Nauseating Work Environment

IT Engineering (Former Employee)
Wilson, NC

ProsThe customers holding up the bank are over 65 and have strong traditions. The branches are in the southeast, and they will remain in the southeast.

ConsThe customers holding up the bank will be dead most likely in about 20 years.
In IT Engineering, everybody was left to themselves which led things to go from bad to worse. Managers were let loose in supporting disciples they clearly didn't understand such as the content of the work at hand, teamwork and more importantly good leadership. The senior managers were driving change in too many directions. The person I reported to administratively was an associate manager who acted like he was the manager of the place who tried to intimidate you, he harissed people, and he enjoyed dropping project bombs on you with unthinkable deliverables, no intros and no project representation. The probability of achieving project goals there became an inverse ratio to its desirability. Getting goals accomplished was not practical because very few could work through the processes successfully, and you could ask but could not get direction from management on how to work through them. To get anything done there, you first had to prove that you didn't really need to get it done and then at about the time you make the ends meet, somebody goes and moves the ends! There were plenty of smiles usually when things went wrong and that was only because the smiling people had somebody in mind to blame. Overall my experience left me with a solid impression that you really can blame the blamers and management for everything.
