Micro-managed & stessed

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Overland Park, KS

ProsStable job, decent pay, somewhat flexible, nice building, good co-workers

ConsMicro-managed, cannot move up without a degree, experience means nothing, too many bosses. Stress!

Advice to Senior ManagementCEO's come in, get rich and leave. Guess it is that way at most companies. Low morale partially due to profit sharing being unattainable for workers; but Senior Management still gets all their perks. CEO told us we're disengaged if we had been there 3+ years and should do company a favor & quit. Started Gallup. HR does nothing to help morale. Before going public we had a lot fewer layers of management and job was less stressful. Very litte job satisfaction, lower morale now. Computer systems flawed. Need to invest in systems & people, everyone stressed. Hard when the CEO has his hand in everything and management cannot make a decision. Where is the B of D's in all this? Imagine someone coming around on New Years Eve at 4:30 to see who left early. Really! Where is trust?
