People are Great, Management Not So Much

Sales Manager (Current Employee)

ProsVery much a "we are family" kind of feel between colleagues. Most people across departments are willing to help and contribute to the success of others. Benefits are good and autonomy is good & bad...good employees are free to do a great job & experiment with ideas but bad employees never seem to be dealt with...overall though a good working atmosphere.

ConsUpper Management = nothing but the "posse." Not creative, nor very bright it seems. This trickles down several levels. Promotion of friends is rampant, no matter the qualifications, and job performance isn't really judged it seems.

Advice to Senior ManagementTurn the spotlight inward...step up and deal with the areas that are hurting the growth of the company. You will not create the digital company that you profess to want with the current set of people running the company. Custom needs to be blown up too...ineffective managers and editors. Maddening.
