The IT division suffers from fiefdoms and managers that are perfect examples of the 'peter principle' at work. The company has an outdated technology stack from 2006 and is slow to adapt to change. Changes are planned over a 2-3 year period, but the budget is re-evaluated every quarter, changing priorities and canceling projects. Enthusiasm for new changes is sparse with most people doing the minimum possible expecting their project to be canceled. Management promotes friends to positions that are not advertised as open. Thinking outside the box is heretical and will be a career killer. Mediocrity and conformity are the words of the day. An example of how employees are treated: PMs were told that the market is saturated and given pay grade decreases by their manager.
Benefits are good. Workpace is slow.
The CIO is out of touch, morale is poor. Large dependence on outside contractors.
