    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Many good people to work with.
    Great name recognition on resumes
    Some managers (now retired) were very supportive and nurtured a good environment for growth and for reaching potential.

    Cons

    Many people are promoted who don't qualify and don't have the skills to manage.
    Office politics is rampant, and stifling.
    People in management positions are out of touch with reality.
    Consultants from the "big guys" are treated okay, but contract IT employees without the backing of a major consulting firm are screwed.
    Some managers micromanage, rather than trusting their employees not to be morons.

    Advice to Management

    Only promote people to management who truly deserve it. Trust your employees to know their jobs. Hire good people directly.

    Pros

    Excellent ethics and integrity go through the company, underlined by core values especially safety. Good work-life balance though getting tougher as we are leaner, common across corporations these days.

    Cons

    Can be slow/difficult to drive change. The strength is working with teams and getting input on change, but some things have to be driven to be competitive. Need to ensure we keep valuing the technologies and experts who helped make the company what it is.

    Advice to Management

    Need to remember to keep developing people even as competition has intensified. Fewer development opportunities than in the past and these are needed for the long term.
