    Pros

    Young culture and extracurricular activities are geared toward that.

    Atmosphere is light and loose.

    The potential here is staggering ... if they can reach it remains to be seen. There are many things that we do well. But many, many others that we simply get by on brute force.

    Cons

    Quantity over quality is the name of the game. Focus is on turning out code, which is often sub-par.

    It is not a collaborative environment. Not just between individual development teams, but between the business and the analysts, the analysts and the developers, and between development teams. We simply do not work well together to compliment each other.

    Pay and benefits in IT is mediocre, especially given the hours and effort expended, turnover is high.

    No investment in training for IT staff. Not on the business. Not ongoing technical training.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There are a lot of young managers, who were promoted from within the company, which is generally good. But there is little balance between young guns that only know the "Echo Way" and seasoned professionals that can help the company improve.

    There are some smart people in IT. Put the brightest from IT and the business in a room and engage them. Collaborate with them. Then challenge them. They will challenge you back and help you to examine your preconceptions. Put all the pieces to the puzzle on the table so we can find the missing pieces together. The result will be truly dynamic partnership.
