    Pros

    There are no pros in the IT department right now.

    Cons

    Management is awful, generally have no clue what they are doing other than creating a toxic environment. I was told managers actually watch all employees even those that don't report to them to see when they are arriving and leaving. Change control process is a joke. Too much time spent on monitoring activities that aren't reviewed by auditors. Not enough time spent actually helping the business become more efficient.

    Advice to Management

    Quit because none of you are good at your jobs.
