    Pros

    It was a good company to start your career.

    Cons

    IT staffing is very small so they are more reactive than proactive.

    If you got on the wrong side of someone watch out no matter how well you do you job they will stab you in the back.

    Advice to Management

    Make IT more proactive with newer technologies. Foster a culture of innovation instead of everyone being worried about their jobs. This may help with some of the backstabbing that happens.
