Falling behind from a technology standpoint

Managing Director, Marketing (Current Employee) San Francisco, CA

ProsIf your manager allows it, you can work remotely on occasion. Solid values and ethics. Good ability to move around from department to department, provided there are jobs you are interested in open.

ConsWorkforce is stretched too thin. Frequent reorganizations make it hard to know who has ownership/responsibility when issues arise. Technology infrastructure is seriously outdated and results in frequent frustration/loss of productivity for employees. Some groups rarely promote employees and are reluctant to make salary adjustments for long-time employees, resulting in many high performers leaving the firm to obtain a better title/salary.

Advice to Senior ManagementTake a look at the employee rewards and recognition programs and find a way to provide meaningful, public recognition for more employees. And work on implementing a social media monitoring program so employees are not blocked from using all sites with a social aspect.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
