Clueless leadership

(Current Employee)

ProsThere are still some vestigial employees left from before the ongoing shakeup. I don't expect them to stay long, however.

Benefits are still good, but shrinking.

Beautiful campus.

ConsMiddle managers "manage up" to get approval from supervisors rather than nurturing eand leading employees.

New top management is cold-blooded and does not really stand for the original mission of consumer protection.

Advice to Senior ManagementKnock off the "us versus them" atmosphere created by many new upper-level managers.
Treat exempt and union employees with respect and dignity.

Be honest and transparent about the organization's goals.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
