    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    The people are generally very competent.
    Very young workforce - lots of nice eye candy walking around! (more than I can say for most IT departments).
    Lots of flexibility in my schedule, and management is open to tele-commuting. Some even work remotely full time.
    Lots of fairly leading-edge technology means I get a chance to do a wide variety of interesting work.
    Fast paced, and challenging.

    Cons

    Chaotic. The business barely manages to stay ahead of issues and basically just keeps their heads above water most of them. Very reactionary. Fortunately, IT is not as bad as the business side with regards to daily activity.
    Lack of upper leadership - a sufficient amount of re-org and change means that projects are constantly getting shifted and re-prioritized. There is kind of a lack of ground-level work being done for people int he trenches, which is a shame, because they need a lot of help in that area.
    Total lack of cohesive infrastructure. With IT folks in Pittsburgh and Phoenix, ther are communications issues (not to mention the time zone difference) that make coordinating things kind of difficult.

    The whole organization could best be described as a CMM level 1 place - very reactionary.

    Advice to Management

    Stop spending millions of dollars on projects that never seem to go anywhere. Solve the day to day issues to lighten the loads of worker bees.
