    Pros

    There are opportunities throughout the HR organization to make significant leaps forward such as Comp, Consultative HR Practices, Development, Diversity, HR Systems, Leadership Feedback, and Recruiting. If you like a challenge with keep the lights strategy and budget. There is a ton of interesting work to be done.

    Cons

    Leadership lacks subject matter expertise (i.e. there are 3 layers of management in Recruiting with zero recruiting background). Comp structure is designed to continue paying executive huge variable rewards regardless of true performance, while over stating potential to new hires and under paying managers and associates. There is no upward mobility or development, because the company continues to contract and the executives are smoking cigar with the starry eyed hopes for million dollar pay-out through a dreamy IPO and more likely a blood bath acquisition by a diversified significant firm. Culture is oppressive, built on hyper-critical continious coaching with no effort by executives to exemplify the leadership behaviors. Finally, there is no avenue to provide executive feedback, so leadership stays blissfully ignorant of the extremely low levels of engagement that exists at the non-executive level.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Add 360 feedback to your performance management routines for Directors and Sr. Directors. This will shorten the time it takes to identify ineffective leaders, provide the appropriate development and stop the out-flow of top performing managers and associates.
