can work with.

    Cons

    Effective management is hard to locate. Promotion is more based on who you know than what you can accomplish. Coaching is more about warm fuzzies than identifying areas that you really can work on. While there are policies everywhere, very few instructions exist for new employees other than what they develop for themselves.

    Advice to Management

    I would advise management to learn to give honest feedback whether in person or in reviews. I would urge management to make more of a priority on developing their people.
