Employees are GREAT .... Management is awful

Consultant (Current Employee) Weston, MA

ProsWhen working with the employees the are great, they share information they really appreciate the information you impart to them.

ConsManagement has no idea what-so-ever as to what is going on.
They complain about things they are actually the root cause of.
When you have a discussioin about a timeline which has a bearing on the conversation, they have no idea of what has happened when.
They ask you a question, you answer it and then they accuse you of being defensive.

Advice to Senior ManagementStop thinking you are automatically smarter than your employees just because you are paid more than them. That's Sr. Management's fault, not the employee's. Sr. Management needs to start emparting information to the employees (not just management) if you want people to pull in the same direction.

The company does great work for sick people, then need to start acting like a good company, not just say they are.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Pros: Great work life balance Great people especially those that have been in the company for a bit of time. Not so sure… Cons: Has transformed into a highly bureaucratic organization. New management at the top is encouraging this and is rapidly turning the company into a highly silo'ed… Advice to Senior Management: Empower employees to make decisions based on their capabilities and knowledge but not based on their title. Focus more on developing our internal R&D organization… More
