Dog eat dog culture

Technology (Current Employee)
Franklin, TN

ProsThey offer interesting benefits but...

ConsBenefits are difficult to use (such as vacation). There's no time to rest. Rush rush rush. My leadership wouldn't allow me to enjoy my multiple vacation attempts because of emergencies that really weren't critical, but political. Weekend --GONE. Family life -- GONE. The politics are incredibly vicious. The culture is consistently dog-eat-dog from top to bottom, no team work..

It's my opinion this ultimately affects health care delivery. I'm only still at this job until I find another place to land.

Advice to Senior ManagementChange the culture starting at the B level and work it down to the managers to be team oriented. The caustic leadership needs to go if you want to retain new talent.
