High C-Suite Ideals, Destructive Management Churn

Pros

Interview, training, rep support and feedback are all exemplary, the work is fun, and changes in policy and client-specific details are always easy to understand. Upper management are visionaries, very inspiring and admirable.

Cons

Senior leadership has very optimistic goals and ideals, common to most startups. The ambitions are lofty and the processes are well thought-out. However, high turnover means that middle-management always ends up with something to prove, which can be a disaster unless the personality is a good fit. Hiring practices in the management stratum seem to fall short of both leadership ideals and CSR needs, as they are based on different criteria than those that would support what the company claims to want.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Zero in on confirming that management is in line with professed culture and values. Those things can fall by the wayside in the nitty-gritty of the everyday, overlooked for basic management and Peter Principle reasons, and soon you've lost all contact with the reason you loved the company in the first place. It's not enough to talk the talk, when the people you hire to steward your workforce don't know how to walk the walk.

    Pros

    Work from home opportunities were the best. The opportunity to make a decent amount of money was always there. Freedoms to make your own schedule

    Cons

    Constant policy changes. Conference calls when you aren't scheduled to work. Working a weekend shift. No benefits. Not holding everyone to the same standard

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to the people who work from home, they are just as important as te people that work in your office.
