Best IT shop I've ever worked at
Sr. Business Analyst (Current Employee) – Charlotte, NC – February 25, 2016
I work in the Charlotte IT office, and I love it. The management is focused on removing obstacles and helping the individual be more productive. Yes, there's more to be done than there's time for, but my director will not over commit the team for what can be accomplished. My only negative comment is that they're too slow to approve additions to staff when needed.
The new CIO just returned to this USA assignment from an international assignment with Skanska. He knows the company well and already has the influence to deal with our senior business partners. I expect that he will position IT better as a strategic partner for the company.
The benefits are great, and they spend money on employee appreciation events and social gatherings.
I've worked at many IT shops all over Charlotte, in the retail, banking and utilities industries, and I am happier here than I've been anywhere else. I have the freedom to do my job in the best way I know how, and my contributions are appreciated.
It's a small IT shop in a large company with the benefits of both. When I see coworkers leave, I have to assume they just don't know how good they've got it here.
Leadership's values & culture, work/life balance, feeling appreciated, benefits
Too slow adding headcount when needed
