I worked at Love's Travel Stops & Country Stores full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Great Pay, Insurance, and Advancement opportunities!

Cons

Difficulty in finding great help. Some people just want a paycheck, not a job. The biggest thing i would say is that we never closed! Being a truckstop I understand...but being in management I was there EVERY holiday!

    I have been working at Love's Travel Stops & Country Stores full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Excellent skilled people in Appdev and QA on the corporate team
    Excellent Benefits

    Cons

    VPs need to be in tune with SDLC, SRLC, Change Control, PCI, ITIL, Agile etc
    IT needs skilled Directors to unify managers
    IT store and corporate teams need to follow the same processes
    Business Areas are in the dark due to bad PM and BA work

    Advice to Management

    Get hands on, unify managers, fire the unskilled managers, force PMs to PM and Devs to Dev and Qa to Qa, get back in tune with industry best practice and learn to speak and understand on the level of those you employ. Get rid of those that spend to create duplicated functionalities. Scale down on Vendor solutions. Focus on internal skilled developers.

    I have been working at Love's Travel Stops & Country Stores full-time

    Pros

    Fast growing, profitable company. Good people and work atmosphere.

    Cons

    Rapid growth has led to some frustrating changes in IT processes and project management. It takes far too long for a simple change request from the business to be fulfilled because of adherence to recently established dogmas within the culture.

    Advice to Management

    Find a way to empower the IT department and software development team to get things done quickly rather than coming up with more red tape that ultimately slow things down. You're not producing software for sale to third-parties in which rigid quality controls make more sense.
