I have been working at The Bradford Group full-time

Pros

The environment is very unique. There are plants, trees, ponds and waterfalls throughout the building.
The IT Team works together well and you get to experience a lot of different aspects of IT.
New Management is great. Always willing to listen and doesn't micro manage.

Cons

Previous management has left a mark on the environment, but new management is working hard to change that.

Advice to Management

Keep doing what you're doing.

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Great place to begin your career and gather basic knowledge to make the next step in furthering your career opportunities.

    Cons

    They don't really compensate well or have the desire to retain you long term which speaks to why they are a good entry level company.

    Advice to Management

    Implement a better structure to further your career and provide career development opportunities. I'd also say you need to find a way to better compensate your employees.

    I worked at The Bradford Group full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Nice facility with the atrium and water, etc. The location is close to many places to eat, and there is plenty of free parking.

    Cons

    Highly political environment. If you work in IT, you are in a shared services organization and the various business units compete for your time and budget. Most of an IT manager's job there is to say "No" and listen to people argue for why you should do work for them. It is no fun. High level exec's will yell at you if they feel slighted.

    Advice to Management

    Things have changed since I've been there, thankfully. The CIO when I was there was difficult to work for. The outsourcing, flip-flopping, horrible vendor management, and general treatment of people were unbearable.
