Bureaucracy can be a bit stifling but not a bad place to work
Wintel Server Operations (Former Employee) – Southlake, TX – May 11, 2018
My biggest issue with the company was, at least from my perspective that a lot of the technology "stacks" were not working well together. I remember having difficulties getting their storage teams to help us out on several occasions. Not to say that their storage team was bad, it seemed they knew what they were doing, but they weren't always really helpful. I had similar issues with other technology groups, we in the Windows team would have issues we'd need to troubleshoot, try and bring in another group to assist and a common reaction was "Not our problem" We were always able to overcome these roadblocks, but it was aggravating at times to deal with.
Very bureaucratically bound, a LOT of policies and procedures for everything, very little room for applying individual solutions as needed. I can see the need for that at such a large company though.
Other than that, the company was pretty good to work for. I enjoyed my team and the work was certainly challenging. It was easy to achieve a good work / life balance, I didn't often need to work very much OT. Management was very distant and more or less let us do our jobs without interference.
