"Nice for a steady paycheck, not for a career"

Current Employee - Procurement in Plano, TX
Current Employee - Procurement in Plano, TX
Approves of CEO

Pros

Flexible working schedules, great PTO structure, decent pay, nice friendly working environment. We enjoy some of the perks of working in a building that was built in the tech hay day, however cut backs within the company are making them fewer and far between.

Cons

No real advancement opportunities. Being in the IT industry, they have their wallets under lock and key. Downsizing and controlling costs are the #1 priorities. Expect to keep your job if you're competent and do what is asking, just don't expect to advance as a result of hard work

Advice to Management

Invest in your employees. Its sometimes easy to forget who works their butts off to earn you your profits, and while you're spending money on new company acquisitions, and upper management summit retreats, try not to forget the employees that made it all possible.
