Expectations

I like problem-solving. I excel in the environments where companies are either in the startup phase or established but have neglected IT Operations and now need to focus on transitional strategies and budgets to take advantage of new technologies and processes. I am looking for innovative companies that are taking old ideas and transforming them into new technology solutions.
I am looking for companies that truly value the employee at all levels. I am a proponent of employee empowerment, trust, and believing that if you let people stretch themselves without fear of failure they truly embrace innovation and feel like they have a voice towards company success.
I believe business drives technology, not the other way around. It is a technology leaders responsibility to understand individual department objectives and needs as well as the overall business strategy and then define the technology strategy around those goals and objectives.
Finally, I am looking for companies that understand that culture is not a thing you do but rather a way you think. Perks and benefits dont mean much if employees believe they are put in place in an effort to placate them. If leadership isnt sincere in their definition of culture employees wont embrace it.
