Good young talent, bad long lifers
Windows OS Specialist (Former Employee) – Fredericksburg, VA – September 2, 2015
The organization unfortunately hasn't stood well with the test of time. Many lifers are still there and are unable to compete with the pace and knowledge of many of the younger and highly more educated IT staffers hired, even most of the management that remained after job cuts.
Typical days, it was difficult to locate individuals in departments as they would work from home and not actually be working, management knew little knowledge of their department and current technologies, and people rather took long lunches and didnt care of their daily tasks until their head was on the chopping block.
The younger IT personnel like myself were able and forced to manage ourselves, act as project leads, order equipment, delve into other departments areas, etc.
I learned a lot about myself, my willingness to advance and become a team leader, and stand apart from the rest.
I would not recommend this job for anyone who wishes to work in a professional environment with individuals who take responsibility for their actions.
