Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Saint Louis, MO
Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Saint Louis, MO
Doesn't Recommend
No opinion of CEO

Pros

Pay and bonuses are good
Company does well as an investment and with Wall Street
Committed to technology
Benefits are similar to other companies

Cons

It's all about who you know and the relationships that you manage
A ton of politics
Lack of accountability, leadership and direction
Borders of unethical

Advice to Management

Review how money/funding is spent. I've worked at several other large companies and there is so much waste here, it's embarrassing.
Ensure accountability through less reorganization and movement. Everyone is a generalist now, no one really knows the details of any part of the business.
Focus on getting new computer and IT systems. I don't work in this area, but the support, the systems and the data capture is all very dated.

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    - Highly talented and self-motivated group of people i have ever worked with (employees and contractors)
    - Good benefits
    - love to come to work every day!

    Cons

    - work life balance will take a hit if you are not keeping it in check
    - slackers are given multiple oppurtunities to prove they are worth hanging on to and this does not help the morale of the other high performers
    - promotions - don't expect it untill you have put in atleast 4-5 years and have a really good direct lead and a good relationship with his lead as well. (hate these Politics)
    - salary raises , too few and too little

    Advice to Management

    stop the continous re-org already!
    when you ask for feedback especialyl for performance reviews- consider peer feedback instead of only the leads feedback

    Recommends
    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    The problems that need to be solved are as fun and challenging as you'll anywhere else. If you are in a research organization, you have extreme flexibility and resources to create solutions

    Cons

    The Research Organizations are not IT Shops, and the difficulty to communicate about technological limitations and paradigms while balancing project work is at times a strain.

    Advice to Management

    Continue trying to understand the challenges of your business from the information technology perspective
