Nepotism and the Dollar Rule Here

Finance Assistant (Former Employee)
Houston, TX

ProsDecent Benefits and Vacation
Centralized location in Houston; Office bldg at Katy Frwy is old and badly in need of renovation.

ConsInability of company to meet announced deadline/changes within corporation
No accountability for Project Management when not complying with company policies/procedures.
No communication between management level and non-management employees; rumors rule.
Poor training program and unnecessary repetitive non job-related computerized training.
Employment/advancement/salary increases based on nepotism/politics especially at non-management levels, instead of employee contributions/accomplishments.
Too many "chiefs" (or employees who think they are); management top-heavy, especially at mid-management level.
Badly needed building repairs not made-safety issue. Painting over rusted stairwells does not solve the problem!

Advice to Senior ManagementTreat all employees with the respect you demand for yourselves, regardless of employment level.
Enforce accountability within SOX and company policies/procedures and eliminate the "good ol' boy" environment.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
