No opinion of CEO

Pros

Access to good technology; IT middle management aware of issues and trying to do things better.

Cons

Frequent long hours, especially weeks before a system release, vicious politics; lack of architectural knowledge, antiquated systems and processes. Long hours are a feature as the CTO believes in working crazy hours during pushes followed by weeks or months of inactivity - worst of both worlds. Some workplace rules, especially as they pertain to attendance are insane; in all fairness, IT is relaxing some of these rules, but only because of the long hours.

Advice to Management

Doubt they would listen, but even if they did, the company may be beyond help.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    A sense of camaraderie given that most employees are the same age and stage in life. Some intelligent and knowledgable people, unfortunately, the good ones tend to leave. Best to use this firm as a stepping stone to a better job and a better firm.

    Cons

    Grossly below average pay. When I worked three, the salaries were paid once a month with minimal annual salary increases. Employees were clocked via building passes going AND leaving so there will be a line at 5pm of staff clocking out. In addition, there were absurd policies such as requirement to wear name tags, no eating at your desks, personal picture frames must be company approved (at least, the firm provided them free for you), etc.

    Advice to Management

    Find a way to oust Jean Buttner, she is driving the company down the tubes. Unfortunately, she surrounds herself with a bunch of spineless "yes" men, whose compensation from what I understand are capped.
