Sr. Management talks a good game on changing culture but is ineffective in implementing or influencing the employees.

    Pros

    I enjoy the work/life balance and the chance to work from home. I like the predictability and stability of the organization as a whole.

    Cons

    An IT Support Technician supports 100+ applications across the Enterprise including US Cellular however concerning our salary review we're labeled as a typical ticket jockey from Joe Schmo Co. opening and routing tickets. I think that Mr. Gantner should come sit with one of our analysts for a few days and get his doors blown off.

    Advice to Management

    Compare these support roles to other support roles in this organization. When a business analyst is supporting one specific function of SAP with minor project work, they are making significantly more money. There are several current business analysts that are former Technicians, ask them what they think of the wage paid to Technicians based off the span of knowledge needed to support the Enterprise.
