No opinion of CEO

Pros

- Pay is good
- Casual dress (jeans) year round / summer casual from Memorial to Labor Day (shorts)
- Chance to work on large projects

Cons

- Almost all development is now outsourced, so your job is mainly managing offshore resources
- All management cares about is metrics - as long as you deliver on-time, they're happy... doesn't matter if the product doesn't meet business needs

Advice to Management

- Worry about things besides JUST the bottom line
- Sure, outsourcing saves money upfront, but most of what is delivered is poor quality. Hiring more FTE's would result in better applications.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Can learn from the GE style of management. Simple, open, integrated.

    Cons

    The ruthlessness of management. Terminations of longstanding and competent employees are a daily fact of life. Others who are part of the "inner circle" advance in spite of shortcomings that would get most others a pink slip.

    Advice to Management

    Show a little humanity.
