Pros

Fun parties, good people, open communication. I'm never afraid to mention something to my peers or manager. They go out of their way to make communication inviting.

Cons

Too big to actually get anything done, unless you ignore everybody and do everything yourself without telling anyone about it. IT bureaucracy is inexcusable and completely ineffective. Management goes on and on about how they're championing training, but when something is suggested, it get lost in miles of red tape and never gets implemented.

Advice to Management

Make training a priority, and seriously mean it. Cut the red tape in IT. The Help Desk is an expensive joke.

    Pros

    Not many....but if you like to drink on the clock they allow it. And they buy kegs and let you drink from 3-to when it's gone. They even offer cab rides.

    Cons

    No formal training. Fly by the seat of your pants. Clients are alwasy angry since nothing can be fixed or it takes too long. They move you from client to client and pretend that your the problem to make it look like its a people problem and not the system. Nothing gets done for months. They advance and promote only people they think are friends. They make fun and openly talk about people.

    Now lay offs....when my department can't even handle the workload. So many clients and they work you up to 50 plus hours a week. They will give you more clients and allow others to have half the load because they favor thier friends. They cherry pick clients...and give the junk to the staff they don't like. You are blamed for things that you have no control over. You can't up through your chain of command.

    More lay offs.....yet I see employees go who have been there for 4 yrs and an employee gets to stay when they have only been there less than 45 days. It takes you years to learn the job functions due to all the aspects of the system and departments. Other employees will lash out to you if you make a mistake and no one will help you to learn.

    Bottom line is.....Upper Management has to leave in order for it to get better. The cliens deserve the best due to thier cost. Show more respect.

    Advice to Management

    They are all sitting around doing nothing and collecting a free paycheck. Stop talking about getting a gym for better health. Look around and stop the drinking on the job. How can you layoff staff with so much work in the tank? How can you layoff when you have so many open tickets that customers are waiting to get fixed?

    Pros

    Strong company. Sound future. Dynamic leadership. Fun.

    Cons

    A little too party hearty, but that's just how they operate with customers and vendors. Not so bad.

    Advice to Management

    Better health benefits. The plans available in 2012 are paltry and 2013 will be worse with the loss of the open access option. Cut the off color jokes in meetings and all hands calls. Political speeches also not appreciated by those with less conservative ideas. Other than that, dynamic and exciting times ahead and I feel like we are well led.
