Pros

The IT department has a very broad range of talents and skills. There are more than a handful of very brilliant peers. IT uses agile development practices, so engineers do get to work on a broad range of projects. Management has been trusting and more "hands-off" over the years, which is respected.

Cons

JTV had a bad year last fiscal year, and in turn had to lay off a large portion of their employees, and cut back a lot of fringe benefits. Upper management has not done a very good job at all lately with keeping the IT employees from over-reacting to the recent turn of events.

Advice to Management

Find the time to relate to your employees, or you will continue to lose valuable long term employees.
