    Management. They all act elite. No direction. Even if you rank 4 out of 4 you still seem to walk out of a review feeling like you suck and could have done better.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    too many chiefs not enough indians! Ruled by fear every single day! I was made to cry a million times by at least 6 different managers in my 10+ years there.

    Pros

    If you want to stay at one company for 20 years, be a "yes" man/woman and work with a bunch of people that have no clue about the real world, then this is the place for you. Just check your boxes every day and you can retire from the company. On the plus side, there are a lot of very nice people there, but those people do not pay your salary.

    Cons

    Promotions are hard to come by unless you know the right old guy in charge of a division or in the "special club". If you think you can join this company with fresh ideas, think twice about it, there is only one way to do things and it's their way! As for compensation, it is low, so do not expect to make any real money.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To the senior executives, hold your executives responsible and do not let them blame the people that do the work!
