Lost it's soul

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Oak Brook, IL

ProsPeers and team members below good to work with. Market leader despite themselves. Resting on their laurels of the past.

ConsToo many leaders detached from the messy process of managing. Lack of conviction and credibility of sr. management. Definetely passive-aggressive culture last few years with too many new leaders who only want to change things to show they are doing something new but they are not. Also bringing in their cronies from other companies and disrespecting the current culture of 80+ years. Sr. leaders do not have the admiration of they subordinates, really. Good old boy(and girl) beer binging mentality.

Advice to Senior ManagementRemove those sr. leaders who are posers and brutes. Create less autopsies of blame. Remove those who don't deliver "real" results and pretend they do.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
