It was good but sometimes chaotic with mixed messages from top leaders, and a real disconnect between some teams.

Pros

My manager and colleagues were great, so the people.

Cons

The constant mixed messages from top leaders about the direction or reorganization of the company. They wanted maximum work with very little number of employees.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop making changes every month. Formulate a plan and stick with it.

    Pros

    -some flexibility -the ability to work remotely on occasion

    Cons

    -quiet environment, coworkers do their own thing and keep to themselves
    -everyone seems fearful of losing their jobs so it creates stress and low moral
    -Too many processes that need to be followed in order to get things done, especially since it's difficult to change those processes to make them better

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs to make more long term decisions rather than short term budget costs. It seems that the way they deal with budget is with little insight. Personnel cuts are pretty constant. When new budget is approved re-hiring of former employees seems common. I would think that some more foresight from management is necessary to break this cycle.
