    Pros

    Good health benefits , 401K and vacation .

    Cons

    Terrible place to work if you’re in IT. Top heavy organization. More overpaid directors and managers than people actually doing the work. Most of the upper level IT management has been there forever and have no clue how outside world has changed. No career growth. Too much work. It seems like they make up for overpaying the upper management by hiring new employees below market rate and make them do 2 people’s job. Oh and promotion - "whatcha talking about Willis".

    Formula to survive here - do what the management does. Negotiate a really good salary, take regular vacations (without worrying project deadlines) , talk talk and talk and do just enough not to get fired. There is no incentive to work hard here. The harder you work, the more work you will get without any appreciation or compensation for extra hours worked.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of all IT management, Sr. manager and above. Hire management who can make this place a fun place to work and who understand the concept of PROMOTION.
