      Pros

      Overpay and good benefits/Health Insurance.

      Cons

      1. Outsourced 2. They will pay specific folks very high to maintain diversity. Even thou team does the same work. 3. No growth: After staying several years the career path is stagnant unless you impress your manager with happy hour. In the name of growth they will assign you work of retired employees and blame you end of the year for not picking up new initiatives.. 4. Under performing : Some upper level folks are under performer and whole job is to keep an eye on employee hours and approve time sheets. 5. Several re orgs in past 5 years, so no clear vision. 6. Employees are billed hours and treated like contractors. 7. You may end up working weekend hours so no work life balance. 8. Unethical Environment: You will often hear from your boss that since you don't have kids so you are not supposed to have a break or spend time on weekends in Middleware and devops. 9. Too many lies: in one instance they said no layoff and there was layoff the following month.

      IT Sr Manager

      Pros

      Some really Hardworking individuals who take on a lot of work and deliver. Good Benefits.

      Cons

      Management ethics are highly questionable. The IT employees are not made accountable. Recently about 30 people are given an option of voluntary retirement with severance package. There is a reason these folks where selected/offered because they have been working here for over a decade and are nearing retirement and some cut down of resources. One particular employee was given the similar package and he was hired back within less than a month as a contractor with even higher $$$ billing. This practice is totally unethical and immoral. That person was just brought back because he has a personal relationship with the manager. One of these examples is just enough to talk about the ethics within the org.
