Pros

Good benefits
Work Life benefits
Some smart innovative people

Cons

Unrealistic expectations, Infrastructure expects you to Work 24/7
Lots of Nepotism - family, past colleagues and friends get it all, esp. in Informatics
Little career growth, most senior exec roles go to outside because there is no leadership development
CIO and his executive team lack integrity

Advice to Management

The problem is the CIO and his SVP, VPs .
Never meet with IT staff and I am in IT supervisory role.
A lot of IT jobs going offshore and the senior IT leaders CIO, VPs orchestrate this for personal purposes

    Pros

    There is a lot of flexibility, but that is more a function of the position and your manager than the organization. The products are good. The company treats top performers exceptionally well.

    Cons

    Upward mobility is highly limited for sales representatives. Promotions are routinely handed out to friends of management (the typical corporate boys club). If you want to move outside the sales organization and into a corporate role, the only opportunities are in NYC, Long Island, and St. Louis.
