Disapproves of CEO

Pros

Pay and benefits are somewhat better than industrial average. That's about it!

Cons

Very immature group of upper level management personnel. Departmental vps and directors are non-expertise promotors since they were promoted in the same way. Trying figure out why/how? Politics is all that matters.

Advice to Management

Let the subject matter professionals do the work, establish systematic and fair career growth and reward system, stop messing up with the management system of the commpanies acquired, and stop mixing small and not so marketable technologies to fool around the investors.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Pay is good. Job is simple and work life balance is great. One of the most flexible and friendly to family jobs out there.

    Cons

    Job lacks technical challenge. Management is incompetent from the highest levels to the lowest. Don't expect to advance in IT because there is no where to go. Everybody works in a silo. Teamwork is discouraged at best.

    Advice to Management

    Hire managers that have experience working not only as managers of IT, but on the front lines. People that have no technical skill have no place managing highly skilled professionals.
