Not what it used to be....

ProsThe building is nice, and aside from some of the leadership, the staff is nice.

ConsHR is too involved. Some of the leadership is lacking vision. There have been several layoffs, so folks are on edge about job security. The place is way more political than it used to be, and as a result, the sense of community that was once there is gone.

Advice to Senior ManagementPlease allow the staff to feel like they can take honestly without fear of retribution. Re-examine some of the leadership decisions that have been made.

Great for the most part, but very bad over the past 10 months

ProsBenefits and the opportunity to learn.

ConsSenior Directors and VPs don't have a clue about how to effectively run teams or their areas of responsibility. HR takes the side of poor performers that complain--and they are protected. And there are so many mysterious departures with corporate messages that try to thank them for having worked there. We can easily read between the lines here especially when people talk behind the scenes.

Advice to Senior ManagementI think that Steve Joyce is doing a great job considering what he has to work with. Unfortunately, beyond his most senior team he does not see the poor leaders at the Senior Director and VP levels that don't allow their employees to grow or bring their ideas to the table. And some in HR only care about their titles as well and not about the overall well-being of the employees. Steve...walk amongst the employees that do the work for you...those managers and staff on the front lines (Directors and below) and talk to them. Listen to them. And see hear (and see firsthand) how they really feel. Don't count on the engagement survey for that because not all can participate and have a fair voice and vote to share.
