Strongly focused management with uneven expertise
Management has highly focused goals for resolving problem issues but does not have a well focused plan to achieve those goals. Department meetings serve to assign problem resolution responsibilities to each engineer. However, management is not versed on the current technology needed to solve the issues in the dated code.
If your department is responsible - more... and has the goal as the highest issue, you will be able to contribute your ideas to the solution. Otherwise, archaic and possibly non-implementable solutions will be forced on the team and failure will result. - less
ProsDesire to be highly competitive, solid interest in finding solutions
ConsDepartment politics, archaic computing hardware, inter-department communications
