    Company is sinking fast, but not as fast as employee morale

    I have been working at Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI) full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Flexible hours. Quick reimbursement on expense reports.

    Cons

    Management does not provide opportunity for career growth and development. There is very little opportunity for current employees to move into more senior positions, as the company almost always prefers to hire externally. The only way to break through glass ceiling is to leave the company. HR is the biggest gossip ring in the company, and very little concern is given to employee privacy. HR also fails to act on legitimate employee concerns. Project managers have little skill in being people managers. Project management training consists of navigating through SAP system, not dealing with subordinates.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't forget about your current employees. Show us that you care about growing our careers, don't just say that you do in quarterly emails. Help us help you grow the company. Help us become an innovative company again, don't just say that we are. Admit to your mistakes and focus energy on making things right, not pointing fingers and playing the blame game.
