Victim of the 20+ year employment purge

Analyst (Former Employee)
Cleveland, OH

ProsExposure to work with some really good knowledgeable people. Stable job environment if you are not ambitious.

ConsNepotism. Managers that are silo driven and not corporate driven. Employees with 20 years of company tenure are often purged due to pay scale and benefits. Some positions do not offer transferrable skill sets.

Advice to Senior ManagementNeed to show loyalty to long-term proven employees.

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