    Pros

    In IT people were very experienced with at minimum 10 years at Intel so all knew what they were talking about and mutually respected each other and were enthusiastic about the project and working there. Security and access to needed data or information was the biggest pain as justification was always needed with sign offs by supervisors. I was allowed to build a dimensional model without any interference. My knowledge and experience was accepted.

    Cons

    Security and access to needed data or information was the biggest pain as justification was always needed with sign offs by supervisors.
    Data modeling architecture is fiercely controlled with reviews. This is good but a painful step as the architects only know 3rd Normal form when the dimensional model is denormalized.

    Advice to Management

    It management was changed and the subsequent reorganization released all our contractors who were working on our project. This delayed our project substantially. Keep some status quo when changing until you understand the effect change will have on the on-going projects.


  2. "My experience has been good but there is a lot of bureaucracy"

    Be open just because you took some years to reach where you are doesn't mean everyone else has to.
