Hostile work environment

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

ProsIncredible footwear with the Sorel brand and fabulous cutting edge technology based apparel.

ConsNo accountability within departments. Employees are downright hostile towards one another. Lots of verbal direction - no trail when wrong.

Advice to Senior ManagementDemand accountability from yourselves all the way down the chain. Create, implement and demand processes from each department and determine that those processes work across all departments. Learn to respect one another and quit throwing people under the bus - take responsibility for your bad decisions and don't blame them on those that can't defend or protect themselves. Create an environment that allows people to thrive and grow not wither on the vine.
