Approves of CEO

I have been working at ProQuest full-time

Pros

Nice work/life balance
Flexibility to work remotely as needed
Friendly people
Complementry coffee bar with Starbucks
Interesting problems to solve, and technolgoies to use

Cons

Heavy reliance on foreign contractors (both on-site and off-shore)
Not enough knowlege-sharing, mentorship, and mobility amongst technology teams.
Seems like junior staff don't get a chance for development or promotion.

Advice to Management

New CIO is doing a lot of things right!
He's promoting agile practices, encouraging collaboration amongst technology and operations staff, and actively listening to input.

    Fun, cool products. Good work/life balance. Lots of fun and varied technology and very smart people.

    Typical raise pool was in line with cost of living adjustment. You had to get promoted to get ahead of the game in terms of pay.
