Pros

There's a lack of IT knowledge within the department at the senior most levels. This provides an opportunity to shine by helping with best practices and moving the department forward. The employees doing the work are friendly and competent.

Cons

When providing those best practices, you rarely receive recognition. Nepotism runs rampant, and the CIO favors loyalty over competence every time, to the tune of promoting inexperienced people beyond their means. Cheap hardware with lack of redundancy to save a few bucks means consistent outages. Hacks put in place by Sr. Dir of IT create a snowball effect that makes simple tasks difficult to accomplish. The IT mentality of Sr. Mgt. is give users just barely enough to get their jobs done, and force business decisions on them.

Energy Transfer spends about 20% of what it should be spending on IT as compared to other Fortune 500 companies and it shows.

Advice to Management

Embrace best practices, promote based on merit rather than the buddy system. Reduce ROI caused by manual processes throughout the IT department.

    Pros

    Company is very flexible with schedules and are good when you need to leave for personal matters. Culture is decent although a lot of good ole boy netoworking.

    Cons

    - No praise or recognition for job well done.
    - Pay is on lower 25%.
    - Development management is incompetent. Not stretching the truth.

    Advice to Management

    Definitely more involvment with the little people. Your employees make you look good, so treat them as such. The best employees should always be appreciated and compensated as such. You should keep current on your technologies so that you know what to expect out of your workers and so you can have SOME oversight when some aren't doing so well.
