    Pros

    Great benefits, in house training and compensation.

    Cons

    The continuous re-organizations always keep you guessing if you will have a job. Company is outsourcing everything in the IT arena.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Outsourcing IT functions hurts the business. Is anybody concerned and or listening?
