    I worked at Sears full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Company works with bleeding edge technology. Process oriented, but not so locked down that you can't find a better way. Senior management is accessible. Pay is at the top end of industry averages.

    Cons

    Due to tight budgets many legacy systems are long past their MTTF. Much of the most talented people are leaving or being let go as many functions are off shored. Also too focused on hitting the milestones over getting it right.

    Advice to Management

    Need more focus on quality. 75% is not "good enough" to push a public facing application or applications used by public facing associates to production. Commitments to the customer need to take president over commitments to the CIO. Moving support and development off shore does not yield savings in the long term since it takes more FTEs to produce at the same level due to training and skills imbalance and local work rules.
