    Pros

    Relaxed enough work environment, respectable mission

    Cons

    Ancient technology, low morale, annoying bureaucracy, very low pay for software engineers.

    Advice to Management

    Get with the times. Realize that the company wouldn't be anything without the IT department and reward people for doing a good job. RECENT GRADS BE WARNED. I know it can be scary to look for a job after graduation but if you're a VCU grad with a CS degree, you can do much better than this place. The technology is ancient, the pay is horrible, and the culture is straight out of the '60s. You'll essentially not be able to list this job on your resume unless you want to be working on old MS stacks for the rest of your career. Also, the work is pretty mind numbing if you ask me.

    Pros

    Opportunity to work with many highly intelligent and dedicated professionals in service of a lifesaving mission. Great little cafe in the lobby!

    Cons

    Current CEO has created an environment of fear, mistrust and paranoia, which even the senior managers in the "c suite" seem powerless to counter. I've sadly watched a number of highly capable and dedicated staff members be suddenly fired without any indication of what was coming - no previous word from their managers that their performance was lacking in any way. This has resulted in an atmosphere of stress and paranoia among remaining employees- and a bit of a revolving door as newer employees don't feel any sort of loyalty to an organization that treats its employees that way.

    Advice to Management

    employing the golden rule would cost nothing yet would reap untold rewards in enhanced morale, organizational commitment and productivity. Take a good long look in the mirror: would you want to work for you?

    Pros

    UNOS is not just a place you go to work, it is a community of people who value your contributions and who will challenge you to provide your best efforts to the overall mission of saving lives. As a small company, UNOS is constantly challenged with making the most out of its limited resources and it is very evident that UNOS makes it work because they value the ideas and contributions of their employees.

    Cons

    There have been times where the stress from work can wear one down. Working on projects that require you to almost constantly change direction because of missed requirements or where you have to revisit and reanalyze a situation during a critical junction point is not just hard work and straining to morale, it does cause one to ask the question about how some business decisions are being made by management. It can seem at times that the business is being driven more by personalities than by data driven analysis.

    Advice to Management

    Managers in IT are also business analysts. Infrastructure IT does not have a business analyst to help facilitate projects and this has in the past caused issues when teams work on infrastructure projects. When working with vendors, there have been too many people offering input and this affects vendor performance and overall satisfaction.
