Very poorly managed company with lots of hidden agenda at the top and very poor leadership (none).

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

ProsIndependent of what you do and how bad you contribute, as long as you know the right person at the top you are fine. You dance to the music from the top you are safe.

ConsThere is NO leadership
There is NO vision
The so called leadership does not have a clue for the contributions that makes the goals met.
Very sad place

Advice to Senior ManagementWalk the talk
You need to first identify who are the true leaders. You have not demonstrated to the working employees that you know this.
Do not rely on those incompetant (in your terms) leadership.
At the end of the day you need to be competent enough to pick the right leaders not those who tell you what you want to hear to safeguard their jobs and their agendas.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
