Senior Management is Delusional...

Programmer Analyst (Current Employee) New York, NY

ProsSome of the better employee benefits (i.e. the pension) survived all of the post-2008 cuts. Clear evidence of enthusiasm amongst younger personnel, and more of a sense of 'sticking together.' Encouraging to see some vitality after some difficult years in the company.

Cons* Too many initiatives from Top Management do not match, 'on the ground realities.' Staff/junior managers feel pressured to push ahead with very little planning and structure. Top management is then shocked when they don't receive, 'the sun, the moon and the stars.'

* Too much reliance on overseas resources, who cannot deliver expected quality. The real talent pool is too small, and insufficient/ineffective training is provided to juniors.

* Lack of guidance on troubleshooting issues (i.e. "If X issue is encountered, follow protocol Y") results in inefficient use of time.

Advice to Senior ManagementThe only ones you're fooling are yourselves. You can't expect a company to run (and then thrive) on initiatives that are only 10% planned. It is the definition of Insanity to do the same wrong thing two, three, four, or forty times over. Follow the old adage, "Failure to plan is planning to fail."

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
