    Pros

    Great company with a great mission and benefits.

    Cons

    Management in IT is poor. Top management are all friends and will cover for each other, instead of holding each other accountable. Very bad practice and destroys the culture. Decisions are made based on personal preference, not based on performance.

    Advice to Management

    Run the department as a business, not as a group of friends and eliminate people you don't like, even if they are top performers.
