What don't you like about working at Cricket Communications?
"We are constantly being re-orged. The turnover in upper management is very high. There is too much finger pointing. Our timelines are too tight. There is a lack of talent in the PMO organization."
What suggestions do you have for management?
"I would concentrate on better execution. The IT PMO is a mess. We are constantly pushing out bad code and spending all of our time fixing defects instead of allowing the developers to provide input on the timelines. The managers and developers are given a calendar that is put together by the C level. C level does not understand how much time we need for each phase of the projects. They are willing to launch major projects in the 4th quarter that put sales at risk. When an issue arises, the fingers get pointed at managers and IT. There is too much finger pointing. The turnover rate at the C level is alarming. They have replaced everybody but the CEO. It's time to replace the CEO."
