Muddled Strategy, poor communication, but great people

Analyst (Former Employee)
San Francisco, CA

ProsYour co-workers are awesome, willing to help and you can learn alot and move throughout the company. Great bonuses.

ConsSeems as though focus is constantly being shifted and there's poor communication between upper management and employees. If we're not aware of what the overall goals are how can we work to that end?

Advice to Senior ManagementEngage your employees more, increase communication and make the promotion process more transparent. Currently the best way to move up is to just switch departments, you're losing that knowledge/experience.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

There is little oversight on how managers implement stuff or the incentive… Advice to Senior Management: other teams that can't utilize stuff at all because of their manager.
