No opinion of CEO

Pros

Excellent benefits package, talented developers, professional environment, attempting to go agile on many of the technology projects (aka more natural work approach)

Cons

Stressful experience working with incompetent testing manager who did not have any respect whatsoever from the development manager or project champion....none of the above had a grasp on the true scope of a data migration project, and therefore were not able to effectively communicate to their direct reports manageable expectations.

Advice to Management

Time management of direct reports got out of hand....tracking people's time down to the 2 hr level of granularity backfired on project progress.

    "Melting Down"

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Large company with diverse opportunities

    Cons

    Management is turning Eagan from the HQ of legal to a "site." Purchase of Reuters and subsequent failure of Eikon (rumored to be up to $1B in spend) has driven the org down dramatically and Sr. Mgmt's response is to cut support and services, diminishing client satisfaction, which has large negative effects on retention and pricing power. Consequently, morale is at rock bottom.

    Advice to Management

    It's not intelligent information, it's high-quality information and software supported by people that customers will pay a premium for.
