Former Employee - IT Department in Warrendale, PA
Former Employee - IT Department in Warrendale, PA
Doesn't Recommend
Disapproves of CEO

Pros

Company had a good reputation

Cons

IT Department was run like an SS prison camp. Upper managers were very aloof. People were fired on the spot. Others were trying to get out before they got fired. Very high pressure.

Advice to Management

It pays to respect IT staff or they will just leave.

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Warrendale, PA
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Warrendale, PA
    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Small company
    recruit good talent from other similiar companies
    reputable company
    many different departments to "try" out
    many years of tenure across the existing staff

    Cons

    Benefits/ time off are not competitive- No short term disability
    Executive staff takes themselves way too seriously (reserved parking spot, water cooler only in executive wing) no cups for water or coffee for the rest of the staff
    Penny wise pound foolish
    front line employees not recognized

    Advice to Management

    Attracting good talent is more than "stealing" managers from other companies- look inside to recruit and promote from within- remember your people are your best resource and it is important to find ways to retain talent. Vacation time is a huge stinger
