Company started strong but with current Senior Management is deteriorating quickly.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Simi Valley, CA

ProsNo pros - I would talk anyone out of applying at the company.

ConsCompany has grown too big too fast; Upper Management is so concerned about pleasing their shareholders after turning into a public company they don't take the time to keep up with the welfare of their own employees and how well Dept Managers relate to them. Employees are afraid of reprisal - they don't have a way of voicing their dissatisfaction of Managers.

Advice to Senior ManagementReplace the UAS Purchasing Manager with someone who can relate to employees without manipulation and deception. Replace the UAS .Human Resources Manager with someone who cares about helping people.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
