Good people, poor management

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Boulder, CO

ProsThere are a good number of bright people who get things done. Compensation is good, people are friendly.

ConsManagement is often disconnected from the actual processes that makes them money. Middle management is working exclusively on the next promotion, and isn't paying attention to actually doing their job.

Advice to Senior ManagementMoving things offshore - back onshore - out of house - in house - offshore - onshore... isn't a plan. Neither is panicking when you realize you're not going to hit your deadline.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
