Advice to Management

    Pros

    Classic nine to five environment; job never required anything more than what was expected inside of normal working hours. Lots of PTO time for full time employees. It seems like full timers take one day off every few weeks in addition to vacations.

    Cons

    Heard a lot of grumbling about how internal politics divide the IT department. No feeling of unity nor shared responsibility. Some decisions seemed arbitrary and personal without communicating a real justification, in a dominant/submissive type relationship rather then fostering sense of community and shared responsibility.

    Advice to Management

    The IT group should foster a more team-oriented unified community with a sense of shared responsibility rather then feel segmented into fiefdoms, where internal politics trump getting work done.
