Central IT

Company Culture

Praise is rarely given and sucking up to the boss is always rewarded.

Support from management

Management doesn't communicate shared goals. They don't communicate or work with each other effectively.

Teamwork

The teams work really well with themselves. They do not always play nicely with each other.

Freedom to work independently

Too many single points of failure and bottlenecks.

Internal Communication

Just flat out bad. NOTHING is communicated from the director level to employees.

Gender Equality

Females in management roles have been fired and demoted at an alarming rate. About four times as much as males.

Attitude towards older colleagues

They are considered to be first on the reduction of work force list.

Career Development

This is a dead end job.

Overall compensation for your work

Removed all incentives to work here. No more ESOP - no more 401K matching - little if any raises.

Office / Work Environment

The roof doesn't leak and the heat works mostly.

Work-Life Balance

Employees have requested vacation hours for Saturday and Sunday to ensure they won't be interrupted.

Company Image

No one I know speaks well of this company.

Job Security

Didn't feel safe for the last two years. The company is very unstable and has a high debt to cash ratio.

Handicapped Accessibility

The bare minimum.

Workplace Safety

Many pathways between the cubes are under sized.

Challenging Work

The biggest challenge is getting things done in spite of management.

Inclusive / Diverse

Rather intolerant of strong female employees. It is an old boys club.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Sell everything and walk away. You are not capable of running a successful company in this climate.

What I like about the company

Nothing - the anxiety was more than anyone should have to endure.

What I dislike about the company

The absolute incompetence of their IT management. The managers could not even keep a blanked budget.
