    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Public Utilities Board full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Good benefits, salary, stability. Good location (Newton). Opportunities to attend training courses, conferences, overseas trips.

    Cons

    Management wants "smart" projects with flashy technology to wayang in front of bigwigs. Leaders see no value in long-term digital capability, preferring to outsource everything to vendors.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on long-term capability development, not just churning out short-term wayang projects. Clearer, and more specialized job scopes. Look at the attrition rate ... should be a warning sign right?
