An Exercise in Futility

Manager (Current Employee)
Seattle, WA

I have been working at Corbis

ProsExperienced and competent co-workers
Good benefits
Downtown location

ConsPromotions are often of the wrong people into the wrong jobs
With few exceptions, managers are ineffective team leaders
Director level and above management is, for the most part, out of touch with employees
Lack of trust in upper management
Initiative to improve culture is being led by CEO and cronies

Advice to Senior ManagementManagers should be selected and promoted by their ability to lead a team toward common goals, not based on their tenure or success in pet projects
Consider programs such as Six Sigma to enact change/growth of focused, competent managers
CEO should excuse himself from projects to improve company culture

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
