Information Technology (IT) Manager in Boise:
"Great if you get the right one."
Pros: I love having flexibility to do my own thing and make decisions. I get challenged everyday and researching new technologies and implementing them is amazing and fun.
Cons: You really need to make sure that when you start as an IT manager with a company that has no prior IT personnel, that you lay down the ground rules out of the gate, that you have specific networking tasks that you need to follow. If you go doing extra stuff that has nothing to do with your degree, then you will not have enough time to do what you are supposed to do. Networking and security is you first priority, don't lose sight of that. You are more than just "the IT guy" that someone can call upon when they have a stupid question about Google earth or excel.
