There are some genuinely great people working here. They try hard to deliver great products for our clients, even when projects are poorly scoped. People who aren't running the show truly care and respect one another. There are some cool projects to work on with lots of variety, but few are lucky to experience the diversity.
Every story is the same here. You come in with the promise of great culture, learning opportunities, and amazing projects. The truth is, you are a warm body filling a seat. That's it. Eventually, you'll get frustrated and leave, unless you get fired first. You'll get paid more if you complain about your pay enough, which is the only way to keep up with the market. The VP's are constantly promoting each other to new, unnecessary positions, while the rest of us have to wait until the next quarter due to budget constraints. If there's no project for you to work on, you'll likely be let go without notice. People get let go without any kind of advance notice all the time. Managers are too inexperienced to have honest conversations with their employees, and since they are also under a lot of pressure, it's easier to fire someone and replace them with someone like YOU who is wondering if you should take the job or not. Do you want to grow and receive constructive feedback? Well, there are a handful of really great, proactive managers that do what they can, provide feedback, and care about their team, but outside of singing your praises, there's not much they can do. The rest of the managers show little to no interest in their relationship with their employees. It's like high school all over again. Cross your fingers and hope you get the good teachers. At the end of the day, you're either going to leave feeling bitter, or get let go feeling angry. Oh, and that bonus you were just promised? You'll be lucky to only ever see a fraction of it. They NEVER get paid out, so you might as well ignore that number.
Advice to Management
Make the necessary bold moves to get the company back on track. You have a lot of useless "leaders" who are barely competent at their jobs. We need hard working visionaries who aren't afraid to get their hands dirty. Solve your top heavy problem! People resent this structure!
