A great place to learn the wrong way of doing things
IT Staff (Current Employee) – Tampa, FL – April 20, 2017
About what you'd expect for PTO and other benefits, otherwise I've never seen so much dysfunction in my life. Overtime is not explicitly required as a day-to-day thing but is still expected, it is required for code releases. The work/life balance is horrible. C'mon, this is the 21st century now, DevOps? They won't realize it with the suite of IBM products they are enamored of. Managers who play favorites, senior employees who are allowed to silo information that is needed by other team members.. that works great where their own job security is concerned, too bad so sad for everyone else. That's changing though, the Indian company that purchased them in 2016 is outsourcing the dev team and probably everything else back to India. There have been so many rounds of layoffs... so many. Speaking of managers, the worker:manager ratio is way off: there are a lot of people with mid- and especially upper-level manager titles sitting outside of the c-suite offices. Speaking of silos, departments that do not communicate and that frequently work at odds, that pass the buck when problems arise. As they do. It's their stuff, they should take some pride in it when someone brings a problem to their attention. I get that everything revolves around Open Enrollment, but was it really necessary to make code releases so difficult and painful? Alas, it's only a matter of time until I get the axe so I'm actively looking.
I have nothing good to say about this company
