Company with no employee morale

Middle Management (Current Employee)
Chicago, IL

ProsThe company offers some flexibility in hours and work-life balance. Participates in charity events. Provides social events for employees during major holidays and the summer.

ConsLeadership treats employees with no dignity. Company-wide quarterly meetings to address rapid company growth and impressive revenue, but cuts employee's pay and gives little to no raises year over year. Employees are treated as robots expected to do more with less with less pay.

Advice to Senior ManagementTreat the employees that make your revenue as valueable people. People who have families and dignity. The politics in the workplace are the worse I've ever seen. If you are not in the "clique" of executives, management and middle management white employees, you do not excel in this company. Its internal promotions are based on if you know someone in upper managment and nothing to do with hard work, dedication and knowledge. There is an "us" against "them" mentality displayed each day.

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