    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Great folks to work with. Nice and quiet location away from the hustle and bustle of the mainstream St. Louis work areas. Great pay if your a senior level executive.

    Cons

    IT has great people but no leadership. They have a great leader but they give him no power. Everyone can walk all over literally anyone in IT as they are treated like dirt. They don't spend a dime on IT. Projects are on and off again like changing your shoes. Same applies to IT budget/IT spend. Over a year to make a SharePoint decision. SAP decisions are a joke and not worth mentioning from the standpoint of executive leadership not having a clue and a half. Their SAP support people consist of six or seven people and literally support the world! They get no support, no thanks, are treated worst than, well, need I go further?

    Advice to Management

    The MEMC CEO has got to go. He is completely missing the boat when it comes to IT. He won't be able to compete because he doesn't have a clue about the strategic or tactical nature that IT plays in moving the company forward. Stop cutting costs on IT. The new CFO also has no clue either. They're going to have to spend the money eventually. May as well do it right. The IT group needs to be elevated up in the food chain. Way up! Its a very poorly run company.
