    BP&S/IT due for another disaster with DC as CIO

    Nov 12, 2014 - BP&S Manager in Vancouver, WA
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Good and hard working employees for the most part, standard industry benefits and great business model for growth

    Cons

    Many changes within BP&S team in the past few months without leadership or strategic approach; Hiring and keeping expensive contractors instead of keeping knowledgable employees. The CIO acts as a bully and there is no oversight on his costly decisions and the chaos he has created. He was given the ultimate authority by the past leadership team and since they have left Finning, the new leadership team has not assessed CIO’s negative impact and outcomes so far. Moral is low and BP&S employees seem lost while the new CIO brings in more of his people on high paid roles and contracts.
