Mid level managers are inept

Income Manager (Former Employee) San Jose, CA

ProsResponsible organization overall. Great resource for cancer patients and strong commitment to mission. There can be opportunities to work with minimal supervision if you earn it.

ConsWow, there are so many mid level managers that are completely unqualified and have no business sense. Extremely high turnover. Terrible "business models." Trainings are a waste of time. Complete lack of concern for entry level staff morale. Sad to say this because I believe in the organization, but from an employment standpoint I think it's a pretty bad place to work.
