    Adding back my review since it was deleted

    Pros

    - Some of the people I worked with were highly competent but they are few and far between - Poor quality management will serve as a reference point for when you leave for that better job

    Cons

    - The quality of the management here in IT is really poor. It's also a small boys club that you do not want to join - Several individuals have come across into IT from the business and they are universally poor to deal with. - Ineffective CIO who absolutely no one thinks highly of - Having to work with people who show little drive, ambition or are extremely demotivated - Demotivated workforce who have been here for far too long - Increased emphasis on outsourcing

    Pros

    Some of the people are not so bitter, but the vast majority are The managers seem to be able to survive with no great turnover There is work but no real bench strength

    Cons

    A really poor work environment where survival is the key There is really no incentive to do well or to get ahead since it's not recognized The management team do not listen nor do they appreciate the hard work of key individuals People are leaving in droves and there is an increasingly negative work atmosphere with people desperate to get out
