    Pros

    Interesting technology to work with

    IS management are unprofessional in how people are criticized in-front of others and changes performance reviews based on personal feelings and how well you get along with the people he brought with him. Jumps back and forward on strategy decisions without consulting staff.

    Lower management are doing a great job of putting out fires created by middle management, keep up the good work.
