Pros

Pay isn't bad, especially for location and education/certification "required". To be honest, everybody from the director level down has been largely in the same boat as far as job security. The people left are pretty competent, and I can count on most people to do their job efficiently and with a level of personal interest.

Cons

Since late 2002 we've been in a cycle of down-sizing IT staff, and the future never feels certain. Career advancement has been non-existent, and the training budget (specifically for travel) has suffered. We have lost a lot of good people to outsourcing and an unsteady future, and I know we can't provide the service we used to prior to outsourcing.

Advice to Management

Realize that we will find out and notice things going on; transparency will foster a "we" environment, instead of the current "us and them" environment. We don't have to know everything, just don't act like nothing is going on when we all know there is.
