Q: What is it like working as an Information Technology (IT) Director?

February 2016
"Learn to listen your managed team."
Information Technology (IT) Director:
Don't take anything for granted.
March 2016
"Underpromise; Over-Deliver."
Information Technology (IT) Director:
Focus early on setting expectations among team members, especially as IT becomes even more central to all aspects of the work environment. Find one (1) or two (2) projects that are easily accomplished, highly visible, and relatively important -- low-hanging fruit -- and achieve them in the first 90-120 days. Finally, don't be afraid to ask for help -- in fact, budget for professional services and consulting.
April 2016
"Slow to change, fast to adapt."
Information Technology (IT) Director:
One of the biggest things I learned was the need to adapt to new issues quickly, and resolves issues yesterday, but not to force blanket changes on my staff quickly. Don't let people try to push you around. Be understanding and considerate, but stand firm on your principles.
April 2016
"Its not as hard as it seems initially."
Information Technology (IT) Director:
Talk with your superiors often; get clear on your responsibilities; and work with your boss to design the first 6 months of goals/priorities; work hard daily, but always make time to cultivate relationships.
June 2016
"Expanded Experience."
Information Technology (IT) Director:
Obtain experience in a variety of companies across multiple industries.
June 2016
"The stresses of working in the IT industry."
Information Technology (IT) Director:
Learn to be very patient and never take anything personal.
June 2016
"Wasted my life being loyal to my employer."
Information Technology (IT) Director:
I have been with the company 27 years. I get paid weekly. No retirement. No health ins. Working for a pay check only. A total waste and a huge life mistake. Is it to late.
