    Constant change is a way of life here. Never reach an ROI of a project.

    I have been working at Sara Lee full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Never a shortage of work implementing new systems. Although the split-up of the company was probably good for shareholders, the two waves of staff turnovers (2006 & 2012) is extremely disruptive to productivity in a role.

    Cons

    Lack of leadership. Many managers are analytic in nature and really don't know how to lead and inspire staff. Direction tends to come from the top in the form of directives with little selling. Then, when leadership turns over, many are left wondering why they are working on a project. As a result, more projects are drawn up, leaving barely utilized systems abandoned.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Build better plans and include IT early. IT is always 3 years behind the business.
