    Pros

    Offers Good benefits and a decent salary,

    Cons

    Will changed job functions on you with no consideration for your desired career path. Many positions have an unhealthy work-life balance. There are not enough IS resources for the workload.

    Advice to Management

    Quality and quantity of work and workforce health suffers as people leave and are not replaced, and we take on more 'partners'. Be more considerate of employees and the department workload. Attempt to understand what is involved from IT and IS perspectives with regard to supporting existing and new facilities.
