Aside from the political lightning rod that the company is, it started off really well, with a collaborative IT department where everyone was friendly and helpful. But as the economic landscape has changed, some people started shifting focus to themselves, and trying to protect what they had. Groups became silo'ed and pressure was put on the remaining people to accomplish tasks and projects at expedited timelines, regardless of conflicting priorities, workloads or manpower. The company itself offers great benefits, both in terms of healthcare as well as work/life balance. And it pays well too. But for the IT department, the focus is to cut, cut, and cut, outsourcing as much as possible. Being on the inside, the outsourced vendor is no where near as good as the FTEs, and it shows - all other end users I speak with about it tell me as much. If you are not looking to join the IT department, don't expect even moderate support quality; expect lower thresholds.
