Great place to work - poorly treated as an intern with no room for advancement

I have been working at Belcaro Group

Pros

Fun work environment, casual atmosphere, great communication between CEO and CFO and rest of company, major growth in the last two years

Cons

No room for upward movement when set up against "cliques" in company, no performance evaluations from direct management, prefer to hire from outside the company than to bring people in from within.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I think that they should definitely take a closer look at the talent that they have in the building before offering jobs to outsiders. Really it is about appreciation - you don't get any of it. Entry-level positions and interns feel like they are doing busy work that rarely gets seen and never appreciated.

    Good experience, short term outlook, too many "fires"

    Pros

    Good location. Snacks certainly a plus, but that doesn't pay the rent. Some managers really focus on your career growth and finding opportunities for you to advance. They are the ones that will be your champion to upper management. You're lucky if you get to work for one of them. Most of the people are an absolute joy to work with. Good work/life balance.

    Cons

    Career opportunities can be good, but it depends on the department and who you work for. The owners have good intentions, but get lost in the weeds. The President spends too much time in the day to day when he needs to be at 30,000 feet taking a look at the strategic direction of the company. A lack of vision means a lack of focus. How can we be successful without knowing where we are going? Plugging money into a dying revenue model doesn't seem to be working. Step back (all the way back) and let the brilliant people you hired do their job. The company will continue to lose (money, people, focus) if a change isn't made soon.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let people do the job you hired them to do. Think about promotions and new positions in great detail before making them happen. When you survey employees, make sure to act on it afterwards, or at least follow up. Nothing drains morale like asking people what they want and then radio silence after. Stick to your decisions. Why do a bunch of layoffs, but still give increases to everyone and then do a bunch of recruiting? Money must not be an issue.
