This company was a good place to work for, however, management styles varied. The strategic positions changed about 6 times in 7 years. The IT department specifically had 4 Directors in 7 years and each one had their vision of how the IT department should function. Upper management, kept passing the IT department between VP's and consistency and goals were constantly redirected. Stability was lacking due to ever shifting conditions and support at Executive company management or executive department management. Lack of pay for lower level support resulted in lack of experienced technicians and ability to perform tasks to satisfaction. Department staff, was slightly higher then department management in terms of head count. Managers were expected to wear many hats that ate up far more time then they had day, resulting in large deficits in the ability to manage effectively. The benefits also dwindle from year to year going from a great self insured company to marginal. Job and career progression for IT staff was stagnant.
Good bonus, ok medical benefits, OK vacation accrual
Bad turnover, lack of qualified personnel
