    "Shameful IT culture"

    No Opinion of CEO

    I have been working at HOOPP full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Exposure to business, fast paced, benefits, yoga, meditation, vacations

    Cons

    Been here for a short time and it's pretty evident that I made a mistake. ISG run by a bunch of notorious and nasty goons. Spend more time figuring out internal management problems and hiding them from the business than delivering real business value. Feedback/management run through "anonymous" (yeah right) surveys. Employees that don't join the cult are fired at the drop of a hat. Let the witch hunt begin

    I have been working at HOOPP full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Salary, Benefits, Pension. Location. Jim as CEO (but he's retiring soon).

    Cons

    Some senior leaders lack integrity and are phony. Talk out of both sides of their mouth. They know how to manage up, tell a story that makes them look good and take all the credit. That eventually catches up with a company and cracks begin to show.

    Pros

    Started out great, many technologies, excited for the opportunities and saw great potential Good benefits and compensation

    Cons

    Soon it went south really fast There are no checks and balances or separation of power Disagreement or not going along with what the leadership’s inner life circle of people decide will not be tolerated and will be retaliated - you will be dealt with and put on the "list", branded not a team player, un-coachable, gossiper, weakest link and discredited, disparaged, set up to fail etc...

    I worked at HOOPP full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Salary is more or less at market level; people generally act nice

    Cons

    full of politics. People who have skills won't be recognized. Promotion are purely based on the personal relationships with the management. Back-stabbing is must skill to have. IT is doing a big wash-up and hired so many useless people as human monitoring machines.

    Pros

    Great pension plan, benefits and culture. Yoga classes, meditation and an onsite massage therapist. You do not see things like this in other work environments.

    Cons

    There is still work to be done in embracing the work from home. Other companies embrace this and offer a few days per week remote. Studies show employees are more engaged and productive when there are flexible options.
