    Negative Work environment

    Communications (Current Employee)
    Pittsburgh, PA

    ProsThey do great things for the Pittsburgh region. You can be exposed to a lot of good connections and educational opportunities through access you get by working there.

    ConsThe work enviornment is very negative - most people are unhappy. There is not a sense of unity among staff, lots of personal agendas and bias' based on what department you are in. High-level management does not prioritize/recongize the contributions of their (lower to mid-level) people or fairly reward them for hard work. Promotions and title changes are poorly implemented - sometimes promised and then not provided. HR isn't really a trustworthy resource.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTake deliberate, intentional steps to improve the office environment and the general mentality. Do a more consistent job of recognizing and praising people for work well done. Remember that the low to mid-level people are the ones in the trenches making the wheels turn for senior managemnet and appreciate them. Do not penalize assertive people/women.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    A Shadow of Its Former Self

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    Pittsburgh, PA

    ProsOpportunity for those in senior management to work closely with senior corporate/foundation/university leadership in the Pittsburgh region. Opportunity to participate in large economic development deals impacting the Pittsburgh region.

    ConsFunding has been reduced significantly (per most recent IRS 990). Organization was the voice of the corporate community in its heyday (1950s - 80s) but is increasingly marginalized in public discourse and seen as just serving the narrow interests of its membership. Most promotions over the past 5 - 6 years seem to be based on personal favoritism and not demonstrated achievement. Opportunities for advancement have been very limited in recent years -- staff reduced 50% since 2004.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPick two or at most three critical issues for the future well-being of the Pittsburgh region (e.g., municipal consolidation) and work them to death; let everything else fall to the side. Take a good hard look at Executive Team left from previous leadership (Nov. 2003 - March 2009) -- do you really have the horses to execute on a difficult, multi year campaign to tackle an issue like municipal consolidation or transportation funding??? Focus more resources on regional economic development -- success there is what will keep funders writing checks.
